Westminster City Hall, the landmark headquarters of Westminster City Council has undergone a 2 year, £60 million refurbishment. The 19 storey, 17,090 square metre building has been completely transformed, improving energy efficiency and reduce running costs. Delta Laminates has played a significant role in the core fit out, manufacturing and installing over £950,000 of washroom products.
Built in the 1960’s Westminster City Hall was no longer fit for purpose. The council’s brief to architects BDP, was to “create an environment better suited to the council’s important civic function”. The challenge was to provide professional office accommodation fit for the next 50 years. The council also decided to generate income from letting surplus accommodation. In an area of high demand for high quality offices, this will help to support ongoing council services. To achieve this goal, the demanding brief also required the completed building to pass assessment to BREEAM Excellent rating.
Delta Laminates worked seamlessly with Westminster City Hall main contractor, ISG plc and acted as project managers for the washroom core-fit out. Befitting the high quality brief, executive style Zenith flush fronted cubicles have been selected for all washrooms, with full height doors. This sleek, full height system offer optimum privacy. Finished in Formica American Walnut high pressure laminate, each cubicle also features APS (Applied Panel System) Duct Wall. Finished in the same woodgrain effect, APS neatly conceals all services.
Vanity units are manufactured with Corian Solid Surface tops in warm Cameo White finish, to complement the cubicles. This achieves a seamless luxury finish. Vanity downstands are constructed using high pressure laminate with Anodic Bronze finish. The effect is stunning, achieving a lustrous metallic finish.
In addition to the cubicles and vanity units, Delta Laminates also supplied and fitted all the sanitaryware and brassware throughout the core fit-out phase. Instead of conventional vanity upstands, each washroom also featured environmentally friendly recycled enamelled glass splashbacks. All were supplied and fitted by Delta Laminates.
