Central Park in Boston is one of the focal points of the town where many people and families enjoy the open space. The park includes bird aviary, children’s play area, skate park, café and public toilets, and now thanks to funding from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC), it also features a new modular Changing Places toilet (CPT), making the space accessible to all.
Following a tender submission for multiple modular CPTs, Boston Borough Council awarded RISE with the contract based on price and quality.
Specifications were finalised and long-lead items were ordered, including a custom brick-slip finish – selected to closely match the pod exterior to its surroundings.
Once construction works were underway at our Doncaster premises, the Central Park CPT was quickly erected and fitted-out to our usual high-specification. The robust structure provides exceptional thermal and acoustic performance, whilst inside, the fully compliant layout features market leading healthcare equipment to enhance user and carer experience.
Adrian Sibley, Deputy Chief Executive (Programme Delivery) at East Lindsey District Council had high praise for the CPT:
“The new facility is excellent. You can look around and see for yourself – it looks brilliant!”
As the UK’s leading Changing Places contractor, we provide a safe pair of hands for local authorities and other organisations looking to fully contract their CPT project. That’s true across every aspect of our service, including the delivery and contract lift of our modular facilities – overseen by our in-house management team (including ‘appointed person’).
Following the successful pod delivery and installation onto newly installed groundworks at Central Park, services were connected, and the pod was commissioned prior to handing over to the client and re-opening the site to the public.
Boston Borough council held an opening event at Central Park, inviting residents and councillors alike. Marlene Fullwood, mother of Joe, local wheelchair user who officially opened the facility, said:
“Having these facilities in the town is going to make our lives so much easier, it’s nice to have somewhere we can go that is clean and safe and the space is just fantastic. We look forward to visiting the town more often now and being able to stay longer than before.”
The successful project at Central Park is the first of four facilities that RISE has the privilege of installing for Boston Borough Council, and forms part of the wider DLUHC Changing Places programme.
“This forms part of a national roll-out, and I’m fully in favour of this,” concludes Adrian. “This has the opportunity to change so many people’s lives.”
