In the wake of COVID-19, people expect more from the facilities they use daily. Public spaces, especially restrooms and locker rooms, must be clean, hygienic, and accessible for everyone to use. Emphasizing public health should not require sacrificing sustainability or aesthetics. This one-hour presentation outlines practical short- and long-term solutions that design professionals can incorporate into restrooms, locker rooms, and other public spaces to ensure safety for both end users and the environment. Attendees will also learn how restroom and locker room design can help contribute to projects seeking certification with WELL v.1 and LEED v.4, including USGBC’s new Safety-First Pilot Credits. By utilizing sustainable and aesthetic designs, professionals can ensure that visitors and occupants can safely enjoy public spaces for years to come.
