Our team and culture behind business excellence

Focus Washrooms was founded over 20 years ago by Senior Director, David Davis in Hertfordshire.

David identified the need to improve washrooms in educational and commercial settings across the UK and so the journey began. Now we’re proud to have a team of over 40 people based across two sites – our cubicle production facility in Dereham, Norfolk and our second site in Welham Green.


What sets Focus Washrooms apart is the integrity and dedication of our team. Our approach that is based on a wealth of experience means we can plan projects effectively, stay true to the brief and can guarantee that we complete projects on time and within budget.

Working with many market sectors, our clients can be confident that they’ll receive dedicated and relevant customer care. We’ve been designing, making and installing washrooms for over two decades and during this time, we’ve developed a deep understanding of the demands of every industry that we serve, and the ability to develop solutions that exceed the expectations of our clients. Take a look at some of the projects we’ve worked on.


From our humble beginnings back in 1998, we remain a family oriented business but over the years our team has grown and our services have diversified. We pride ourselves on giving our valued team the opportunities to grow and develop and offer genuine career progression within the business. Meet our team.

Designing the perfect school washroom

When designing your school washrooms, there are many factors to consider including hygiene, safety, privacy and of course, design.

Throughout our 20 years of experience in designing washrooms in education settings, we know that by providing a bright, clean and fully functional space can actually help to reduce any bullying or vandalism.

Where to start?

If your washrooms are starting to look tired and in need of an update, don’t let them reflect badly on your school. Our team will guide you through the design and refurbishment process explaining each step. We’ll advise you on how many facilities you need per pupil, we’ll ensure that your new washrooms meet strict UK government requirements and we’ll also support you in passing your Ofsted inspections when it comes to the set washroom criteria. Designing the perfect washroom for you
For younger children, we have the K2:12:  a range of washroom furniture featuring vivid designs, robust fittings and a choice of height options helping to encourage both hygiene and imagination.For older children and adults, the S3:60 gives a stunning finish coupled with outstanding strength, requiring minimal ongoing maintenance. And our T1:90 range offers the privacy and respect required in a washroom environment.

Colours and finishes

All of our products are made to order so you simply choose options to suit your requirements including the panel and door heights, wash stations, duct panels, sanitaryware and mirrors. We offer a huge range of colour schemes and finishes from muted and pastel shades to bright and vibrant colourways, plus we offer printed illustrations and picture prints to engage with younger children.

You’re in safe hands

We’ve developed a tried and tested approach to ensure that your project will run on time and on budget. Every phase is planned from when we carry out our first survey, to risk assessments, project plans through to completion. We’re so confident that this process works that we’ll provide you with a guaranteed completion date.

In the last year, we’ve refurbished over 200 washrooms, and we’d love to help you with your next project.  If you’re considering refurbishing your school washrooms, get in touch on 01707 254170 today.
