The search is on to find Australia’s ‘king of thrones’ – the facilities manager with the loveliest loos in the land – with nominations open for the for the inaugural Australia’s Best Bathroom Facility awards. Presented by Total Facilities, facilities management professionals nationwide are invited to nominate their bathroom facility for the crown of Australia’s best bathroom.
‘Whether it’s a soothing scent, comfy seats, creative design or practical organisation, Total Facilities wants to find what makes a person skip to the loo,’ says the organiser.
Nominations are being received via the Total Facilities website where entrants are required to complete an entry form and submit photographic evidence of the nominated bathroom. Entrants must also ‘follow’ Total Facilities on Twitter to be eligible.
David Skilton, Total Facilities event manager, explains the awards had been established to encourage a sense of porcelain pride among Australia’s facilities management professionals and nominations are open to managers of both public and private bathroom facilities.
“How a business maintains its bathroom facilities can be a reflection of its commitment to employees, and customers,” he points out.
“If you believe the bathroom in your building or facility goes above and beyond in the design or cleanliness stakes then we’d love to hear from you.”
Entries are open until Tuesday March 10 and will be judged by a panel based on eligibility, style, the entry comments and cooperation with the process.
Five finalists will be announced on the Total Facilities Twitter on Friday March 13, before the winner is announced and crowned ‘Australia’s Best Bathroom Facility’ at an exclusive opening night cocktail reception on Wednesday 25 March 2015 at Total Facilities.
In the meantime, individuals can register to attend the Total Facilities exhibition for free, which is being held at Sydney Exhibition Centre, Glebe Island, from Wednesday March 25 to Thursday March 26.
