At first glance: Premium portable washroom units
are different from the typical porta potty as they have porcelain
flush toilets and running water to provide a sanitary solution
to keep employees healthy.
They are made of steel, not plastic; they can be heated so they
do not freeze up in winter use. They are self-contained units
with male and female sides each with a flush toilet, sink, auto
shut off facets, mirror and high output ventilation.
The setup is quick and straight forward.
portable washrooms help improve productivity, health & safety,
servicing, loyalty and morale.
How often do people leave the job site to use the washroom at
a fast food restaurant? Time is money, when people leave to
use the toilet it is not an efficient use of well paid crews
(please see below for cost estimate).
C) Health and Safety:
Need to provide a sanitary solution, when people choose not
to use the plastic washrooms, safety can be sacrificed. As well,
people spread germs with unsanitary plastic washrooms which
can increase sick days.
Servicing: Plastic portable washrooms have a
very small sewage holding capacity. The ratio of servicing plastic
portable washrooms to premium portable washrooms is 6:1. Our
waste holding tank is 350 gallons, 6 times the size as the plastic
portable washrooms resulting in substantially fewer sewage removals.
E) Loyalty: Your
employees will notice the step up on the washrooms provided
and they will want to stick with you as an employer
Morale: Happy people are productive people.
No question, your crews will be happy with your decision to
provide a suitable washroom facility. Productivity will improve
to assist in finishing the job on time and on budget
people even use the plastic washrooms on sites? Time away from
site = Money, productivity and deadlines are sacrificed.

Morale + Requirement/Demand
recent client of ours, Devitt & Forand was required by their
client (CO-OP), and its union to provide suitable washroom facilities.
The plastic portables would not suffice in this situation.
superintendent had the following feedback:
crew really appreciated the warm washrooms and being able to
wash their hands with water. It really made them happy. The
washrooms were easy to keep clean since they were warm and didn't
freeze up. The septic tank was much larger than the plastic
washrooms we’ve used in the past so we didn’t need
to have them serviced near as often. This ended up saving us
money. They are also ideal for moving around a job site, it
makes life a lot easier. I hope to rent these again for our
projects coming up.”
