Drawing from many years of experience, Care Spaces engages with designers, architects and contractors to ensure that specialist facilities such as a Changing Places toilet are compliant, delivered on time and on budget.

Our project consultants work with the Willmott Dixon team across the UK, and have delivered dozens of schemes across the UK in both new build and refurbishment projects.

You can find out more about the design parameters of a Changing Places toilet below, as well as download PDF examples and DWG files to assist you in your space layouts.

You can also send us your plans via the form below – we’re always happy to work on a layout which will be approved, or you can set up a virtual consultation meeting to chat through a specific project. We’re here to help you deliver the best for your client!
