The job consisted of complete renovation and expansion
for all of the boy's restroom facilities at Fort Pitt Elementary
School. The existing restrooms were very small and had not
been extensively renovated since the building was built in 1907.
With the design and engineering work by Graves Architects, Inc., the restrooms were able to be
expanded by providing the proper structural support necessary to remove 24-inch thick load bearing
walls. The new restrooms included the top of the line ceramic tile, acoustical ceilings, toilet partitions,
and toilet accessories.
In addition, all new custom made doors were installed. The doors were 8ft tall and made of solid
wood to match the existing doors in the building and to preserve the historic look to the building.
All of the work was done on a compressed ten week schedule to ensure the students and faculty
were not disrupted.
