The objective of this project is to analyze construction jobsite facilities, specifically portable restroom facilities, and brainstorm how they can be redesigned to better suit the needs of women and individuals working on site. Portable toilets endure a great amount of weathering throughout the duration of the project and can become extremely unsanitary and often riddled with profanity. This can create an unclean and unwelcoming environment, especially for women working on the jobsite. The purpose of this project is to create a discussion around jobsite safety, starting with portable toilets. This is done using construction technology. Virtual reality was used to transform individuals into spaces showcasing unsanitary portable restrooms to incite a reaction. SketchUp was then used to model the ideal portable restroom and space for workers on site. Various SketchUp designs were created and analyzed to showcase the change that should be made to provide a better restroom experience. The overall impact of this project is to bring awareness to the issues surrounding sanitation and women’s safety on the jobsite and to inspire members of general contractors to take a stand for better facilities on site.
