RESTROOM STRUCTURES & BUILDINGS
The Tampa, Fla., Parks & Recreation Department installed its first prefabricated "Cracker Architectural Style" Public Restroom Building in Cypress Park on May 13. This structure was 95 percent constructed off-site, then delivered to the site and installed in just five working days. The "green design" 50-year useful life design reduces maintenance, provides greater safety to the public and introduces a new concept in public restrooms: no odor-absorbent surfaces. This proprietary building system by The Public Restroom Company reduced the city’s first cost by almost 30 percent over site-constructed alternatives. Architecture does not have to be sacrificed to obtain lower restroom building costs.

Waste Not, Want Not
Since 1973, Clivus Multrum systems have been protecting and conserving natural resources in facilities worldwide. At the Bronx Zoo’s Eco-Restroom, Clivus Multrum Foam-Flush Composting Toilet Systems reduce water used for flushing by over 97 percent, as compared to conventional 1.6 gpf toilets. The Foam-Flush toilets use only 3 to 6 ounces of water to flush waste down a 4-inch drain line to the composters. There, solid and liquid waste are separated and transformed through natural processes into a solid compost and liquid fertilizer. And because the Eco-Restroom also uses a Clivus Multrum Greywater Irrigation System, all the building’s waste can be managed sustainably, onsite.
