Kensington and Chelsea College is a further and higher education college based in West London. It offers a huge range of courses both full-time and part-time to students of all ages and cultures.
The college’s standard of teaching in 2012 was rated as good by Ofsted and recently became an associate college member for The National Skills Academy for creative and cultural. Their partner organisations include the National Portrait Gallery, The Science Museum, V&A, Hampton Court Palace, The Royal Opera House and Tower of London.
Their mission is to be a first class and first choice provider of education and apprenticeships in a wide range of skills. 15% of their students are aged 16 to 18 and they currently employ over 350 staff. To meet the demand of catering for all, they needed washrooms for male and female users, parent and child washrooms and accessible washrooms.
For their design they chose a sharp, clean look to provide a professional and hygienic feel for such heavy footfall washrooms, preparing for heavy traffic from early morning to late in the evening.
They needed products that were stylish yet durable and chose our BC928 stainless steel maxi paper towel dispenser as this is excellent for use in large washrooms. A lockable paper towel dispenser helps to combat vandalism in child/student washrooms. It also has a flush lock to facilitate easier cleaning for janitorial teams and is finished in a high quality stainless steel for durability and hygiene.
To win the debate of dryers vs. paper towels they opted for both, choosing our BC2001 high-speed hand dryer to cater for those users who prefer a hand dryer to paper towels. With a variable motor speed and heater on/off facility, this dryer operates at 225 watts with heater off, helping achieve maximum economy and saving on energy costs. These were also finished in stainless steel to match the paper towel dispenser, ensuring the look and feel of the washroom stayed consistent. This dryer comes with a HEPA filter which reduces the spread of dust particles helping to keep the washroom hygienic.
For the parent and child washroom facilities, they chose our BC100SSC-SM recessed satin stainless steel nappy changing unit. Featuring cushioned safety corners and equipped with a durable highgloss tray that is inherently bacterial resistant, this was a comfortable, secure option that makes for a pleasant washroom experience for both parent and child.
