Branded restrooms now at SunTrust Park
It has never been more fun to go to a restroom at a ballpark,
Located on the main level, these unique women's and men's bathrooms include decorative murals that celebrate the American Standard products integrated with popular baseball imagery. The illustrations – which incorporate clever factoids about water use and the ballpark – were created by Midwest artist Adam Turman, whose bold style uniquely blends elements from both storied organizations.These branded restrooms exclusively feature American Standard toilets, urinals, sinks, faucets and showerheads, which were selected for their innovative technologies that deliver reliable operation with heavy use, while also saving water and energy costs. In addition, restrooms throughout the ballpark – on the general and club levels, plus employee locker rooms – showcase these same stylish, durable and water-efficient fixtures and faucets.
"Our goal in this exciting new partnership was to provide a more comfortable experience for the fans while helping the organization to save money through the durable and water-efficient commercial bathroom fixtures and faucets from American Standard," said Chris Brown, vice president of sales for LIXIL Americas, the division under which American Standard operates. "Our comprehensive commercial product offerings are built to withstand the high-traffic use they will receive in SunTrust Park for years to come, while providing high-style to this modern sports facility."
Designed to serve as the centerpiece of The Battery Atlanta™, a state-of-the-art new lifestyle district, SunTrust Park is surrounded by diverse entertainment experiences including restaurants, retail, theater, office, hotel and residential housing. The significantly increased foot traffic to the ballpark in its new and comfortable location required modern facilities that could keep up with this level of demand.
"SunTrust Park now accommodates traffic for more than 41,000 fans and our employees, so we needed public restroom fixtures designed to work flawlessly while holding up to the demands of public use," said Mike Plant, president and CEO of Braves development. "We chose American Standard because their plumbing fixtures and faucets are stylish and also meet the performance standards required for commercial restrooms, including sustainability, maximum hygiene and overall user comfort."
