RAS awards first six-star washrooms to The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands
The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands is first to be awarded the six-star rating for adopting smart washroom solutions, reports the Restroom Association Singapore.
The luxury mall is the first and only establishment in Singapore to be accredited six stars for six (male and female) of its newly revamped washrooms after undergoing an audit conducted by the RAS.
The mall plans to upgrade the rest of its 30 five-star washrooms progressively. The six-star rating is the top rating which was introduced in November 2014.
The six-star rating is due for renewal on an annual basis. Apart from meeting excellent service and cleanliness requirements, all cleaning attendants will need to be certified with the Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) in washroom cleaning, for the facility to be able to qualify.
Six-star washrooms will also need to adopt smart solutions that will increase productivity and efficiency, through the use of automated feedback and cleaning systems. The Shoppes at MBS adopted the holistic Detect Feedback Eliminate Save (DFES) Smart Restroom Solutions namely detecting with sensors, receiving feedback via an intuitive system, eliminating with ozone water system and saving with green hand dryers and waterless urinals.
The DFES Smart Restroom Solutions is a joint initiative by five partners of the RAS namely Adsec Global, Aqua Tech, Convergent Smart Technologies, Infinergy Systems Solutions and Viso.
