Leading washroom designer and manufacturer, Washroom Washroom, has recently completed the construction of a full sized mock-up washroom for a prestigious central London office refurbishment.
Created off-site at the company’s factory in Essex, the mock-up was built to full scale using the exact materials as specified for the New Bracken House project. The team worked closely with McLaren Construction to ensure all elements of the design were perfect before installation on site commences in the next few weeks.
Grade II* listed New Bracken House was home to the Financial Times until the late 1980s and is an iconic landmark thanks to its pink Hollington sandstone exterior, intended to match the colour of the paper’s pages. With Financial Times staff due to move back in next year, the current refurbishment by McLaren Construction is designed to bring its interior up to Cat B standard, creating a modern open plan office space.
The new washrooms, which will soon be installed on eight floors in both the North and South cores of the building, feature Washroom’s popular Alto full height toilet cubicles in high gloss white laminate. Integrated Concerto duct panels, manufactured in the same high gloss white laminate, will also be installed behind the WCs.
The bespoke Corian trough style vanity units have been designed to deliver a contemporary, high specification feel to complement the rest of the building. The stylish vanity units also feature Swiss Lamex metallic effect glass splashback panels behind the sinks for a completely bespoke finish, while Washroom’s Tego hinged mirror system above completes the design. Washroom is also set to install all the ancillaries in the washrooms as part of the project.
