Citibank's mission is to serve as a trusted partner to their clients by responsibly providing financial services that enable growth and economic progress. The New York based company's London data centre is in Lewisham, where 1,000 employees work in data entry, technical suport, IT and account services.
Originally completed almost 20 years ago, the washroom facilities in the five storey building were tired and in need of updating. Citibank needed to update their staff washrooms wih easy to maintain systems. As Citibank embarked on a mission to improve the sustainability of Riverdale Data Centre, they took the opportunity to upgrade their employee's existing facilities, including the washrooms.
Venesta's Infinite Veneer Full Height cubicles were specified in 'European Oak Crown Cut' for Citibank's Riverdale Data Centre. The ultimate in classic modernity, FSC MIX certified Infinite Veneer delivers sleek, clean lines, flush-fronts and minimalist fittings. The adjustable pedestals in satin anodised aluminium are set back on the partitions to give the cubicles a "floating" appearance.
With a minimal floor clearance of 20mm and a ceiling clearance of 30mm, Infinite Full Height cubicles offer Citibank’s staff maximum privacy while using their new washroom facilities.
The stainless steel lever operated slimline mortice lock indicator bolts offer quick emergency release from outside of the locked cubicles; so that no damage is done to the cubicles or locks in the event of an emergency.
Meeting Building Regulations’ guidelines, Citibank Riverdale Data Centre specified ambulant cubicles with outward opening doors and our satin stainless steel pull handles for ease of use.
Vepps WC, urinal and wall panelling was specified with ‘Gunmetal’ panels and ‘Porcelain’ flashgaps in Solid Grade Laminate (SGL), as well as SGL urinal modesty screens. SGL is impervious to water so can withstand heavy duty cleaning, which is required in busy washrooms such as these. By choosing Vepps, Citibank had extra peace of mind as each panel and the market-leading sanitaryware was pre-plumbed and rigorously tested in our manufacturing facility before being installed on site.
Not stopping there, modern and stylish solid surface wash troughs in ‘Everest’ were chosen to complement the rest of the washroom systems specified. With SGL under frames in matching ‘Porcelain’ laminate, this is a durable and hard wearing vanity solution for heavy usage washrooms.
