Queen Mary College
Queen Mary University of London briefed fabricators Decra to create an elegant and functional design for the high-traffic area of their washrooms.
Working with Dyson, the Corian® troughs were developed to contain the power required to wash and dry hands in one station, the power of the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers. This technical development was integral to the innovative success of this project.
Six-meter-long Everest Corian® wash troughs with integrated Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers were installed along two sides of the washrooms. The troughs were fabricated off-site at Decra to form one long, seamless piece with minimal disruption to the University.
By removing the need for wasteful paper towels, this solution also contributes to the University’s carbon reduction target; an extremely important facet of contemporary design for students and university staff alike.
“They look professional and ensure the washroom facilities reflect the institution’s innovative, premium reputation,” says Julien Dixon, Senior Project Manager, Queen Mary University of London.
The washroom marries contemporary design aesthetics with a clean and durable environment. This ground-breaking washroom solution contributes to the overall learning and student experience.
Fabrication was by Decra Ltd, utilizing Corian® troughs and Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryers.
