Working within an existing space on the second floor, the architect created a room with sufficient floor area by removal of an old lift-shaft wall. This created a room with an unusual plan, but with the recommended floor space of 12m².
The constraint was the remainder of the solid concrete beam that bisected the room and drove our design to create a larger part of the room which contained all the equipment which required hoisting. The smaller remaining section has a lower ceiling height and contains the basin and coat pegs.
We installed all the equipment necessary to create a compliant Changing Places toilet, with a GoLift patient hoist on an XY track system, a height-adjustable changing bed, a height-adjustable basin, folding and fixed grab rails, a wall-fixed privacy screen, hand dryer, paper dispensers, and coat hooks.
Assisting the architect with layouts, first-fix details, and services layouts, the project was finally handed over in April 2020
