At Design Healthcare we offer the complete guidance and service to create your Changing Places Room, from layout’s and CAD plans, to supply and installation of equipment required. We project manage and work closely with yourselves to complete the perfect ‘Changing Places’ facility.
What makes a Changing Places facility ?
Changing Places are fully accessible toilets
Changing Places are designed so that they are completely accessible and provide sufficient space and equipment for people who are not able to use the toilet independently. They must be an extra facility, in addition to the accessible toilets for independent use.
To start, there must be adequate space in a Changing Places: three metres by four metres is the recommended minimum, with a ceiling height of at least 2.4 metres.
Equipment that should be included:
People with profound and multiple learning disabilities, as well people with other physical disabilities such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis often need extra facilities to allow them to use the toilets safely and comfortably.
Changing Places toilets are different to standard accessible toilets (or "disabled toilets") as they have extra features and more space to meet the needs of people who use them.
At Design Healthcare, we are also able to offer a full design, specification and project management service for your complete Changing Places project. This service is provided by a Chartered Surveyor and registered Access Consultant with 15+ years experience in creating accessible and inclusive environments. We appreciate that every project is different and needs a bespoke, tailored solution. We are able to offer this by ensuring close consultation with yourselves throughout the process to ensure that we can deliver an end result which completes your Changing Places project.
