Integrated into the build at the drawing stage, the Changing Places toilet is conveniently located on the ground floor.

JD Wetherspoon’s is the first major pubchain to install a Changing Places facility.

The facility delivers continuity of design for Wetherspoons toilets, whilst having the room (12m2) and layout for the hoist, height-adjustable changing bench and privacy screen that form integral equipment within Changing Places.

Wetherspoon’s has previously won the UK Trophy for Accessible Toilets, and almost 450 of its pubs won at least a gold rating at the Loo of the Year Awards.

Wetherspoon Development Support Manager, Daniel Warner, discussed the installation: “The Velvet Coaster has been designed as a showcase for our brand, hence our decision to include a Changing Places toilet in there.”

“Clos-o-Mat is heavily involved with the Changing Places campaign and Loo of the Year Awards, so was a logical choice for the supply and installation. Where appropriate, we will endeavour to include Changing Places in future Wetherspoons developments.”

At present, over 700 Changing Places have been installed at venues across the UK. A Changing Places toilet is now ’desirable’ under Building Regulations Approved Document M and BS8300:2009 for all new pubicly accessible build and refurbishment projects.

As a reference point for those considering installing a Changing Places toilet, Clos-o-Mat offer white paper, 2D and 3D CAD drawings, standard layouts and videos on its website.
