The Loo of the Year Awards inspection team is now completing the inspection of thousands of 2018 Loo of the Year Awards entrant washrooms throughout the UK, including many new entrants. The team is travelling thousands of miles by road, boat and aircraft and will have visited hundreds of towns and cities while inspecting every category of ‘away from home washrooms’.
The inspection criteria is based on fitness for purpose from the user’s perspective. Are the washrooms clean? Do they provide all the facilities that users will require? Do they meet Building Regulations Doc M and Equality Act dimensions and the needs of users that require accessible toilets or Changing Places facilities? Do they provide adequate facilities for babies and children? Are they attractive - light, inviting and have the ‘wow’ factor.
Judging for the range of national and UK/Ireland awards and trophies will be completed during October and the results will be announced at the Loo of the Year Awards day time event on Friday 7 December at the St Johns Hotel, Solihull.
Mike Bone, managing director of the Loo of the Year Awards, said: “The prestigious event includes excellent hospitality, a washroom supplier’s exhibition, top class entertainment, and unrivalled networking opportunities among leading cleaning and FM service providers and their key customers. A leading must-attend event in the cleaning and FM calendar.”
