Hansgrohe has opened its new specification centre, The Water Studio, on Clerkenwell Road in the heart of London’s design district. Spread over two floors, it sets out to demonstarte the company’s values of innovation, sustainability, quality, design and expertise.
UK Managing Director, Martin Mongan, comments: “Customer intimacy has been a key driver for us in the UK over the past few years… this means offering both practical project support and building stronger professional relationships.”
In addition to four working water stations and more than 200 products, features include podiums with ‘Quick Connectors‘ that allow easy exchange of products to showcase function and a ‘Behind the Wall’ area for installation tips. The first of its kind globally from Hansgrohe, the ‘Test Rig’ allows measurement and comparison of different products’ flow rates using sensors.:
Training and support are core to The Water Studio ethos. UK Sales Director – Projects, Jay Phillips, says: “Regulations are an important area, so we’ll be delivering RIBA Approved CPD seminars on WRAS compliance and Part G here, as part of a comprehensive programme of learning events.”
