Fort Stevens is a public restroom/shower facility that was constructed for the State of Oregon Parks & Recreation Department. Fort Stevens is located outside Astoria, on the Northern Oregon Coast.
Site constraints into the park made modular construction the perfect solution for this state protected site. Modulars were shipped complete with cement floors and all fixtures installed at the manufacturing facility.
Completing as much work as possible at the manufacturing plant eliminated multiple vehicles and crews at the campground. Site utilities were installed while the building was being constructed as the manufacturing plant to minimize the overall time at the site.
Stainless steel items were installed throughout the building to eliminate rust in this salty coastal environment.
Keeping power consumption to a minimum was facilitated by installing occupancy sensors and sensor controls for lighting and fans. High efficiency gas boilers for hot water heaters and re-circulation system with expansion tanks were used on all water piping.
To aid in the longevity of the building, vandal proof fixtures were installed throughout the building from shower fixtures to toilet partitions.
Tongue & groove 2 x 6 exposed interior roof decking, cement fibre board & batt siding with brick wainscoating and standing seam metal roofing are just a few of the finishes used on this building.
