Toilet Refurbishment for Ernest Bevin College, London
Ernest Bevin College is situated in located in Tooting, London. The facility is a secondary level all-boys school and incorporates ages 11 through to 16 in addition to sixth form students.
The College’s toilet facilities were dated and in need of continual maintenance, costing the school a significant amount of money. Lan Services was approached and asked to offer ideas on how to refurbish the washrooms to a level where minimal maintenance would be required. The toilets were to be areas that the school could be proud of and discourage vandalism.
The washroom re-design, and subsequent specification, included glass toilet cubicles and full height glass IPS duct panel sets. These were back painted to a bold blue, matching the school emblem colours. This helped to create identity and the toughened glass ensured a robust cubicle system.
White Corian solid surface wash troughs added a very modern look to the rooms. Underframes with lockable access panels concealed pipework but allowed access for any future maintenance. Large pillar sensor taps were chosen for their bold and robust appearance and offered the additional advantage of saving water through their timed flow.
White Altro Whiterock wall coverings and black slate floor tiles meant surfaces were easy to clean and met modern standards with slip resistance and hygienic finishes.
The work was carried out during a busy summer holiday period across all toilet rooms within the school. All involved were extremely happy with the finished rooms. The school has subsequently referred Lan Services to other schools within the area looking to refurbish their toilets.
Rukhsana Sheikh, Principal at Ernest Bevin College gave the following testimonial:
“At Ernest Bevin College, we have specifically set out to create a practical, clean and modern working environment for all our students, staff and visitors. The toilet areas are integral to this policy and so when we looked at refurbishment options we choose these high specifications to ensure we had toilets that are not only durable but that are also aesthetically pleasing and that would help to create a positive working environment for all those in school.”
