LVS Ascot School

Altro combined wet room solution perfect for shower rooms refurbishment

Altro Pisces, Altro Whiterock White, Altro Whiterock Satins

LVS Ascot is an all ability independent school catering for children aged between four and 18 years old. The school offers both day attendance as well as boarding opportunities, therefore catering for pupils originating locally and internationally. The school holds places for over 900 pupils and is based in Ascot, Berkshire.

As part of their continual facilities development LVS Ascot identified two large shower rooms within a girls’ and boys’ dormitory in need of upgrade and refurbishment. The two shower rooms are identical, each containing four shower cubicles and a selection of changing room benches. The refurbishment project was carried out over a 3-week period during the school’s summer holiday break.

Of particular concern was that the slip-resistant floor covering should be capable of withstanding use by both bare feet and every day shoes and trainers. As such the specification included Altro Pisces safety flooring. The colour choices available in the Altro Pisces range were ideal for helping to create a combined feel of communal shower facility and residential bathroom necessary to provide pupils with that home from home feel.

The walls within the rooms were difficult to clean. The design therefore included Altro Whiterock, providing surfaces that can be easily wiped down.

While Altro Whiterock White was included across the majority of walls, the school was keen to inject some colour and opted for a feature colour wall in each room from the Altro Whiterock Satins range. Combined with the colour from the shower cubicles this left a bright and stimulating combination.

The overall project was a great success and achieved all that the school hoped for. The design of the rooms and installation was carried out by specialist washrooms refurbishment company Lan Services Ltd. Commercial Director Andy Seddon commented: “When designing a shower room there are a number of considerations but most importantly ease of maintenance, safety and appearance. The combination of Altro’s new Altro Pisces flooring range with the ever popular Altro Whiterock provided an easy to clean, non slip solution which looks great.”

Head of Facilities at LVS Ascot, Andrew Peat commented: “LVS Ascot was keen to ensure that ease of maintenance and safety considerations were included in the specification for our recent shower room refurbishment project to two dormitory washrooms. We are extremely happy with the finished rooms and will be looking to roll the specification out to other areas.”
