New Public Toilet and Shower Block for Boyes Beach

Boyes Beach on Lake Okareka is a popular spot for swimming, fishing and picnics, consisting of BBQs, picnic tables, toilets, playground and designated overnight parking area for campervans and motorhomes.

The recently completed toilet and shower block replaces the old public toilets and adds family rooms, indoor and outdoor showers, dishwashing facilities and wash down pads for cleaning sports equipment to protect the biodiversity of the lake.

GRB Construction with Bishop Architecture were awarded the design and build contract to work on this state-of-the-art toilet and shower block. The brief provided included facilities for multiple users, each with unique requirements. The building design uses wood as structural components and as feature elements alongside concrete tilt slab walls and takes inspiration from the landscape surrounding the lake.

MacDonald Industries collaborated with Bishop Architecture to provide bathroom fixtures and fittings for the build. “This project is located in a beautiful spot within the Rotorua Lakes area. It was important to select fittings that are going to cope with high traffic demand, are reliable and continue look to good for the community in years to come,” say Bishop Architecture.

MacDonald Industries bathroom products have been specifically designed for public environments like the Boyes Beach toilet and shower facilities. Unlike residential products, commercial bathroom products must be resistant to intensive use and vandalism, reliable, easy to install and maintain, hygienic, easy to clean and have maximum water and energy savings.
