WASHROOM


LEONARDO GOES BACK TO SCHOOL!


Jonathan Hooper, Marketing Manager, Northwood Hygiene Products explains how Leonardo products have come to the rescue and kept colleges clean and free of viral outbreaks since installation.


Stamford Endowed Schools consists of four distinguished private schools based in the historic Lincolnshire town.


For boys, there is Stamford School founded in 1532, Stamford High is the equivalent for girls, founded in 1877, together with a co-educational Junior School and a Sixth Form College. Proudly claiming to develop young people who are “rounded and grounded” the school recently reviewed the procurement of its washroom dispensing towel and tissue provision.


Recognising that this was potentially a big investment across all four sites and with the further need to provide for both boarders and day pupils they decided that they needed some first class advice and support. Contacting CCL, a Cambridge-based supplier of washroom and janitorial products and services, they discussed the requirements in detail. School day routines mean that there are regular periods of high usage, so there must be sufficient dispensers to meet the demands to ensure that hand hygiene standards are maintained.


The dispensers need to be easy to fit to cause minimum disruption to beautiful old buildings and of course they must be easy to monitor and maintain. CCL talked to the Leonardo National Sales Team and together they formulated a proposition that was accepted by Stamford Endowed Schools and the installation was carried out. The good looking dispensers have contributed to the creation of modern and hygienic washroom environments that have encouraged tidiness and discouraged

waste. It has also generated a massive 15% reduction in cost when compared to the previous regime that used folded towels. The mechanical hands free presentation of a single sheet has discouraged unnecessary over-usage and the reported reduction in overflowing bins has made life a lot easier for the maintenance staff.


Lady Frances Sidney, Countess of Sussex and is located in the historic heart of Cambridge. Faced with the outbreak and recognising that hand hygiene was the heart of the problem, the College immediately decided to implement (as might be expected!) a typically thorough review of all of its existing hand hygiene provision. The review uncovered the fact that a myriad range of differing towels and dispensing systems and indeed, suppliers that had grown up over the years.

Considered to be a huge success overall, this is not the first time that CCL and Leonardo have teamed up to provide innovative and practical solutions to the needs of educational establishments.


Their previous experience of working together in the sector was at Cambridge University’s Sidney Sussex College. Some years ago, this establishment, one of Cambridge’s oldest and most famous colleges was hit by an outbreak of norovirus. Sidney Sussex College was founded on St. Valentine's Day in 1596 by legacy of


After conducting its research and holding various trials, the College concluded that for them, disposable hand towels represented the very best overall solution. Susan Dawks of CCL was asked again in partnership with the Leonardo National Sales Team, and a proposal was made that featured both Leonardo’s mechanical hands free dispensers and Versatwin dispensers. The recommendation was duly accepted and implemented; one supplier and one product.


With no further bacterial outbreaks since the installation of Leonardo, the whole operation has been deemed a great success. So it was no real surprise then that when a new building and hostel were commissioned, Leonardo was specified to play its part in keeping both students and the faculty healthy.


Developing working partnerships with like-minded and progressive distributors creates innovative solutions is proving to be mutually beneficial to all concerned and resulting in some very happy end users.
