DAC IS PROUD OF THE advanced lavatory design developed for the MD-95 in association with Jamco. "Using concurrent design and engineering techniques, we've been able to provide much more lav for the money," comments MD-95 programme management interiors IPT project manager, Terry Watson.

"This lavatory looks more like something you would find at home instead of in an aircraft," says twinjet industrial-design and interior-design director Billie Hendrixson. The conventional chrome surfaces, for example, are replaced by a stone look-alike counter top.

"We will also have a baby-changing table as a standard amenity and wall-mounted faucets," says Hendrixson, who adds that the design initiatives involved in the lavatory area are typical of the approach taken for the whole interior. "We've been learning to do more with less," she says.
