Burnaby washroom project moves into Phase 2

The Fraser Foreshore Park public washroom project recently moved into the schematic design phase after the City of Burnaby Parks Department approved progressing with Phase 2 of the project.

JDa previously completed the feasibility study for the washroom building, offering a design concept that could be adapted and used through the Burnaby Parks Department facilities.

Some of the key client drivers of the study included a low maintenance facility as well as graffiti resistance. The site also presented several challenges such as a narrow shape, an existing dike wall and multiple below grade services with right-of-way and associated setback limitations.

The architectural response created a modular design solution, scalable to meet site specific needs, built with simple durable materials and incorporating passive sustainable elements in the interchangeable washrooms which are designed to accommodate any person regardless of gender identity or expression by integrating gender neutrality.
