Designed to enhance the fan experience, all 40 restrooms at this new state-of the-art soccer stadium kick the ball out of the park.
In July 2018, Audi Field became the official new home of Major League Soccer's most decorated club, D.C. United, located in the heart of Washington, DC. This impressive 20,000 seat capacity stadium houses 40 restrooms that are used by fans, players, officials and staff. The general contractor, Regional Contracting Services in Washington, DC, worked with the design team at Populous to create restrooms that accommodate high traffic and large crowds while elevating aesthetics, simplifying maintenance and reinforcing a positive fan experience.
According to Bradley’s Healthy Hand Washing Survey, 89% of Americans expect a high-quality business to also have a high-quality restroom. Understanding this dynamic, Audi Field’s design team knew that high-quality restroom fixtures would support a first-rate fan experience. Knowing that resiliency and well-maintained restrooms are key factors, Bradley's line of Bradmar plastic restroom partitions and stainless steel washroom accessories stood out as perfect choices for furninshing the public restrooms, and locker rooms and washrooms for the players and officials.
Audi Field installed more than 300 Bradmar toilet partitions, 100 urinal screens and 1,500 stainless steel accessories (grab bars, waste receptacles, seat cover dispensers, paper towel/ waste receptacles, napkin disposals, soap dishes, mirrors and towel hooks).
Bradmar partitions are fabricated from an advanced formula of solid, one-inch thick HDPE (high density polyethylene) plastic that won't rust, delaminate, mildew or absorb odors. Where additional privacy is needed, extra-height doors and panels are available as well as a NoSite option with an integral hinge system that eliminates gaps between the doors and pilasters. Available with 100% pre-consumer recycled material, Bradmar partitions are also GREENGUARD Gold certified.
Bradley's sturdy washroom accessories, such as grab bars, have industry-leading load ratings that enhance balance and stability in restrooms and shower rooms for people of all sizes and abilities. Accessories such as paper towel/waste receptacles, mirrors and soap dishes add versatility, functionality, contemporary flair and refined finish to any style restroom with any budget.
“The overall design and aesthetic of Audi Field’s restrooms convey a distinctive statement of quality and cleanliness,” said Beverly L. Thomas, President and CEO, General Contracting Services. "Durability, reliability and maintainability were of utmost importance to the design team, and Bradley’s accessories and products have been exceptional choices."
