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.
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.
Work in Progress Photographs
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.
