 MISSISSAUGA, Ontario — Aug. 5, 2021 —Cintas Canada, Ltd. is proud to announce that Borden Park in Edmonton, Alberta, is the winner of the 2021 Canada’s Best Restroom contest!

The washroom features hands-free elements to reduce germs and a stainless-steel trough-style sink that prevents water splashing on the floor. The sleek washroom stands as a striking improvement on the typical concrete options, and a sign of outstanding design to come.

“Public washrooms play an important role for people who are on the go, but this contest proves not all facilities are created equal,” said Candice Raynsford, Marketing Manager, Cintas Canada. “Borden Park prioritized providing a clean and inviting washroom, and the public showed their appreciation by voting them Canada’s Best Restroom.”

Cintas Canada dévoile les cinq finalistes du concours des Meilleures toilettes du Canada, édition 2021

La période de scrutin est ouverte jusqu’au 9 juillet

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — 7 juin 2021 — Cintas Canada, Ltée invite le public à voter pour l’un des cinq finalistes de l’édition 2021 du concours des Meilleures toilettes du Canada! Il est maintenant temps de voter jusqu’au 9 juillet à l’adresse www.www.www.www.bestrestroom.com/cafrench. L’établissement qui recueillera le plus de votes recevra des services aux établissements de Cintas pour une valeur de 2 500 $ pour l’aider à entretenir ses toilettes primées.

Le concours national de Cintas met en valeur des entreprises qui ont investi dans la construction et l’entretien de salles de toilettes exceptionnelles. « Ces cinq établissements font preuve d’un engagement à prioriser l’hygiène et le service à la clientèle, particulièrement en ce moment où la propreté est si importante, et y ajoutent créativité et fantaisie, ce qu’on ne voit pas habituellement dans les toilettes », a déclaré Candice Raynsford, directrice du marketing de Cintas Canada.

Les candidats de cette année seront jugés en fonction de cinq critères : propreté, attrait visuel, innovation, fonctionnalité et éléments de design originaux. Voici les cinq finalistes :

  1. Zoo de Toronto – Toronto, ON

Conçues dans l’esprit de la mission du Zoo de Toronto, qui consiste à mettre en relation les gens, les animaux et la science de la conservation pour lutter contre l’extinction, les nouvelles toilettes de la Tundra Trek du Zoo mettent en scène des espèces canadiennes emblématiques. Le design s’inspire de notre monde naturel pour créer une atmosphère novatrice mais familière. Des murs en mosaïque d’un bleu apaisant qui assure une transition en douceur entre l’horizon et le ciel, jusqu’aux éléments sombres et spectaculaires en hauteur qui représentent le vaste ciel nocturne de la toundra, aucun détail n’est omis. Chaque bloc de lavage des mains comprend un robinet, un distributeur de savon et un sèche-mains sans contact. L’évier en forme d’auge évite les éclaboussures d’eau sur le sol et des crochets sur le pourtour du comptoir permettent d’accrocher un sac à main, un sac à dos ou un manteau. Cette installation ultramoderne rehausse l’expérience des visiteurs du Zoo de Toronto d’une manière étonnante sur le plan visuel.

  1. Surrey Park – Surrey, C.-B.

L’objectif des toilettes du parc était de créer une installation ludique, durable et sécuritaire qui s’intègre bien dans le contexte des parcs de la ville de Surrey. Les toilettes ont été conçues pour être accessibles à tous, pour éviter tout contact avec les mains et pour fonctionner à l’énergie solaire. Elles comportent également des panneaux d’art public sur les quatre côtés de la structure. Le design emprunte une forme distincte, ose des couleurs vives et fait une utilisation originale des matériaux.

  1. Station-service Esso Sweet Market – Red Deer, AB

Les toilettes d’Esso Sweet Market s’enorgueillissent de carreaux décoratifs haut de gamme et de finis cinq étoiles, ce qui leur confère une classe certaine et les fait ressembler à une suite d’hôtel chic en Italie plutôt qu’à des toilettes de dépanneur. Ces toilettes sont un sujet de conversation permanent pour les clients du commerce dans lequel les selfies prennent le devant de la scène. Les commentaires intarissables sur l’émerveillement qu’elles suscitent – et sur leur extrême propreté – sont autant de rappels de l’élégance et de la magnificence authentiques de ces toilettes pour le client.

  1. The ROOFTOP – Calgary, AB

Le restaurant ROOFTOP est un patio extérieur original, évolutif en fonction de la météo, situé dans le centre-ville de Calgary. Les toilettes intérieures adjacentes ont été pensées pour être inclusives, attrayantes et uniques en leur genre. Lorsque vous pénétrez dans « The Alley », vous êtes accueilli par un personnage à la tête branlante grandeur nature, réinventé pour devenir votre concierge personnel. Pénétrez à l’intérieur pour vous immerger dans les suites de papier peint au style graffiti cool et amusant, largement inspiré du « Mur de la paix de John Lennon », créé à l’origine à Prague. Les éléments de surprise abondent dans ces toilettes inhabituelles, notamment la porte style toilettes portatives dans la zone « Mostly Men » et les murs dissimulés pour les selfies.

  1. Borden Park – Edmonton, AB

Conçues par gh3, les toilettes sont au cœur du pavillon à un seul niveau, ceinturé de verre hautement réfléchissant. Une approche intégrée de la durabilité environnementale apparaît avec évidence dans le choix des matériaux : le bois, le béton et le verre ont été sélectionnés pour leur durabilité, leur permanence et leur intemporalité. Les toilettes sont équipées d’éléments mains libres pour réduire les germes et d’un évier en acier inoxydable en forme d’auge qui permet d’éviter les éclaboussures d’eau sur le sol. Ces élégantes toilettes représentent une amélioration notoire par rapport aux options traditionnelles en béton et sont le signe d’une conception exceptionnelle à venir.

Cintas Canada Unveils Five Finalists in the 2021 Canada’s Best Restroom Contest

Cintas Canada Unveils Five Finalists in the 2021 Canada’s Best Restroom Contest

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — June 7, 2021 —Cintas Canada, Ltd. invites the public to vote for the five finalists in the 2021 Canada’s Best Restroom contest! The polls are open now through July 9 at www.www.www.www.bestrestroom.com/Canada. The facility that receives the most votes will win $2,500 in facility services from Cintas to help maintain their award-winning washrooms.

Cintas’ nationwide contest highlights businesses that have invested in developing and maintaining exceptional washrooms. “These five facilities demonstrate a commitment to prioritizing hygiene and customer service – especially as cleanliness is so important right now – combined with creativity and whimsy not usually seen in washrooms,” said Candice Raynsford, Marketing Manager, Cintas Canada.

Nominees for this year’s contest were judged on five criteria: cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements. The five finalists include:

  1. Toronto Zoo – Toronto, ON

Designed with the Toronto Zoo’s mission of connecting people, animals and conservation science to fight extinction in mind, the new washrooms in the Zoo’s Tundra Trek feature iconic Canadian species. The design draws on inspiration from our natural world for its fresh yet familiar atmosphere. From the cool blue mosaic walls that represent the calm transition of horizon to sky, to the dark and dramatic overhead features that represent the vast night sky across the tundra, no detail is too small. Each handwashing unit features a hands-free faucet, soap dispenser and hand dryer. The trough-style sink eliminates water splashing on the floor and includes hooks on the outside of the counter to hang a purse, backpack or coat. This state-of-the-art facility modernizes the Toronto Zoo’s guest experience in a visually stunning way.

  1. Surrey Park – Surrey, BC

The intent for the park washroom was to create a playful, durable, safe facility that works well within the City of Surrey’s park contexts. The washroom was designed to be universally accessible, hands-free with no-touch fixtures and configured for solar power. It also features public art panels on all four sides of the structure. The design employs a distinct form, strong colours and unique use of materials.

  1. Sweet Market Esso Station – Red Deer, AB

The washrooms at Sweet Market Esso boast decorative high-end tiles and five-star finishes, giving the restrooms a classy feel, mimicking a fancy hotel suite in Italy rather than a convenience store restroom. These washrooms are always a topic of customer conversation in the store where selfies take center stage. The constant comments regarding the awe of it all – plus the extreme cleanliness – are great reminders of the sheer elegance and grandeur these restrooms provide for the customer.

  1. The ROOFTOP – Calgary, AB

The ROOFTOP restaurant is a unique “weather managed” outdoor patio experience located in downtown Calgary. The adjacent indoor washrooms were designed to be inclusive, engaging and distinctively unique. As you enter “The Alley” you are greeted by a life-sized bobblehead re-imagined as your personal concierge. Walk in to immerse yourself in the funky and fun graffiti wallpaper sections taken largely from the “John Lennon Peace Wall” originally created in Prague. Elements of surprise abound throughout these unusual washrooms, including the porta-potty door in the “Mostly Men” area and hidden selfie walls.

  1. Borden Park – Edmonton, AB

Designed by gh3, the washrooms are at the core of the single-level pavilion surrounded by highly reflective glass. An integrated approach to environmental sustainability is evident in the choice of materials: wood, concrete and glass were selected for their durability, permanence and timelessness. The washroom features hands-free elements to reduce germs and a stainless-steel trough-style sink that prevents water splashing on the floor. The sleek washroom stands as a striking improvement on the typical concrete options, and a sign of outstanding design to come.
