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.
Vanity Mirror Units were also included in the buildings 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.
Maxwoods 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 Maxwoods 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 Georges 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 washrooms working cubicle doors.
