AIA Course: How to design commercial restrooms that work right
When you’ve got to go, you’ve got to go. But where? “The reality is that public restrooms matter to the public. The way a business or building treats its facilities is a reflection of its operating standards,” according to America’s Best Restroom program, sponsored by Cintas Facility Services, Cincinnati. A recent Cintas survey found that more than 75% of respondents said they simply wouldn’t return to a restaurant if the restrooms were not well kept. This free AIA/CES course from Building Design+Construction offers guidance and how-to advice on designing restrooms that will keep patrons coming back.
