(NNT)-Suvarnabhumi Airport has joined hands with Siam Cement Public Company Limited (SCG) in their attempt to spruce up toilets inside the passenger terminal and make a long lasting impression on airport users. According to Suvarnabhumi Airport Director Wilaiwan Nadwilai, the assurance of toilet hygiene and their availability around the terminal building has always been among the priorities of the airport. 

To raise the image of service at Suvarnabhumi, SCG, which is a construction company, has designed an energy efficient model for toilets at the airport. Four architectural themes have been applied in the construction of toilets. They follow the company’s concept of ‘7 Wonders of Thailand’ which has been incorporated into the interior design of the toilets. 

Two designs on ‘River of Life’ and ‘Street Life’, have been completed. The rest are under way including Festival, Move Around, Happy Moment, Flower Market and Sea Sight. Interactive technology has been used in the creation, which gives toilet users different feelings when they enter the rooms to take care of personal businesses. 

Toilets for persons with disabilities and for parents looking for a place to change diapers for their babies have also been improved to provide easy access to users. 6 of them are available on the departure level while just one is added to the arrival floor. 117 more toilets will undergo transformation at Suvarnabhumi Airport, all of which will be completed by 2016.
