Navy Pier - People’s Energy Welcome Pavilion

Navy Pier is one of the most visited leisure and cultural destinations in the world and is Chicago’s lakefront treasure. With more than 3,300 feet of parks, restaurants, exhibits and more – all uniquely situated on the shore of Lake Michigan – it’s a one-of-a-kind tourist attraction.
Navy Pier opened its People’s Energy Welcome Pavilion in 2017, designed to greet people as they get set to enjoy one of the Pier’s various amenities and provide them with information as they arrive. For the more-than-9 million guests that visit the Pier annually, the Welcome Pavilion needs to make a good first impression on visitors, while setting the tone for what they’re to expect throughout the rest of the facility.
When it came time to specify commercial restroom products at the Welcome Center, not only did Sloan’s products present the elegant aesthetic that greets guests in a pleasant environment, but they also provide the durability to stand up to the millions of users each year. The Pier also needed products that would match its commitment to sustainability, and along with the facility’s energy-saving green roof and LED lighting, Sloan’s products help to make the building over 20 percent more efficient than traditional structures.
