Maxwood has fitted the eight storey office space with bespoke washrooms

The washrooms include Marante flush-fronted cubicles with a pilaster design. The full-height cubicles are manufactured using laminated panels and the doors have a Wedge effect finish.

Xeista Cascade Vanity Troughs were also fitted in the washrooms. Maxwood has designed its Troughs with descending slopes, which allow water to flow directly into a drainage gully.

The Troughs have been designed to keep washrooms looking neat as the slopes avoid the creation of splash marks. They are manufactured in white Quaronite solid surfacing and finished with chrome mono mixer taps.

Maxwood designed the urinals for the male washrooms in a way that complimented the building’s architectural design

Vanity Mirror Units were also included in the building’s new washrooms. The units have been manufactured with gas-strut hinges to allow quick access to paper towel and soap dispensers.

This feature has been included to help with the maintenance of the dispensers, enabling users to refill them efficiently.

Maxwood’s ’superloos’ were specified for the office suite on the top storey whilst separate male and female washrooms were provided on the other floors of the building.

The ’superloo’ units were fitted with a toilet pan and washbasin, as well as a unit from Maxwood’s Xaron range.

Each unit has pre-laminated framework and pre-hung removable panels which have been incorporated in the design for easy installation.

Maxwood fitted the basement of St George’s Court with showers and changing facilities complete with benching. This has been included to encourage people to cycle to work.

Maxwood also solved an aesthetic problem whilst working on the project. Vertical structural beams, which ran through the female washrooms on each floor, were concealed with a ’dummy’ panel door.

The panel door was designed by the company to match the washroom’s working cubicle doors.
