Cofton Holiday Park Shower Room Refurbishment - Case Study
We returned to Cofton Holiday Park in Devon to carry out a substantial refurbishment project in early 2020. The site is home to a main restaurant and pub, which sits next to a swimming pool that is open to non-residential guests. This led the holiday park to consider a dedicated shower and changing room for pool users who aren’t staying on site.
After an initial site visit and survey, we drew a specification that worked for the client, taking into consideration the diversity of users and also the available space. After removing the existing toilets, we reconfigured the space in order to accommodate two shower enclosures in both the male and female rooms. This required re-routing the waste pipes and mains feeds as well as installing an Aco floor gulley drainage system for the showers.
As part of this refurbishment, we also supplied and installed new PVC windows and doors, delivering a fresh revitalised finish both internally and externally. A new PIR lighting system with low energy LED lighting was installed along with individual extraction for each washroom. The ceiling was re-boarded and plastered, while Altro Pisces vinyl safety flooring was used on the floor. This material has anti slip properties that also work in wet conditions with bare feet.
The walls were covered in a large format wall tile to match a previous washroom refurbishment we carried out at Cofton. However, in the shower areas, we fitted Altro Whiterock for unrivalled hygiene and waterproof performance.
We installed Delabie Sporting shower panels, a model that offers both shower head and controls in a single neat unit, making future maintenance easy and simple. Cubicles were made from solid grade laminate, a material completely waterproof. This material was also used for the toilet cubicles, as well as cladding the DUCT sets used to house all the cisterns and associated pipework for the toilets and urinals.
To minimise touch points, we also installed DVS sensor flush controls for the toilets and urinals, as well as a DVS deck mounted sensor tap teamed with a solid surface wash trough. The sensor controls on the urinals also emit a small pre-flush before someone uses them. This lubricates the waste opening and prevents buildup and smells.
This project was carried out in low season and our team worked carefully to ensure minimum disruption to the day to day operations at Cofton Holiday Park.
