Toilet Refurbishment in Melksham

Client: Valldata
Value: £40k

Cre8tive was asked to carry out a toilet refurbishment in Melksham by looking at Valldata’s current toilets as they were showing the signs of age. There were two sets, reception side for visitors, and the office side which were much larger and were for the office staff.

Access is restricted into the office side . We were asked as the customer had seen a recent project on our website for Pew Hill House toilet refurbishment and liked what they saw. Please click on this link if you would like to look at this project first / as well as this one.

Existing Toilets

The photographs below show the two sets of toilets to be done, as you can see they look fairly dated and probably fairly typical of many toilets that need refurbishment. Our first step is to look at what they have, have a meeting to discuss what the customer likes and dislikes, produce some drawings and plans, cost the project and then carry out the work. Easy really!

Planning and drawing work

We follow the same basic principle for all projects, before anything we have to look and see what is there, measure everything and draw it. Regardless of what the final specification is the measuring and drawing allows us to be accurate with the costs. It was apparent that a large part of the costs would be tiling, so it is important to get the meterage correct. We can lay out the suspended ceiling grid as well so the light positions can be worked out. Once the basic cost is determined we can adjust the specification to suit the customers budget so we show all of the costings and juggle things around to get to a cost that everyone is happy with.

Within the scope of work we had to carry out the following:

  • Design and drawing work
  • Stripping out.
  • New suspended ceiling.
  • All walls dot and dabbed, drylined, tape and jointed.
  • New tiling, with decoration of non tiled walls
  • New plumbing, new radiators.
  • Electrical work, new lighting and power for the Dyson air blades
  • New toilet cubicles and vanity units
  • New non slip vinyl flooring throughout, with coved skirting to facilitate cleaning.

Poor Standard of Toilets?

We have carried out a few projects now using this toilet cubicle partition system, which is actually mid range, so not the cheapest but also not too expensive. There are many styles and finished and so we can change the design and look depending on what the customer likes. The first stage is giving us a call to let us have a look to see what we can do.

Mezzanine Floor Extension Project in Salisbury

Client: Quality Lifts
Value: £44k

Cre8tive were asked to look at a new mezzanine floor extension for Quality Lift Products based at Whaddon Business Park in Salisbury. The project was really interesting as there were many different things to consider.

As well as working out the office layout and lighting, we helped the client organise a number of things themselves in order to keep costs down to a minimum and in effect only used us for doing the specialist work of dry lining, tape and jointing, demountable partitioning, commercial flooring, suspended ceilings and contract wall covering. A small detail was that inside the lower room, the customer wanted the floor plates sunk into the concrete so maximise the space and so that there were no unsightly bolts sticking up out of the floor. The difficulty with this, is that you cant just cut a hole in a concrete floor, you have to check that the composition will be strong enough to support the weight of the mezzanine and that you do not go down too deep affecting the structure of the floor. Cre8tive obtained some specialist advice before carry out the work. The floor was extremely hard to cut and needed a petrol disc cutter with water cooling to achieve it.

Office Extensions

If you have warehouse space and want to extend your offices then we would be delighted to offer some free advice. We are interiors specialists and not a dedicated mezzanine floor manufacturer, as we just sub contract the steel work out, we do what we always do and use our experience in looking at the inside space to make sure it works for the client. In this case, they did not want the cost of moving the lift and needed more space, and so we advised them that we could build around the problem which they did not think was possible. Over the years we have experienced many problems like this and we can usually come up with a solution.
