Washroom Washroom has recently completed two office refurbishment projects for two separate but adjoining buildings in London’s Bloomsbury district.
The two eight-storey buildings on Alfred Place, both owned by GPE, have recently been refurbished to provide high-quality flexible office space and are now both fully let. Washroom worked closely with main contractor 8Build, to deliver new washroom facilities in both properties with minimum disruption.
At 33-34 Alfred Place Washroom installed new superloos from the basement area up to level six. Each self-contained unisex cubicle maximises the amount of space available, including a toilet, bespoke vanity units with glass upstands and mirrors as well as hand drying facilities. The team also installed disabled toilet facilities to exactly the same high specification design and finish.
Washroom prioritised hygiene with the installation of Washroom’s half height Concerto duct panel system behind each toilet. The addition of the system makes access for future maintenance easy as well as creating a hygienic, easy-to-clean surface. The duct panelling was faced with specially manufactured Linit Ultra low iron ribbed glass, to match the contemporary washroom design.
Additional facilities with showers and a changing area were installed in the basement for the newly created staff cycle centre. The facilities include 30 of Washroom’s Forza solid grade laminate lockers and 26 secure bike spaces, as well as bespoke white Corian bench seating in the shower areas. Washroom also installed a mirror which was manufactured from the same Linit Ultra low iron ribbed glass as the Concerto duct panels.
The refurbishment of number 31/32 Alfred Place involved the installation of Washroom’s full height flush front Alto laminate toilet cubicles and Concerto laminate duct paneling as well as work to box in the vanities on levels ground to sixth inclusive. All the required ancillary washroom items were also supplied and installed by Washroom for both properties as part of this project.
