Greater Rochester International Airport Restroom Renovations
Pathfinder is providing architectural design services to Monroe County and the Greater Rochester International Airport for renovations to the public restroom facilities throughout the airport . The project began in 2015 with the design and construction of the lower level restroom modules in Phase 1, and continued in 2017 with Phase 2 which completed two more restroom modules on the upper/departure level.
Each restroom module consists of men’s and women’s rooms, a family restroom, a nursing mother’s room and utility spaces. Construction on the final phase of work, Phase 3, is scheduled to begin in Spring 2020 and will consist of renovations to the two largest modules of restrooms on the concourse wings. Temporary restrooms will be built in order to accommodate travelers while the new spaces are under construction.
The project scope includes a complete gut renovation of the existing restrooms including walls, ceilings and terrazzo flooring. Updated finishes were reviewed with the client to select materials and colors that will be durable, low maintenance and stylish for many years. Ceramic tile walls and floors, quartz countertops, solid surface wall protection and graffiti resistant toilet stalls are some of the features that were incorporated. Sensitivity to the transition to existing finishes within the concourse was also an important consideration.
Pathfinder reviewed toilet accessories and provided the Owner with samples to test. Signage was also included in the project scope.
