As a comparatively recent concept, many building service businesses are unaware of the breadth of equipment and associated ancillaries required – putting strain on timescales and budgets.
Clos-o-Mat is a disabled toilet provider that provides an in-house, value engineering solution. It provides design advice, supply, installation, project management and on-going service/maintenance across all equipment required.
Kelvin Grimes, Project Manager at Clos-o-Mat and Changing Places, discussed the misconceptions companies have when fitting a disabled hygiene room:
It contains more than a WC; it has a hoist, a big changing bench, it needs electricity as well as a water supply, it needs load-bearing walls if not understood, these cause significant delays and cost to the project.
We deal with every element of these toilet facilities day in, day out. Thus we have the knowledge and expertise to ensure time and effort is not wasted, and the progress of the project is kept on track.
