Using an independent accessible bathroom consultant can make the whole process easier and a lot less stressful. Knowing you have an experienced person on your side, who has been involved in many hundreds of accessible / disabled bathroom designs can only be a advantage – making you aware of what to expect and reducing any risk ellements that may emerge.
Accessible Bathroom Consultants are a unique company and are probably the first of its kind to offer independent “advice only” on accessible / disabled bathrooms.
We differ from the many bathroom installation companies, because we are not trying to sell you a wet room, walk in shower or specialist bathroom. As part of our service we offer independent and unbiased advice on a wide range of equipment to help you make the right decisions.
You don’t normally need building regulations for adapting or converting an existing bathroom into an accessible bathroom, however if more major type works are being carried out like supporting walls being taken out, small extensions etc. then it is advisable to contact your local council for advice.
If you have any electrical work carried out such as a new electric shower, extractor, lights etc. this should be carried out by a certified electrician who can provide a certificate on completion of his work.
A realistic budget needs to set in line with your expectations for your new bathroom project. As part of the service, we can help you with this.
Over the 30 years I have worked in the industry, I have worked with numerous Occupational Therapists, Case Managers and Technical Officers, working off their schedules and recommendations.
Although I have designed many hundreds of accessible / disabled bathrooms for private households, the largest project would have been the Changing Places toilet facility and disabled toilets at Event City, which included height adjustable changing table, washer dryer toilet system, height adjustable was hand basin and hoisting system and Doc M packages.
