Manchester Museum, part of the University of Manchester, has recently undergone a partial renovation program that includes a mulit-faith prayer room. Wudu foot wash troughs were required to complete the necessary facilities.

Architects, Wilson Mason were charged with designing and overseeing the works that were carried out by, contractor, Warden Construction. GEC Anderson were specified to provide two purpose made foot wash troughs in stainless steel. One single user and one two user trough were required and were included within a very confined space.

The design of the troughs was completely bespoke and stainless steel was the material of choice. GEC Anderson were able to provide the solution that is both highly practical but also completely practical and durable. The ergonomic requirements were important and the flexibility of custom stainless steel allowed for the creation of the special troughs to suit the precisely prescribed design. Each trough includes its own, trapped, gully to promote rapid discharge of water.
