Having undergone a £4.9 million makeover, Gwenfro Primary School in Wrexham required a plumbing solution, which was provided by Geberit.
The school was upgraded from an existing 1950s school and amalgamates juniors and infants. The school offers increased capacity, including nursery provision, seven classrooms, a shared hall facility and administrative accommodation.
Gwenfro school has been BREEAM rated ‘Excellent’, constructed in a highly sustainable way, including ‘fabric first’ design, good use of natural daylight and ventilation, plus solar photovoltaic panels to provide electricity.
A Twyford air button dual flush concealed cistern was installed to save water, as well as Twyford E100 round basins incorporating Sola non concussive taps, with the push button action preventing water wastage by turning off automatically.
Twyford’s Sola school rimless WCs, both closed and open fronted, have been installed throughout the new facilities to provide hygiene and easier cleaning. In addition, Gwenfro also includes an ambulant Doc M cubicle, featuring Twyford’s Avalon back-to-wall rimless WC and grab rails.
Apart from Twyford, all plumbing comes courtesy of Geberit Mepla multi-layered pipe, which combines the advantages of synthetic and metallic materials. Corrosion-resistant and light, Geberit Mepla is more inherently stable and durable than plastic pipes. Enabling fast work progress and subsequent economic advantages Geberit Mepla also ensures peace of mind as it is permanently leak proof.
John Roberts from Margden Heating, the plumbing and heating installers at Gwenfro, said: “Margden has been installing Geberit Mepla for a number of years; its speed and efficiency is ideal for the school environment. Twyford offers everything a school needs, from water saving flushing and easy-to-use taps, to more hygienic rimless WCs and products specifically designed for younger children.”
