Leading commercial washroom designer and manufacturer Washroom Washroom has featured heavily in a large office refurbishment on a popular business complex between Reading and London.
As part of a regeneration scheme at the Winnersh Triangle, an 85-acre business complex that homes over 50 businesses, Building 220 has been completely refurbished by Collins Construction.
The project has not only refreshed the building’s interior, bringing it up to Grade A standard office accommodation, but a new glazed entrance structure has meant the floorplate has been extended out over the main entrance under a new roof membrane.
The refurbishment saw Washroom work closely with the team from Collins Construction to install new male and female washroom facilities on all three levels of the building.
A stylish monochrome colour scheme was used throughout, creating a contemporary washroom space with a sleek, minimalist feel.
The new washrooms feature Washroom’s full height Alto toilet cubicles, which are part of its market-leading Iconica Collection, designed with the high end commercial market in mind.
With its flush front design, the Alto toilet cubicle creates a virtually seamless façade, while the full height provides complete privacy for users.
The Alto cubicles can be tailored to suit any interior design, with a massive scope of choices for specifying different finishes and colours.
This particular project saw the toilet cubicle doors faced with plain white laminate and finished with stainless steel DDA compliant pushplates and locks.
The Washroom team also installed bespoke white Corian trough-style vanity units, designed with a gentle slope to drain water away to keep the washrooms clean and tidy.
The soap dispensers and taps were wall mounted and the waste bins were inset into the bespoke vanity units to retain clean lines and mirror the minimalistic design achieved.
Corian is an increasingly popular choice for commercial office washrooms and for vanity units in particular, due to the fact that it’s easy to clean and durable enough to withstand the rigours of a high traffic environment.
The fact it’s available in an extensive range of colours and textures and can be cut to almost any shape means it also offers practically limitless possibilities for creating bespoke washroom areas.
Washroom’s Concerto integrated laminate duct panel system and laminate urinal ducts with toughened glass divisions were also installed in a crisp white colour, helping to complete the design.
Trevor Bowers, director at Washroom Washroom, commented: “This project demonstrates perfectly how by specifying high quality materials a beautifully simple effortless design can be achieved.
“The clean lines and monochrome colour scheme create a high quality finish which perfectly matches the rest of the building’s newly refurbished modern interior.”
