Maxwood Washrooms make smart work of city office makeover
Smart new washrooms, superbly styled and manufactured by Maxwood, are part of the refurbishment of a landmark office building in the City of London.
Outdated washrooms at 30 Gresham Street, the London branch of a leading German bank, have been replaced with elegant flush-fronted cubicles, custom-made from Maxwood’s Marante system. Cubicles are complemented by new vanity units in sparkling white quartz and glass panelling, bonded to existing tiled walls for a sleek, modern finish. In addition, Maxwood refurbished several shower areas, provided for the convenience of employees who cycle to work. As part of a complete supply and fit package, Maxwood’s installation teams also undertook all washroom plumbing and worked quickly and efficiently to complete the prestigious project within a tight timescale while the building remained occupied by banking staff.
A popular choice for executive washrooms, Maxwood’s Marante range offers full-height cubicle styling for total privacy. The versatile system features a unique pilaster design, rebated to run in-line with the doors, and is used with fall-to-close hinges to maintain a flush appearance. For the washroom refurbishment at Gresham Street, new Marante cubicle doors and pilasters were fixed to existing tiled divisions. Cubicles are finished in a fashionable grey Koto real-wood veneer laminate, which provides the warmth and beauty of natural wood with the long lasting, low maintenance benefits of high pressure laminated panels.
Maxwood’s modern makeover for the office washrooms also included replacing existing hand basins with pure white vanity units and chrome finish mono mixer taps. The new vanity tops were manufactured from Dupont’s Zodiaq range of 30mm quartz surfaces, designed to deliver diamond-like radiance and durability. Complementary fixtures and fittings add the finishing touches to the washrooms’ light, contemporary interiors, including stainless steel skirting and recessed stainless steel units combining paper towel dispenser and waste bin.
Maxwood Washrooms’ Operations Director, Rolf McMullan, says the Gresham Street project is a showcase for Maxwood’s single source supply solutions for the demanding commercial sector. He comments: “Our experienced teams worked with the project designer and contractors to provide a total product and service package for this prestigious office refurbishment, from the design and manufacture of high quality washroom solutions to installation, plumbing and remedial works on site.”
