Value Considerations for Remodels & Build-Outs: Making Dispenser Decisions  

Build-outs and remodeling projects offer numerous obvious opportunities to create and enhance business image. While there’s no shortage of advice on big picture architectural and interior design trends, it can be harder to find value-added suggestions for considerations on smaller, practical things, like dispensers for washrooms and food preparation areas. Georgia-Pacific Professional offers the following to help fill that gap.

Taking a New Look at "Old School" Basics

Whether your customers are starting a fresh build out or considering refurbishing washrooms, break rooms and foodservice areas, they have the opportunity to take a new look at “old school” basics for respite spots--washrooms, break rooms, and foodservice areas. Soap and sanitizer dispensers, bathroom towel and tissue dispensers have been evolving over the years and can enhance image and coordinate with décor.

Because washing hands and drying with a paper towel remains the best defense against germs, Georgia-Pacific Professional offers a full product line. It includes traditional takes on dispensers, towels, tissues, soaps and sanitizers as well as redesigned and innovative products with stylish new opportunities for cost-in-use savings, hygiene improvement, waste-reduction and other sustainability considerations.

Examining Maintenance Needs, Potential Future Costs and Other Issues

Attention to maintenance needs and potential future costs are as important before constructing or refurbishing a facility as they are once the work is complete. Before purchasing new components, consider not only the aesthetics of dispensers to enhance your image—and your décor—but also:

  • Maintenance Needs—What are the anticipated maintenance intervals and maintenance costs for each option?
  • Durability—Which products can take high traffic use and continue to function well and look good?
  • Vandalism Proofing— Which products are closed systems? Which lock to prevent pilfering or waste of contents?
  • Efficiency and Waste—Do items like bathroom towel, soap and tissue dispensers provide one-at-a-time dispensing to help minimize waste and improve the overall efficiency of product use?
  • Sustainability—What third-party environmental certifications apply to the components or the products they contain? How can those certifications help support LEED certification efforts, or the larger sustainability story for the business?
  • Cross-Contamination—Do the products help minimize the potential for cross-contamination between users? Products that cut down on germ-transfer can help reduce sick days for staff, which in turn may lead to improved productivity outcomes and reduced personnel costs. 

In reviewing choices, anticipating future costs for each option allows informed decision making. Adding things like expected maintenance costs and other considerations discussed above to the initial purchase price may reveal some options to be more economical than others over the long term.
