Geberit teaches lessons in sustainability
Geberit has provided a total plumbing solution at Gwenfro Community Primary School in Wrexham, which has undergone a £4.9 million makeover funded by the Welsh government.
The school was constructed in a highly sustainable way, including ‘fabric first’ design, and was rated as ‘excellent’ by sustainability assessor BREEAM. Contributing to the rating by helping to save water, Twyford products installed include an air button dual-flush concealed cistern and E100 round basins with push-button Sola non-concussive taps.
Twyford’s Sola School rimless WCs, both closed and open-fronted, have also been installed, while an ambulant Doc M cubicle, featuring Twyford’s Avalon back-to-wall rimless WC and grab rails, was included.
Apart from Twyford, all plumbing comes courtesy of Geberit Mepla multi-layered pipe, which combines the advantages of synthetic and metallic materials. Light and corrosion-resistant, Geberit Mepla is more inherently stable and durable than plastic pipes.
Providing a one-stop solution for piping and washrooms, Geberit and Twyford are an ideal combination for school projects where time constraints, budget, sustainability, downtime and the practicality of the end product are on the agenda.
