The Crack - Brisbane International Airport has first class seats... in the loo30 April 2017
Brisbane International Airport should be flushed with pride after being crowned the best public toilet in the land, even beating the ritzy surrounds of a luxury hotel.
The Queensland airport won ‘the Total Facilities’ annual award for the “best bathroom facility” for its state-of-the-art wash basins, urinals, hand-dryers and touchscreen technology. The award-winning bathroom also displays stunning photography showcasing the state’s rich landscapes and enticing beaches.
Krishan Tangri, Brisbane Airport Corporation’s General Manager Assets, said the toilets created “the all-important first impression of our city, state and country”.
“When international travellers set foot in one of our newly refurbished bathrooms, they’re taken on an aspirational journey around Australia — before they’ve even left the airport,” he said.
Now in its third year, the Best Bathroom Facility competition is in place to advocate washroom wellbeing.
“A grotty restroom environment can make or break a company’s reputation,” says Total Facilities’ Event Manager, Andrew Lawson. “Our awards were established to encourage awareness and pride among Australia’s facilities and workplace management professionals. And they set a great precedent.”
