Tork elevates Royal Randwick racecourse washrooms

The brief for the $150 million redevelopment of
Royal Randwick racecourse was to create a world-class spectator, dining and
entertainment facility for racing and events. The question with a project of
this scale is, how to ensure high functionality, particularly in washrooms,
whilst maintaining architecturally directed “style”?

are all delivering reliably and helping to reduce usage as well. “They are
standing up to high traffic,” Wilson reports. “There’s no breakdown or damage”.

a winning streak with the Tork Elevation range of dispensers at the new Royal Randwick
