Grace Industries constructed five elevated Comfort Stations along the Long Beach Boardwalk, replacing the existing bathrooms which were heavily damaged during Superstorm Sandy.
Work included construction of pile supported, cast-in-place concrete foundations. The prefabricated concrete unit bathroom structures were assembled using a crane at each location. The units were shop fitted, complete with all windows, doors, louvers, rough and finished plumbing, electrical and fire alarm systems to allow for rapid installation and start-up. Spanish-style tile hip roofs supported by wood trusses were installed on the buildings, including cupolas, half circle windows, fascia, soffit and frieze boards.
Wood framed platforms were constructed and finished with Ipe decking and aluminum guard rails to match the existing boardwalk. Architectural arbors were constructed on the decks at three of the Comfort Stations. Sidewalk, curb and pavement restoration was done at each location.
