Washroom Renovation Update #8

While you have been enjoying the use of the washrooms – please be advised that there remains some deficiencies to be resolved which will take time. We are getting exceptional follow through from our members: Grant Delaney, Michael Ross and Zoltan Vincze; as well as superb collaboration from our builder RD Steele and their PM George Moore.

Some updates:

Pivot shower doors were installed 08 June 2016.

Switch above shower entrance in men’s and women’s is an override switch to permit continuous operation of fans on weekends.

Hole in countertop for garbage can will be accomplished in the next week

Pot lights were installed in lieu of fluorescent lights in men’s and women’s washrooms

Makeup counter and mirrors will be installed/adjusted post tile work. Emergency light will be installed in universal washroom.

Major Issues:

Deficient tiling is being redone – a significant task. Timelines are significant and additional tile has been ordered with an EDD TBD. Work will be accomplished by individual washroom (universal then women’s then men’s).

Fans still need to be properly adjusted and balanced.

Partitions for toilets and shower stalls have an EDD of next week and will be installed.


Please minimize use of toilet paper – we have low flush toilets since we truck out all sewage.

A label has been placed on toilets to press and hold to ensure good flushing.

Leak in men’s toilet noted and will be repaired.

An automatic priming switch has been installed on well water to preclude need to re-prime manually post power failure.

Lights in washrooms are on a sensor – no need to attempt to turn them on or off – being properly adjusted in near future.

Fans are triggered by the IR sensor in the ceiling unless in override position.
