Internationally recognised Capital One’s Head Office has been located in Nottingham’s city centre for over 20 years. Voted one of the top five ‘Great Places to Work’ in the UK for the fifth consecutive year, Capital One recently turned their attention to breathing new life into their washrooms to give their staff the very best facilities throughout their office.
Capital One’s previous washrooms were dated and in need of a complete overhaul. Venesta were pleased to work alongside Nottingham-based contractors Rotunda Construction to bring Capital One’s employees brand new stylish, modern and easy to maintain washrooms, all delivered on time.
Venesta’s Unity toilet cubicles were specified in all six of the new washroom areas at Capital One. With setback satin anodised aluminium pedestals fixed to the partitions, Unity has a “floating” appearance which makes a huge impact in these modern washrooms.
The cubicles in the male and female washrooms were all specified in Solid Grade Laminate (SGL). SGL is an extremely impact and scratch resistant material so will withstand heavy usage in Capital One’s busy office. It’s also impervious to water, meaning the toilet cubicles can be regularly and thoroughly cleaned, so that excellent hygiene standards are maintained.
Capital One had a choice of 34 laminate finishes for their Unity toilet cubicles, and opted for Venesta’s luxurious wood effect ‘Dark Walnut’ laminate, which complemented the décor of the rest of the rooms.
The minimally designed, flush-fronted cubicles feature sleek satin anodised aluminium flip indicator bolts, faceplates and internal mortice locks, which complement the contemporary design of the cubicles. The indicator bolts offer a cleverly designed emergency release mechanism, so access to locked cubicles can be gained without causing damage to the lock or having to remove the door in the event of an emergency.
To complement the indicator bolts, the wall channels and headrail are also in satin anodised aluminium. Satin anodised aluminium does not chalk, chip, peel or fade, so the cubicles will stand the test of time at Capital One’s busy Head Office.
Unity’s stainless steel door hinges are not only durable, hard wearing and corrosion resistant, but they look great too! The rise and fall butt hinges can be set to fall open or closed, with Capital One opting for them to fall closed when not in use, adding to the effect of the flush-fronted appearance.
