Project Type: Washroom cubicles and toilets – refurbishment

Project Location: North London

Project summary

The project scope was to refurbish existing washroom cubicles and toilets.  The existing toilet soil pipes had been leaking sewage waste behind the cubicle panels.

This had soiled the concrete screed under the vinyl floors. The result was a very odious smell nuisance, which rendered the washroom unusable which forced the school management to close the use to the washroom.

Our schedule of works were to carry out the following:

Methodology

Remove existing washroom cubicles
* units were removed carefully being mindful not to cause damage to the newly decorated walls
* water services were capped off and made safe, and sewage connections were blocked and disinfected

Remove existing vinyl floor and concrete screed
* we removed the layers of vinyl flooring and disposed of same
* next was removal of the subfloor screed which was foul smelling from the sewage leaks
* muck was disposed of

Install new self levelled latex and anti slip safety vinyl flooring
* latex self levelling compound applied to the sub floor
* anti slip vinyl laid to floor and fixed with trowel on chemical resin

Install new toilet drainage
* the layout required an additional cubicle to the floor space. This required the existing drainage to be modified. All sewage pipes were modified to accommodate the new spacing of the cubicles

Modify the plumbing to prevent back flow siphonage
* a risk assessment of the fluid category risk was carried out to address the water regulations issues regarding back flow siphonage.* the washroom was rated with a fluid 5 category risk, which is the highest risk of fluid contamination.
* installation of the plumbing supplies for the toilet cisterns and wash hand basins were carried out in accordance with the technical specifications required to prevent back flow contamination between the sewage services and the local water supply.
* toilet cisterns were fitted with a Type AD – Air gap with injector installed to connected water supply with an additional AFL air gap isolator valve.

Install new durable washroom cubicles
* installation of washroom cubicles was carried out in accordance to the design specifications set by the school management.
10 washroom cubicles were installed with one unit fitted with Doc M white goods for physically impaired persons.
* the cubicles were constructed from Compact Grade Laminate composite material. This structure type provides durable and water proof cubicles as compared with the cheaper melamine faced chipboard carcasses.

Install new wash hand basins and vanity units
* wash hand basins were installed with single non-concussive taps supplied from a thermostatic mixing valve. The valve reduces the temperature to prevent scolding from the hot water supply.

Result

Successful refurbishment of washroom cubicles and wash hand basins. All Water Regulations observed and legal compliance of Building Regulations for washroom usage observed.
