Public Restroom Gets an Upgrade
Los Angeles, CA (July 6, 2016) – General contractor, PCL Construction donated its resources and time to fully renovate the Los Angeles (LA) Mission’s outdoor restroom facility at no cost.

The City of Los Angeles required that the LA Mission provide an accessible restroom, in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, which could remain open to the public 24 hours a day. In addition, the current facility was in desperate need of renovation and had no door. PCL Construction worked with the Mission and subcontractors to donate their time and resources to self-perform the renovation of the facility.

“We are extremely grateful to PCL and its partners for constructing this extremely needed facility at the Los Angeles Mission, said Herb Smith, president and CEO of the Los Angeles Mission. “Ending homelessness begins with little steps like a meal or bathroom. Thank you for making life just a little kinder to our friends and neighbors experiencing homelessness.”

The work completed included adding a fence and gate, moving the entrance, and adding a door. A stall and sink were added inside the renovated restroom, an external light was added for visibility, and an occupancy light was added to the door.

“PCL believes in building strong communities by donating our time and resources when we can. We’re  proud to support the LA Mission by making a safe, accessible space for people to use,” said Jack Sample, PCL’s vice president and district manager. “It’s an honor to have the ability to help the Mission and those they serve by renovating the facility.”

The project was completed in four weeks and the facility is now open to the public.
