As part of the John Cabot Learning Federation a schools partnership responsible for 5600 students and 1200 staff Summerhill weren’t simply looking to make running repairs to the building. Summerhill are pioneering changes for continuous improvement for the benefit of their students and Ashton was pleased to be involved with this process.
Ashton Painting Contractors & Building Services limited were able to help Summerhill academy convert single sex toilets into an open plan unisex toilet block. One of the overall philosophies behind this project was to make a more visible space that would prevent bullying in secluded spaces. With such an important space it was important that the building refurbishment of this visible area was completed to a the usual high standards afforded to all of the forward facing areas of the school. This was the perfect project for Ashton as we treat all refurbishments equally, applying the same high quality of workmanship to the toilets, broom cupboards and boiler rooms as we do to grand halls and elegant vestibules.
