The Caravan Club provides services and facilities for over 850,000 people, so it is a top priority to the organisation to ensure that everyone has full access to all the facilities on its 160 sites across the country.
Following a review of resources, Allan Wilkinson, Senior Development Manager for Estates at the Caravan Club, identified 11 sites that needed additional facilities to provide full access for people with disabilitiesSolution :
After meeting with two providers of toilet and washroom facilities, the Portaloo team was identified as best placed to provide the required facilities.
Allan Wilkinson said: "We needed to provide toilets and showers that would provide easy access for people with disabilities, particularly wheelchair users. We met with two providers, but the team from Portaloo had the best offering and expertise by far.
"The Portaloo disabled person’s toilet and shower buildings provide quality interim facilities suitable for our needs. The fact that Portaloo is such a well-established company with a good geographical spread gave us complete peace-of-mind, as the sites we required the toilets and showers for ranged from John O’Groats to Cornwall."
The purpose-built toilet and shower buildings provided by Portaloo include a single pedestal, allowing plenty of room for wheelchair manoeuvring, grab handles around the hand basin and pedestal, as well as a raised toilet seat for easy transfer from wheelchairs, and a low level door threshold for easy access.
Each building was delivered and installed by a team of highly experienced professionals, allowing the facilities to be ready for use within hours.
Allan continued: "The service we’ve received from the team at Portaloo has been excellent. They have provided the facilities we wanted to a standard which has attracted praise from members."
