When designing washrooms you need to consider how many toilet cubicles and washbasins are required. For male facilities you may wish to consider whether urinals should be provided and if so, how many. The starting point is understanding the number of people who will use the facilities. A number of regulations, standards and best practice documents exist to provide guidance. For example, in places of work the primary document is The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992.
Delta Laminates prepare all designs in full compliance with the latest legislation and standards. To help you understand the requirements we provide below a helpful, simplified guide. We have based this upon BS 6465 Sanitary Installations*, which provides more detail than The Workplace Regulations. In all cases provision must be made for persons with disabilities. More details are provided in The Building Regulations Approved Document M: Access to and use of buildings. You can view these regulations on the gov.uk website here.
(* BS 6465-1:2006 + A1:2009 Sanitary installations – Part 1: Code of practice for the design of sanitary facilities and scales of provision of sanitary and associated appliances.)
