Loo up­grade costs $340,000


Porirua City Coun­cil has spent $340,000 on a bath­room up­grade at Pataka.

Fig­ures re­leased to Kapi-Mana News show the coun­cil spent the money on an up­grade that fin­ished in Fe­bru­ary.

Prop­erty man­ager Greg Pa­tience said the one-off project was nec­es­sary be­cause the ex­ist­ing fa­cil­i­ties had reached the end of their life cy­cle.

‘‘These fa­cil­i­ties are heav­ily used in an important pub­lic lo­ca­tion,’’ he said.

‘‘We have pro­vided mod­ern, clean and to­tally ser­vice­able fin­ishes with a nice en­try – no doors.

‘‘We used Max­i­mum tiles on all wall fin­ishes, only the second time this has been done in New Zealand and the first time in Welling­ton.

‘‘Max­i­mum is an ex­tremely strong and re­silient prod­uct which will re­duce our op­er­a­tional costs.’’

He said ac­ces­si­ble fa­cil­i­ties were part of the ex­ist­ing bath­room, but were now in a more user-friendly po­si­tion, with bet­ter ac­cess.

In ad­di­tion to the bath­room up­grade, a par­ent­ing room had also been built for Pataka vis­i­tors.
