Washroom Washroom has provided a design solution for a high specification office washroom changing area using its off-site service.
Landmark nine-storey building, 4 Kingdom Street, features various wellbeing design features, from a ‘glass pod’ meeting space to a social rooftop space.
Washroom Washroom worked closely with Allies and Morrison and main contractor Wates Construction to create unique washrooms and showers. Washroom saved time and money by utilising its off-site construction methods, perfecting the design before installation on site.
The full height Alto toilet cubicle doors were trialed off-site by Washroom at the Essex factory to find the ideal colour of the stain to match the solid Douglas fir timber panelling in the reception area. In addition, the cubicles incorporate a bespoke iPad holder and feature a flush front design for a virtually seamless facade.
Washroom also provided a full-size mock-up to create an accurate representation of the finished product. Greg Holme, associate director at Allies and Morrison said: “The washroom mock-up was part of our specification and was vital to the success of this project. Washroom worked closely with us to deliver exactly what we were looking for and I know the client is happy with the end result.”
Once the design was approved, the washrooms were deconstructed and stored safely at the factory ready to be delivered to site when required.
Vanity units were also provided by Washroom, with cast polished concrete tops manufactured by MASS Concrete and integral waste bins. The Tego hinged mirror unit was fitted above the sinks, providing a neat and hidden storage solution.
Finally, a staff shower and changing room area was installed by Washroom in the basement of the building. The area utilises full height Alto FENIX shower cubicles combined with Z style Forza solid grade laminate lockers.
