Estimated equipment costs for a Changing Places toilet can vary but are in the region of between £12,000 - £17,000 including VAT. However, equipment costs will vary depending on the specific equipment chosen.

We are not able to estimate a total cost for the whole Changing Places toilet because other costs involved will vary depending on the venue.

For example:

  • building costs if structural changes need to be made to an existing building
  • maintenance costs
  • security costs.

It is cheaper to include Changing Places toilets at the planning and design stage as this will remove the need for structural changes to an existing building.
