Carreg Hir Primary School, previously known as Ysgol Newydd Primary School, is part of Neath Port Talbots 21st Century School programme. Carreg Hir is an amalgamation of 3 existing primary schools from the Briton Ferry area. Now a two form entry school for 420 pupils, with a 30 place nursery.
The newly formed Primary School required separate washrooms for both the pupils and staff. Julian Davies, Principal Architectural Manager at Neath Port Talbot Council chose Bushboard Washrooms to supply the school toilet cubicles as we were able to achieve the full specification required for the entire project. Julian explained, “I’ve used Bushboard in the past, they’re good quality and have a good range of toilet cubicles, brassware and sanitaryware."
For the Key Stage 2 area of Carreg Hir Primary School, Julian chose Bushboard’s HiZone school toilet cubicles in a range of bright vibrant colours; Yellow Glow, Bright Red and Cobalt Blue for the cubicle doors and Winter for the cubicle pilasters. HiZone full height school toilet cubicles were the ideal choice for ultimate privacy within the unisex school washroom areas. Julian explained, “Careful planning and good facilities discourage chances of bullying.”
Bushboard’s Profiles Kids school toilet cubicle range were selected for the infant and nursery areas. Safe, fun and reliable, designed specifically for younger children, with anti-finger-trap hinges and scalloped doors allowing for easy access and supervision. Again, in the same bright vibrant colours: Yellow Glow, Bright Red and Cobalt Blue doors and Winter pilasters for the infant school washrooms and Colour Creations laminate print doors and Cobolt blue pilasters for the nursery school washrooms.
The staff toilets benefitted from Bushboard’s WC ducting and easy access panels, allowing for sanitaryware and brassware to be fitted on site.
Bushboard were able to achieve the varied washroom requirements for the entire project. The washrooms have been greatly received, Julian commented, “the washrooms are very popular with both the pupils and staff."
