Changing Places (12m²) and ‘Space to Change (7.5m²)’ In-build Options
Danfo offers an ‘In-build’ solution to providing Changing Places and ‘Space to Change’ rooms within an existing building.
Facilities designed to assist
These facilities are designed to assist those with profound and multiple disabilities who require adult carers, who require additional support and often need extra facilities to allow them to use a toilet comfortably.
Solution within an existing building
A Changing Places facility has an internal space of 4m x 3m is required. Danfo can create this space within an existing building and will install all equipment according to guidance issued by the ‘Changing Places Organisation’. All buildings come with technical specification of the equipment used. If new walls, floor, ceiling and doors are required we can do this to.

‘Space to change’ facilities
‘Space to change’ facilities can also be created within an existing building where 12m² rooms are not feasible due to space restrictions. These bridge the gap between a fully operating Changing Places facility and a standard Document M DDA compliant facility. The equipment of a Changing Places facility is installed within a 3m x 2.5m space to allow off the floor personal care.
