Brookhaven, GA, July 28, 2016 – by Trey Benton – Greenberg-Farrow, the City of Brookhaven’s Park and Recreation Design Consultant, presented several preliminary concept designs of new park restrooms to Councilmembers Tuesday. The concepts, modern in design, include a “Small Type” and a “Large Type.”
For the smaller of the two, the concept includes one female fixture, one male fixture and one family fixture. For the larger, the concept shows four female fixtures and one ADA stall, four male fixtures and one ADA stall and one family fixture with ADA access.
The cost of the smaller restroom is estimated to be in the range of $95,000, while the larger has an estimated price tag of $150,000 each.
Each room will have features that include ADA accessibility, natural light, low water usage, limited paper products and “lots of fresh air.” All will also be on sewer.
Three “sustainability tiers” were presented – Basic, Eco-Friendly and Smart.
While the presentation was just the beginning of the conversation as to the look and feel of the park restroom facilities, the majority of Councilmembers looked favorably on the concepts.
Mayor John Ernst, however, said he wasn’t so sure the look says “Brookhaven.” He said the City needs to be cognizant of the visual design because as Brookhaven begins to conceptualize and design other improvements around the City, all should have a cohesive “branded” look.
The plans as presented are below.
