Formed in 2015 Dartford Primary Academy is a three form entry school ranging from Nursery to year six. Knowing that all students have individual needs, they strive to ensure that each student is able to learn, experience and feel valued to their fullest potential. With this in mind the current school extension on their junior site, will primarily be used for children with special educational and health needs.
Main contractors Galliford Try worked closely with TBS Amwell to ensure that the student’s specific needs were met within the washroom areas. Designed to be open planned, the washrooms offer easy supervision to ensure the safety of the pupils. With this in mind when specifying the toilet cubicles, TBS Amwell knew that they needed to provide privacy, independence and a sense of freedom for the students.
TBS Amwell’s Splash Tall range was the perfect match for Dartford Primary Academy. Utilising full height doors with a minimum ceiling clearance, Splash Tall provides privacy and personal space but still allows supervision when needed by having a 100mm floor clearance. Emergency release door locks offer peace of mind for teachers, carers and parents in case of an emergency. As well as meeting the schools everyday requirements, Splash Tall provides long lasting performance being manufactured from Solid Grade Laminate material which is hard wearing and durable as well as water and impact resistant. With a wide range of colours available,
the school went with a bold colour theme ensuring there was a clear visual contrast between different items within the washroom and the cubicles.
As well as the Splash Tall toilet cubicles, TBS Amwell provided PDQ (Pretty Darn Quick) Panel & Frame Ducting and PDQ Vanity & Frame units to the washroom areas. Both complete the washroom look with the added bonus of quick and easy installation for the fitting team. Arriving pre-assembled, both metal framed systems cut labour time compared to traditional timber frames.
