When Your Restrooms Stink,
What It Says About YOUR Facility

A woman walks into your restroom……she wants a clean, fresh-smelling experience.
A facility manager walks into the same restroom……she wants touch free fixtures, sustainable materials, flexible and durable products, AND acceptable indoor air quality

Waiting for the punchline? This is no joke.

The Bradley Corporation recently conducted research which shows the condition of restrooms has taken a nosedive, according to consumer perception. Almost 70 percent of Americans reported experiencing unpleasant conditions in restrooms in 2015 – a 20% increase since 2012. When asked the most important improvement they'd like to see in restrooms, survey respondents overwhelmingly said "clean them more regularly," to quote the study.

Furthermore, as for building owners and facility managers, the challenge is optimizing the appearance and cleanliness of restrooms while minimizing time and costs for installation, maintenance repairs and replacement parts. Gaining operational efficiency on the front end of restroom design can free up valuable staff time and extend the lifespan of restroom fixtures.
In all, today's commercial restroom design innovations improve the customer experience, promote lasting durability and efficiency, and increase satisfaction for all stakeholders.

Peter Rehn is an Associate of RMKM Architecture and brings over 24 years of experience in project management, design, construction documentation and construction administration. During his 21 years with RMKM, he has been integral in the design and development of all RMKM work.  Peter works on a diverse range of public building types. As the Project Manager for the San Carlos Apache Healthcare Center in Arizona, he also has familiarity with healthcare requirements.  His passion for a clean modern design aesthetic is tempered by a firm understanding of pragmatic concerns and regional sensibilities.

Eighth Annual Golf Scholarship Fundraiser
Featured Happy Crowd, Door Prizes for All!

With over 116 golfers and 11 helpers, the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico 2018 Scholarship Fundraiser Golf Tournament will help sustain the scholarship funds at Central New Mexico Community College and The University of New Mexico.  Enjoying a cool, picture perfect day at the Isleta Eagle Championship Golf Course, golfers and golf helpers alike left the event with a door prize in hand.

Loyalty from the membership and its many supporters (both members and non-member companies alike) who believe in and support our educational initiative is the one constant factor in the annual event's continued success.  Distinct contributions, both large and small, from countless companies and outstanding individuals personalized the gathering. 

Again the trend to companies fielding multiple teams of golfers continued as they competed in the Championship Division to win the esteemed silver trophy.

Tables full of valuable door prizes mitigated even a bad day on the greens.  Power tools, bar-b-que grills, a drone, a guitar, restaurant gift certificates, camping gear, and loads of golf equipment and much much more left with the athletes after the post-game buffet.
"Christmas in July!" exclaimed repeat offender Mark Awe with BNSF Railroad. "Once again this tournament is the best in town!"     

Thank You to all The Sponsors

Attention Healthcare Facility Managers
Or Any FM Who Needs Compliance Training:
Here is a Resource 

The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) Hazardous Waste Bureau conducts hazardous waste inspections at hospitals, pharmacies, as well as other types of facilities.  They offer their services to conduct free training concerning managing hazardous waste at hospitals and pharmacies.  Having recently conducted inspections at several hospitals, they have found the majority of them to be out of compliance.  Their aim to provide this training to large audiences spreads the information more quickly than individually inspecting each hospital/pharmacy.

But beyond healthcare, NMED believes they might be able to target some training for other diverse and various types of facilities.  Compliance assistance is a key component in their program and keeping facilities in compliance makes the job a lot easier. 

Need more information to start this discussion? Contact Janine Kraemer, CHMM, Hazardous Waste Supervisor for the New Mexico Environment Department, 2905 Rodeo Park Drive East, Building 1,Santa Fe NM 87505 office  505-476-4372, or email to  or connect with Facility Manager Association’s vice president, Tom Plummer with the Indian Health Services at
