Kingston University – Penrhyn Road

A refurbishment project improved the University’s wash rooms, corridors and common areas including: flooring, ceilings, lighting, rewiring central heating, plumbing, sanitary fittings and door replacements. A hidden element of the project was to incorporate fire stopping measures whilst the ceiling and partitioning work was taking place, meaning in the event of a fire the flames and smoke would be held back for the maximum amount of time to aid people’s escape.

The twelve wash rooms had the most dynamic makeover with the Axis team installing concealed cisterns and plumbing, sensor pneumatic flushes and mixer taps and high specification sanitary ware and sinks. Overall the project’s preventative and restorative nature improved the building whilst ensuring that the areas remain fit for purpose and that Kingston University would be able to attain the optimum life span from the improvements, until the next cycle.
