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.
