Scott Residential Home


Avocet Place, a new build residential development by family run housebuilder and developer, Scott Residential, is a unique collection of 45 individually designed bungalows based in a scenic, rural location in Colchester, Essex. To ensure it could accommodate the demands of multigenerational living, a reliable and flexible showering solution was required. Taking this into consideration Scott’s chose Triton Omnicare Design Thermostatic Electric Shower for their adaptations works.

“Our mission is to go above and beyond to deliver residential properties that are at the height of luxury. To achieve this, it’s key that we fit products which not only maximise performance and reliability, but also meet the unique needs of our buyers. To ensure this happens, we consult with various industry experts to make sure all products selected are the perfect fit.”

“Everyday necessities, such as showering, are a priority, and although aesthetics play a key role in the selection of products, it’s also essential that the experience is as safe as possible. Our installer was instrumental in the selection of our showers, basin taps and bath fillers, and as Triton is an established name within the industry, we knew we were choosing a reliable option. Working with a recognised brand offers complete reassurance that the products will be of a high standard and will do the job for all ages first time round, while also providing ease of installation, removing the potential for any issues or additional costs on the job.”

With a focus on traditional building methods and a commitment to exceeding expectations, Scott Residential communicates with the customer to ensure they are involved at the early stages and are aware of any developments throughout the project. This enables them to have a direct influence on the design of their property and the products selected.

Steve continued: “It’s really important that we listen to those who will be living in the properties as we are designing them specifically for the end user’s needs. By ensuring these homes include premium products with state-of-the-art technology, we can accommodate for a wide range of resident requirements, ensuring they don’t have to compromise style over safety.”

With the shift in household demographics, such as the younger generation opting to live at home for longer and the elderly increasingly moving back in with their adult children, Scott Residential wanted to ensure its bungalows at Avocet Place catered for all. Steve concluded: “We’re seeing more people downsizing as they grow older, but we also recognise that households are made up of people of all ages. By working with brands we can trust, and selecting quality products, such as the Dene range from Triton, we are able to meet the needs of the entire family.” -

How to make bathrooms fit for purpose for all generations

We have created a safety blueprint guide which considers the movement towards multi-generational living in the UK, and explores the key elements of bathroom safety. It outlines the most important factors for those responsible with taking an ‘end-user first’ approach to bathroom and shower specification, providing a framework for the kind of practical steps that occupational therapists, supply chain, maintenance and contracts managers can take.

What the guide covers

  • Social housing supply and demand
  • The UKs demographic shift
  • Introducing the PASA test – our unique tool to help shower specification
  • Insight from a leading Occupational Therapist
  • Key elements of the safe bathroom
  • And much more!
