Classroom Into Toilet Transformation
The Westlands School asked us to carry out this classroom into toilet transformation because of growing student numbers resulting in additional facilities being a necessity. A preferred option for the school was to convert a large classroom, not used on a regular basis, into two toilet blocks.
Both male and female toilet blocks were required and the school asked for open access toilets that still provided privacy. The first stage of the project was to completely strip out the classroom and divide it into two areas that would become the boys and girls toilets. We worked closely with building control to ensure that the toilets met all current regulations. Building control oversaw all structural alterations as well as the upgrading of the drainage system which required new connections being installed to assist the change of use.
With the old classroom being separated into two, we installed ten cubicles per room. Each cubicle installed was a floor to ceiling, full privacy design. We added circular hand wash stations to the entrance of each toilet block. Designed to have a spacious feel but also provide private areas beyond, both entrances are very open. The original windows were converted with white panels for privacy and a new suspended ceiling with LED light panels was installed to create a light modern feel.
The much needed facilities are already in use and the school is extremely happy with the results.
