Specifying Plumbing Fixtures for K-12 and Higher Education Facilities


Duration

1 Hour

About the Course

Restroom design for educational facilities has unique considerations, and further differences arise when planning for K-12 or higher education projects. Budget and maintenance are top concerns for both sectors, but building operators and designers must also deal with the simple reality that the majority of users are youth who may not be mature enough to properly care for these heavy traffic spaces. Sustainability and ADA compliance are also chief concerns in restroom design.


Learning Objectives:

1. Examine the factors that influence commercial restroom design for K-12 education facilities such as design, specification process, product preference for new construction vs. retrofits, water conservation and sustainability efforts.

2. Review the factors that influence commercial restroom design for higher education facilities such as design, specification process, product preference for new construction vs. retrofits, water conservation and sustainability efforts.

3. Identify how product selection of electronic sensors, low flow and dual flush toilets, retrofits for faucets and flushometers, as well as solar and turbine power contribute to water conservation for energy and cost savings.

4. Understand how compliance with ADA affects commercial restroom product selection for education facilities.
