MTFA designed and provided construction administration services for two structures attached at a central gutter spine, one housing two new toilet rooms and the other a picnic shelter opening to views of the park.
The facility was designed to maximize natural daylight into the restrooms to cut back on energy costs and is oriented to provide the possibility for future solar panel implementation. The two buildings are approximately 850 sf combined in size with sloped metal roofs, vandal resistant block, hard wood (LPE) siding and translucent polycarbonate panels.
