Project Summary

Cleeve Park School in Sidcup, Kent, embarked on a major refurbishment of its students’ washroom facilities. It involved demolishing the existing male and female toilets and building a single unisex facility.

The remodelled area required new flooring and a boosted water system as well as modern, stylish fixtures and fittings. With years of experience in washroom design and refurbishment, Interfix was selected to carry-out the renovation during the school holidays.

To encourage a sense of wellbeing among users, it was important to create a welcoming environment within the new 150m2 washroom area. This was achieved by providing open access to the washroom via a school corridor. Increasing the sanitary area’s visibility allowed staff to spot instances of bullying or antisocial behaviour more easily.

To deter vandalism, a laminate ceiling was installed in the toilets, with sensors fitted above cubicles to alert staff to smoking. The cubicles, made of durable, solid-grade laminate, included a 20mm gap at the base to help eliminate episodes of antisocial behaviour.

With the long-term performance of the washroom very-much at the forefront of its design, circular, stainless steel wash troughs – capable of withstanding wear-and-tear – were specified. These were augmented by sensor-controlled taps; an energy-saving measure which will not only help the school cut its energy costs, it will reduce its long-term carbon footprint.

Having specified product-type and quantity, Interfix completed the washroom’s full refurbishment within the school’s strict six-week deadline to the client’s full satisfaction.

Cleeve Park School was presented with a safe, stylish unisex washroom for the start of the new term. Its user-friendly layout and the durability of its high-quality features will ensure it retains a comfortable, non-threatening air for a long time to come.
