The Flaxman Building at Staffordshire University was built in 1970 and spans more than 5000 square metres across seven floors. The project required the refurbishment of 12 different washroom areas spread over six of the seven floors of the Flaxman Building. Key drivers were mainly geared around a need to modernise the look and feel of the washroom areas and to bring them up to date with more recently developed parts of the campus. The University furthermore required a robust yet cost effective solution which would stand the test of time as the washrooms are high traffic, heavy usage areas.
Calling on nearly 40 years expertise in state of the art high pressure laminate fabrication and postforming, Starbank delivered a package solution comprising 12 Vanity Unit Sets, 18 Washroom Cubicles with integrated IPS panelling, 12 urinal IPS and more than 500 square metres of wall panels. All the products supplied were manufactured using high performance Compact Grade Laminate material which is specifically designed to create the best possible decorative solution for demanding environments. The product is designed to stand the test of time when used in demanding, wet or high humidity applications.
Starbank were an ideal partner for the University on this project as the company has built an enviable reputation for the manufacture and supply of high quality cubicle and washroom components as well as complete washroom systems. This offering comprises a comprehensive range of design options, specification support, rapid installation with pre-drilled components and responsibly sourced products which ensure that projects are easy on the environment. The rigorous application of lean manufacturing techniques at Starbank also ensured that the project was kept on time as well as on budget.
