Client: Curl La Tourelle
Type of works: supply and fitting of sinks, base units and wall cabinets
GEC Andersons Decimetric range of stainless steel worktops, sinks, base cabinets and wall cabinets were the preferred choice of architects Curl La Tourelle in the £1.8m sports hall project at St Michaels RC High at Garston, Hertfordshire.
The specialist sinks, base units and wall cabinets were used in fitting out the new First Aid Room and P.E Staff Office. The school, specifier and contractor were all very pleased with the units that were supplied and installed by GEC Anderson.
GEC Anderson use a combination of highly efficient, state-of-the-art, automated manufacturing processes and skilled craftsmen to produce a stainless steel finish that provides visual simplicity, intrinsic quality, durability, safety and hygiene that were considered desirable in the project.
The work features in an impressive new brick and cedar clad building, which transforms the public face of the voluntarily aided secondary school, as well as providing a new activities hall.
GEC Anderson supplied and fitted:
- Decimetric commercial grade stainless steel sink top with corner cut out, integral up-stand and lipped edges
- Integrated sink bowls with outlet and overflow fittings
- Stainless steel base cabinets with hinged doors, integral handles and adjustable feet and full length stainless steel plinth
- Stainless steel wall cabinets with adjustable shelves and hinged doors, again with integral handles
GEC Anderson Managing Director, Martin Tye, comments: This was an interesting project for GEC Anderson and it provides a really excellent example of the effective use of our Decimetric System.
Due to its modularity, Decimetric can be extremely cost-effective, thereby enabling the use of high quality stainless steel in areas that can definitely benefit from the durability and professionalism associated with stainless steel but where cost might otherwise be prohibitive.
Martin added: Curl La Tourelle have specified GEC Anderson products in a number of other schools, which is always pleasing.
GEC Andersons Decimetric range is a cost effective, versatile solution, because its modular system can be specified in 100mm increments. Products are fabricated under ISO 9001 compliant conditions in modern workshops.
The hard-wearing brushed satin stainless steel finish ensures the retention of a professional appearance, even after heavy use in the most demanding of environments.
