Buckingham School

Enhanced Privacy Solutions for Educational Setting

Petal worked in conjunction with GSS Architecture and contractors Borras Construction to provide a series of toilet and shower cubicles, access panels, trough units, lockers and benches for this Buckingham school. This construction project which encompassed 4 phases in total, was the result of a significant £2.5m investment from Buckinghamshire Council to facilitate internal remodelling and refurbishment works to provide improved facilities and allow continued growth of the school. Due to oversubscription in recent years, additional space and upgrading was required and this fund helped provide a number of new projects including the replacement of the majority of toilet and shower facilities throughout the school for both students and teachers.

Petal’s Thor Plus cubicles were specified for toilets throughout the project, achieving a result which not only provided the robust finish required of a busy school environment, but also achieved complete privacy for the user, with the addition of overdoor panels to achieve a full height privacy experience. The WC cubicles include hinged access panels which provide a streamlined look for the interior and achieve easy access for maintenance purposes. Thor shower cubicles have been installed with flush access panels, completing a contemporary washroom look befitting of the design brief to achieve an enhanced light and airy aesthetic. With a 10 year warranty attached to the Thor range comes the piece of mind that this washroom solution will stand the test of time.

Petal helped achieve the aims of this project which included enhancing appearances and provide a light, airy, economical and sustainable space for pupils and staff.

All constructed from CGL materials, the Thor and Thor Plus cubicles provide the hard wearing and water resistant qualities necessary for any school environment, with the rough and tumble which comes with this territory. The pilaster feet not only contribute to the stylish finish of the cubicles, but provide exceptional strength, especially when coupled with strong aluminium profiles and three tamper-proof hinges per door.

Action benches have been installed in a stunning grey woodgrain which complements the overall colour scheme of the project. The selection of trough configurations for vanity units further adds to this aesthetic, with a streamlined look and feel prevalent across the project. The result is an application which is far from a drab school setting, but an impressive finish befitting of any modern sports environment.
