Edmonton bathroom named among the finest within the nation (PHOTOS)
It’s the contest you never knew you had to enter – Canada’s best toilet is back for 2021, and voting for the statewide contest is officially open until July 9th.
This annual list is run by Cintas Canada Ltd and aims to spotlight washrooms across the country that have that little something.
For another year, the Canadian public has nominated “elegant, eclectic or downright bizarre” non-residential bathrooms that are “inviting” and “memorable”.
From this shortlist, Canadians are asked to vote for their favorite. The assessment should be based on cleanliness, appearance, innovation, functionality and unique design elements.
The winner will receive a Cintas UltraClean toilet cleaning service and $ 2,500 in Facility Services from Cintas to help maintain their award-winning washrooms.
One toilet in Edmonton is shortlisted, and the lucky facility is in Borden Park.
If the best bathroom is one that you can’t see at all, then the toilet in this YEG park might win the award.
The Borden Park Pavilion washroom building designed by gh3 is made of highly reflective glass that makes it almost invisible in daylight. The facility is illuminated from the inside and is visible in the dark, so that the bathroom is also sought at night.
According to a press release from Cintas, designers have taken an integrated approach to environmental sustainability that is evident in the choice of materials. The structure is made of wood, concrete and glass, chosen for their durability, resistance and timelessness.
“The simple washroom is a significant improvement on the typical concrete options and a sign of outstanding design,” says the press release.
This Edmonton toilet has speakerphone features to reduce germs and a stainless steel tub to keep water from splashing on the floor.
