Pancras Square is a new community building located in the heart of London’s King’s Cross, with public facilities


including a leisure centre, relocated modern library, café and a customer service centre. It’s set to be one of the greenest buildings in the UK after achieving a BREEAM Outstanding sustainability design rating, with features like a bio-roof, solar panel and solar fi ns. Prospec was specifi ed and installed


a range of its products – from lockers and cubicles to duct panelling and vanity units – not only within the new leisure facility, but also throughout the building. Working hand-in-hand with the project architects – experienced leisure facility fi rm LA architects – the team at Prospec developed the leisure centre specifi cation to include premium systems and high quality fi nishes to provide a truly modern changing and shower facility.


“The changing and shower facilities at


Pancras Square Leisure are designed with the user at the heart of the design,” says a spokesperson for LA architects. “The spaces are both bright and bold, which was especially important in this project as they’re located in the basement of the building. We specifi ed glass lockers and cubicles to best achieve this. The block colour of the lockers provides impact and vibrancy, while the translucent glazed shower cubicles subtly contribute to an added sense of spaciousness.” The use of glass throughout the


changing rooms was in fact a key part of the specifi cation, with the use of toughened and laminated locker and cubicle doors being particularly important for wet areas. The Cabrillant system – which has


been consistently improved and updated to maintain its status as a premium shower and changing room cubicle

for demanding leisure centres such as Pancras Square Leisure – has been installed at the new building, which is expected to have 500,000 users a year. Prospec also installed its Marathon Glass lockers, complete with KABA lock cylinders, into the leisure facility. Ease of cleaning is assured with


curved internal radius and sloping shelves that allow compartments to be hosed down with the assurance that the water will drain. Working closely with the main


contractor, Kier Major Projects, Prospec was also specifi ed and installed in all the toilet facilities within the 10-storey offi ce space. “Over the last 22 years, LA architects


have acquired a vast amount of experience in the design and delivery of highly successful leisure centre facilities,” concludes the LA architects’ spokesperson. “During this time, we’ve worked with Prospec on a considerable number of projects and we’re confi dent in specifying Prospec’s products. They provide the quality, robustness and aesthetics that are required for the demanding environments of leisure centre facilities.” Details: www.prospec.co.uk
