Rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted since 2012, Wimbledon Chase Primary School teaches over 700 pupils aged 3-11. It offers an inclusive environment where individuality and diversity is celebrated and kindness and respect is instilled in every child.
The facilities were in need of a complete overhaul. Venesta accredited Installers, G Haslehurst Builders, were appointed to reconfigure the space which included the installation of contemporary, reliable and easy to maintain washroom systems, all in good time.
Versatile and robust Award toilet cubicles were specified due to the unrivalled safety features that come as standard. Anti-tamper fixings and emergency release indicator bolts make Award a popular choice for schools. These cubicles will stand the test of time thanks to the heat, scratch, impact and water resistant Solid Grade Laminate (SGL) coreboard material specified.
A fun, colourful washroom has been created by specifying the cubicle doors in ‘Golden’, ‘Lime’, Rouge’ and ‘Pacific’, while contrasting ‘Gunmetal’ pilasters and partitions complement the modern décor of the room perfectly.
SanCeram Chartham WCs were pre-plumbed to SGL Vepps panels and rigorously tested at Venesta’s manufacturing facility, meaning onsite installation time was halved. Vepps’ flush panels and anti-tamper locks secure the concealed duct space, keeping students and staff at Wimbledon Chase Primary School safe. 90° linear bearing hinges give simple access to duct space, which makes ongoing maintenance straightforward, compared to plain panel alternatives.
The hardwearing SGL vanity units are durable and totally impervious to water, so the facilities team at the school can clean and maintain the hand washing areas without the material being at all compromised. Each vanity unit was pre-plumbed at the Venesta factory with SanCeram semi-recessed basins and self-closing mixer taps, so installation time was once again greatly reduced.
Specifying self-closing taps means water waste and risk of flooring is greatly reduced at the school, as flowing water is automatically shut off after each use.
Both the students and staff at the school are delighted with the new facilities.
