Gareth Tuxworth is the Capital Project Manager at Hopwood Hall College. Gareth was looking for washrooms which would stand the test of time, ‘The key to our washrooms is that they need to be robust and resilient, they need to be student proof, damage and vandalism proof. Everything we have installed and put together has been done to a good quality and that’s sturdy enough to withstand learners jumping all over it!’
Gareth chose Bushboard’s Aero Glass for changing and shower areas and Quadro toilet cubicles for the redevelopment of washrooms at both campuses. Bushboard’s ready plumbed modules (RPM) with exclusive range of sanitaryware and brassware, SanCeram was used throughout, ‘The pre-plumbed systems Bushboard offered made installation really easy, a lot quicker process than any other companies we looked at.’
‘We looked at the big sanitaryware brands, but the SanCeram range was good enough for us. Everything in the new washrooms look slick, giving it the wow-factor.’
Gareth saved both time and money by using Bushboard’s RPM, ‘Bushboard weren’t the cheapest, but with the amount of time it would have cost me to get tradesmen in to build all the panels, to put them together, build the frames, fix the frames, fix the sanitaryware, seal it all, it would have been a much longer process and would have cost us more money in labour. With Bushboard’s RPM, the process was fairly straight forward, we just put it together like a jigsaw puzzle.’
Hopwood Hall College’s colours are blue, grey and black, Gareth wanted to use these colours in the washroom areas so opted for Bushboard’s Pacific for the boys, Fern for the girls and Welsh Slate.
Gareth would recommend Bushboard Washrooms and use the products in the future, ‘Bushboard’s sales service, product and the practicality and ease of installing it is good. We would absolutely recommend Bushboard.’
