Project Description

Lyceum Theatre

Lyceum Theatre, London

The Lyceum Theatre were looking into how they could speed up toilet cubicle usage during intermission times but also how they could reduce water and maintenance costs.

As a result of these initiatives Propelair were approached to look at how their toilet system might help with this. After a brief trial they decided to purchase 15 toilets and are looking at replacing their remaining toilets with the Propelair system. Replacing all public toilets (assumption: 60 toilets) could save around 8.5 million litres of water and over £18K annually.

As a result of this initiative the Lyceum has seen increased takings in the Bar and fewer people being late to take their seats after the intermission ends. They have also seen a significant reduction in water and maintenance issues. This has also been a success at other theatres such as the Peacock Theatre in London.
