Multiple Saniflo solutions for recovering heroes
Case studies 06/26/2018
Sanicubic, Sanispeed, Showermatic, Sanipack & Sanishower
Tedworth House in Wiltshire, is a personal recovery and assessment Centre for wounded soldiers; offering support and facilities to those who have suffered life changing injuries and illnesses. The centre is fully adapted to offer over 50 en-suite bedrooms and four family suites, with a range of specialist rooms for adaptive sports, education courses, relaxation and socialising; ensuring the best possible recovery for patients. These world class facilities have been provided thanks to the fundraising efforts of Help for Heroes.
Following renovations of the main house in 2011, a second phase of work to install a wellness centre in to the west wing was completed in 2012. This included The Phoenix Centre, a state- of-the-art gym complex with some of the UK’s most advanced adaptive sporting facilities. It boasts a Skiplex, an indoor ski simulator with a revolving ski slope and adjustable gradient that replicates a real piste, a hydrotherapy swimming pool, strength & conditioning gym, steam room, sauna and sports hall with a sprung floor.
Working with main contractor, Vinci Construction, A J K Services Ltd was appointed to carry out all M & E installations on the project. This included sanitation facilities in the West Wing supplied by Saniflo. In the Phoenix Centre 3 x Sanishower pumps were specified; one to provide water removal from the Skiplex and 2 further units to remove water from physiotherapy sinks. With only remote soil stacks a solution was required to pump water to the mains – and the Sanishower was the ideal solution pumping waste water up 4m, along 40m through 22mm small bore pipework to reach the main drainage pipes.
A whole selection of Saniflo products was specified for Jimi’s Wing, a new, purpose-built, 60-room facility, which has provided extra 30 en-suite bedrooms, 4 family suites, a games room, an IT suite, art room and more classrooms. A Sanicubic high performance macerating pump was installed to discharge waste and water from toilets, basins, showers and a cleaner’s sink sited in the basement, whilst 2 Sanispeed commercial pumps for lighter applications are providing the solution for the removal of waste water from sinks in the art rooms.
Keeping the look and feel of the refurbishments as contemporary as possible, A J K Services Ltd installed wall hung sanitaryware in two of the en-suites, but, facing similar issues with the remote location of the soil stack, turned to Saniflo for a solution. Sanipack macerators - designed to work with built-in bathroom units - enabled complete concealment of pipework to provide the flush, modern finish required.
In addition 4 Showermatics were fitted for the removal of waste water from showers in the en-suite rooms. The plug and go, low level pumps provide the answer where gravity drainage isn’t an option and pumps away up to 12 litres per minute of water.
A J K Services Ltd team work with Saniflo on many installation projects:
Saniflo has a comprehensive range of products that have helped us to install extra facilities at Tedworth House without having to carry out major alterations to the existing drainage systems. This has enabled us to maximise the space available to provide more treatment for the wounded.
Saniflo have a full range of pumps and macerators suitable for all applications, from small domestic to heavier commercial installations.
