MODULE OUTLINE: This module highlights technical and aesthetic design considerations for commercial washrooms. The importance of providing access to public washrooms for the one in five Australian’s living with some type of disability is reflected in the current Australian Standards for disabled access and mobility, and their adoption as deemed-to-satisfy provisions in the Building Code of Australia (BCA). The module reviews design aspects, sustainability concerns, safety issues and access issues. It assesses toilet partition components, washroom accessories and selected material options accounting for compliance, hygiene and maintenance concerns.
