Having successfully delivered a modular Changing Places toilet at Shorne Woods country park back in Summer 2021, the RISE team were delighted to be awarded Kent County Council’s tender to install two more modular facilities at Brockhill and Lullingstone country parks.
Brockhill and Lullingstone are two of nine beautiful parks that Kent has to offer — Brockhill, popular for its geocaching locations and abundance of wildlife, and Lullingstone renowned for its collection of ancient trees and beautiful wildflower displays. Within a seven-week period, we helped the council to enhance accessibility at both parks, with the turnkey delivery of two new high-spec Changing Places.
With two parks to support, it was crucial that all works were programmed seamlessly across both sites to deliver and commission final products on time.
Works started within days of being awarded the tender, utilising the steel superstructures that we hold in stock at our Doncaster premises. Standard RISE CP Pods were installed at both sites, though external materials were tailored to be more in keeping with surrounding buildings, including the installation of sweet chestnut shiplap cladding and black roofline plastics.
Groundworks were staggered, completing all required excavation, services, foundations, and reinstatement works at Lullingstone before moving on to Brockhill.
Both pods were built in-full at our Doncaster premises within five-weeks and feature 12m2 floorspace, 2.4m ceiling height, premium equipment throughout, and everything necessary to register as a Changing Places.
The pods were delivered in week six, and whilst access was tight, contract lifts were possible via hiab at both parks, avoiding the need for additional cranes onsite.
Following the installation of both modular Changing Places toilets, services were commissioned, minor snags were rectified, and the facilities were handed over. As per our originally proposed programme, all works were complete within 7-weeks — from initial instruction to handover.
Both facilities were quickly registered with the Changing Places Consortium, and have received amazing feedback from the general public since opening in July 2022. The local Kent community have been vocal in their understanding of the importance of these facilities and the difference they make to the families that need them.
Various surveys have shown that country parks and open spaces are the number one area where people most want to see new Changing Places facilities. This demand is being addressed by Kent County Council, and we’re extremely proud to have supported their initiative with the successful installation of three modular Changing Places in Kent (and counting).
Working as principal contractor, we provided the following scope of works:
