Royal Visit to OpeMed Installation as The Queen Unveils Renovated National Army Museum

Her majesty the Queen delighted officials as she unveiled the newly renovated National Army Museum with brand new Changing Places facilities.

Her visit held a special personal significance for during her tour the Queen, who turns 91 next month, came face-to-face with the Army uniform she wore as a young princess during the Second World War.

The £23.75 million re-development project including £11.5 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has taken three years to complete. Undergoing a radical transformation to maximise access to, and engagement with, the Collection. One such addition to the renovation was the inclusion of a fully accessible Changing Places toilet.

Changing Places is a campaign designed to encourage facilities to provide better designed and equipped disabled bathrooms, catering for the diverse disabled community that struggle going anywhere without these vital facilities. The completion of the National Army museum Changing Places (soon to be fully registered) marks another important moment for the Changing Places campaign, as recognition for these important facilities grow and begin to be more and more considered for projects such as this.

The fully compliant National Army Museum Changing Places included the OT200 Compact Ceiling Hoist with unique gravity powered charging, a Height Adjustable Changing Table, a Height Adjustable Washbasin and a number of other essential items. We are delighted to have been involved in this project and proud to have had Her Majesty officially open the National Army Museum to visitors.
