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 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 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.

L’engagement de Westview RV Park tout au long du concours a joué un rôle majeur dans l’obtention de votes pour l’entreprise. Le personnel du terrain de camping a sensibilisé sa clientèle par l’entremise de sa page de média social en plus de participer à plusieurs entrevues à la radio, à la télévision et dans les journaux. Cette promotion a incité de fiers membres du personnel et des clients attentionnés à voter par milliers en faveur du terrain de camping tout au long du concours.

Présenté par Cintas, le concours des Meilleures toilettes du Canada, qui en est maintenant à sa 11e édition, tourne les projecteurs sur les entreprises qui font un effort supplémentaire pour créer les toilettes les plus mémorables qui soient.

The 2020 America’s Best Restroom Finalists include:

AirTrain JFK’S Jamaica Station – New York, NY

The new, spacious restrooms at AirTrain JFK’s Jamaica Station are equipped with modern designs and are nearly three times as large as the previous restrooms, with wider stalls to account for travelers’ luggage.

In addition, the Port Authority has added a spacious family-friendly restroom to provide more options for those traveling with family members of all ages.

Bancroft Park – Colorado Springs, Colorado

Soap, water, toilet paper and a dryer are all activated with the wave of a hand. The restrooms are set up to self-clean after every 30 uses, and a park maintenance supervisor is alerted via an app when toilet paper or other supplies are running low.

DFW Airport – DFW Airport, Texas

The DFW Airport integrated smart restroom technology into all of its gate-side restrooms to include aesthetically pleasing fixtures, touch free dispensing, consumable tracking, and other smart restroom features, allowing staff to operate on demand, rather than a time-scheduled approach for making sure the bathrooms are cleaned and well stocked. Digital signage outside each restroom tells guests how many stalls are open, when cleaning is in progress, and indicator lights inside let them know which stalls are available. These features will help with social distancing efforts during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as well as data for the cleaning staff to efficiently manage increased cleaning protocols.

Gaslight Bar & Grill – Cincinnati, OH

The restrooms in Gaslight Bar & Grill are a mix of classic and new, like the restaurant and the former library in Clifton, OH. Classic Bianco Onion marble tile on the walls compliment the white/grey flower mosaic tile floor in the women’s restroom and the large scale dark gray stone floor tile in the men’s restroom. Copper flecked stone like sink counters, beveled glass mirrors, as well as gold wallpaper and wall sconce lights add sparkle. Contrasts of black iron details and custom wood partitions and doors provide classic world touches. Touchless faucets and trash cans are sleek and hygienic combining the best of modern and classic.

Kimpton Muse Hotel – New York City, New York

The bathrooms at the Kimpton Muse Hotel allow guests and diners at the adjacent Muse Bar to pick a stall according to their personality or mood. There are six “sin-inspired” unisex stalls, each with a different theme and jaw-dropping design scheme: Glam, Vain, Rebel, Passion, Macho, and Envy. Upon entering the white restroom area – meant to represent purgatory – each stall opens directly into a common lounge area designed accordingly to its name.

Portland Japanese Garden – Portland, Oregon

Portland Japanese Garden’s restroom strikes the perfect balance between practical and beautiful. Located in the Jordan Schnitzer Japanese Arts Learning Center, all materials in the bathroom – from the texture of the tiles to the design of the fixtures – were chosen for their standalone beauty, as well as functional works of art. These understated shaped and forms are aligned with the Japanese aesthetic of minimalism and with the qualities of a Japanese garden, which helps the mind and body feel serene and tranquil, even in the most vulnerable state of being.

The bathrooms located conveniently off the lobby space provide guests a clean and welcoming experience. The beautiful marble sink in both the men’s and women’s restroom have a stunning visual appeal. This coupled with the tastefully decorated lighting and mirror will welcome any smile.
