The University of Abomey-Calavi (UAC) is the oldest university in Benin and has over 45,000 students [1]. UAC is located in southern Benin within the city of Abomey-Calavi, which has a population of 386,000 people [2]. The client for this study, Dr. Charlene Gaba, a researcher at UAC, has requested a feasibility study for a sanitation facility that will serve the campus mall area of UAC, which does not currently have a dedicated facility for guests and vendors. The sanitation facility, also referred to as a sanitation block, will be a free-standing building featuring a system that could showcase sustainable design practices for the University. This feasibility study provides an analysis of design options, financial evaluations, and recommendations for the project to proceed.
