SCEC is proud to announce successful completion of another project for the Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. The El Mar Restroom Building and Plaza opened as scheduled in time for the Town’s popular Christmas-by-the-Sea event December 7.
This project was designed to provide the Town with much needed public restrooms, additional parking and an open gathering space to serve both beachgoers and downtown business patrons.
The building was designed by Anthony Abbate, AIA, and reflects the mid-century modern architecture style found in many buildings throughout the seaside town. The project faced the challenge of being designed and constructed to be as maintenance-free and vandal resistant as possible, and at the same time use only products that did not contain any corrosion-prone iron due to the proximity to the ocean.
SCEC, as the Construction Manager, and the design team were able to use a combination of standard and custom products to meet the challenges, including stainless steel structural columns, custom aluminum louvers, porcelain light fixtures, and fiberglass doors. The result is an artistic restroom building in a park setting with a long service life.
SCEC completed the restroom building within budget under a Construction Management at Risk contract with the Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea. SCEC’s previous projects for the Town include the reconstruction and streetscape beautification of its Commercial Boulevard corridor.
