A holistic approach to best use of resources in education

A local education authority is optimising best value in a major capital building programme, right through to pupil intimate care.

Dundee City Council is undertaking a £350million investment plan including regeneration of the waterfront, affordable housing and new schools.

The latest project – construction of the new North East Campus – features a Closomat Palma Vita shower (wash & dry) toilet with height adjustable washbasin and ceiling track hoist.

Looking like, and capable of being used as a conventional WC, the Closomat Palma Vita has integrated douching and drying. As a result, all pupils, irrespective of ability, can rely on the Closomat to clean them efficiently and consistently.

The provision of a hoist means should pupils need help to transfer from a wheelchair, this can be done safely and securely for them, and support staff. The height adjustable washbasin enables all users to comfortably clean their hands, whether ambulant or in a wheelchair.
