Private washrooms for a public research university

Imperial College London’s newest campus is located in White City. Part of a large scale redevelopment of the west sub region of London, the construction of the two new university buildings form a £110m Research and Translation Hub.

Located in Building C, Washroom Washroom provided Imperial College London with full height Marcato HPL cubicles with 20mm flush fascia solid grade Formica laminate doors and pilasters in Maui, matching 12mm duct panels and 12mm partitions in Folkestone.

Research from the Lifting the Lid on Washrooms white paper by Formica Group indicate it is young adults (18-24) who are most fastidious about using clean public toilets. The same group also show the highest instances of being very likely to avoid touching bathroom surfaces (31%) due to hygiene concerns, when compared to older and younger generations. This is also the age group most concerned about the size of the gap between the floor and the base of cubicle panels.

Regular cleaning and maintenance is essential for all toilet facilities and understandably public toilets come under the most scrutiny. The specification of HPL with its antimicrobial properties that kill microorganisms and stops their growth, helps address hygiene concerns by contributing to a cleaner washroom environment. To address privacy concerns the cubicles are designed using floor to ceiling panels.
