Summary: 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.

After reading this article, you should be able to: List the main factors affecting the design and operation of public restrooms; understand how the user population drives restroom design and product decisions, including the selection of restroom finishes and fixtures; describe three public health, safety, and welfare (HSW) considerations affecting restrooms; and explain how MEP systems and coordination affect restroom design and construction.

Note: This special AIA/CES class has been moved to BD+C's new continuing education website at http://www.bdcuniversity.com/course/overview.php?courseid=1412  (one-time registration required)
