Type of works: supply of Academy cubicles, vanity units and benches, in addition to IPS Evolve sanitaryware.
Designed and built by award winning developers, Rydon, St Pauls Academy in Greenwich finally opened its doors to pupils this month after being delayed by snow.
Built on the existing campus of St Pauls Catholic School, the new academy will eventually accommodate 1,200 students.
The single site houses a sports and assembly hall, kitchen and refectory, admin space and general classrooms, in addition to specialist areas that include dance and drama, music, food tech and science laboratories that all reach a BREEAM rating of Very Good.
Working with St Pauls Trust, Rydon ensured only the most robust products were specified, hence the decision to make Armitage Venesta (AV) the sole manufacturer and supplier of all washroom and changing cubicles, vanity units and benches. AVs Academy range with its steel-cored anti-vandal structure, was specifically designed for the hardest working school environments, was installed to provide a washroom solution that will stand the test of time and still look impressive.
AVs pre-plumed system, IPS Evolve, with its factory-fitted sanitaryware, was used across the academy to provide easy clean surfaces that promote hygiene and provide easy access for ongoing maintenance.
