Thought leaders from across the architecture, design, education, engineering and plumbing industries have come together to discuss the future of washroom design in a white paper. Washroom Design for Tomorrow, from leading washroom manufacturer Ideal Standard and Armitage Shanks, features a wealth of insights and expertise from nine industry-leading voices. Discussing key topics within the washroom sector, the report covers a range of themes from the growing importance of the circular economy and sustainability, making washrooms accessible to all, and the necessary changes to promote comfort, durability and hygiene within these spaces.
Speaking on the whitepaper, Anil Madan, non-residential marketing manager at Ideal Standard and Armitage Shanks, said: “The washroom sector is in a period of transition, with greater scrutiny on making these spaces as well-designed as possible. Sustainability is, of course, central to the development of both new washrooms and the products within them. But beyond this, there are also new rules and regulations to consider around accessibility, infection risk management and grey water, and how these factors can be properly incorporated into washroom solutions.
“By working with thought leaders from across a variety of industries, we were able to create a whitepaper that looks to the future of commercial washrooms, and identified the need for a more holistic approach to the design, specification and maintenance of these spaces. We’re thrilled to finally be able to unveil the finished report and thank all those who lent their voices to such a unique resource.”
