Design and Site Surveys
A full and complete design service is available so we can help to plan your new Changing Places facility. We will advise on the best location for your facility and equipment which will involve site visits and planning meetings with the owners, Architects and sub-contractors. We know how important a new Changing Places facility is and that’s why we will commit to being on hand every single step of the way and ensure the BS8300:2009 requirements are met.
We are proud to have our own installation team with over 20 years of experience in fitting specialist products into a wide range of different, complex and challenging environments who cover the whole of the UK.
We offer complete service and warranty packages from 1 right up to 10 years and all servicing is completed by our dedicated expert in-house service team who will ensure that your facility and equipment you have purchased is maintained to the very highest standard.
Free training and repeat training to all key members of staff once the Changing Places facility is up and running is offered and if completely free of charge. This will give the owners complete piece of mind whilst enhancing the Changing Places facility experience for every single user.
Registration & Signage
Registration of your Changing Places is extremely important. Upon completion of your new accessible toilet facility we will visit to give everything a final check over in order to complete the registration forms on your behalf and submit to the official Changing Places register so you can be found when users search for local facilities. We also provide advice and design files for your Changing Places signage.
We will give advice on how best to incorporate Changing Places into your access statements and help to promote and endorse your new Changing Places facility. This is done via various media outlets including a range of appropriate social media sites, disability discussion forums, our website and the Changing Places site. At Astor-Bannerman, we're no stranger in getting Changing Places heard on the radio too! In addition, your new facility will be included in any future promotional literature and will provoke media coverage. Occasionally we have also arranged grand opening events which have greater attracted attention and raised awareness. Please let us know if this is something you would like us to assist with.
We work closely with many Changing Places supporters and industry professionals. To help bring supporters together and share knowledge and information we organise annual official Changing Places Conferences accross the country.
