This toilet and changing room enclosure in paheke resources cost the project $3.7 million.
A construction block in south Auckland has set the project back by more than $3.7 million.
According to data obtained under the Official Information Act, since July 2019, there have been three toilet facilities across the city that cost more than $1 million to construct.
The development of toilets and changing rooms at paheke collections in Auckland’s south side was the most expensive, at $3.7 million for a 380sqm block.
The facility is “well used and used” by local communities and sports clubs, Auckland area operations manager Oliver Kunzendorff said.
* Toilets set on fire, barbecues stolen and stolen: Vandalism of Waipā District facilities is on the rise.
* Park the oldest toilets in the city to open new plans
* Plan to spend half a million dollars on new Tāhunanui toilets
“The project was offered competitively with a large budget, and the cost reflects the monetary value for the construction,” said Kunzendorff.
The facility was equipped with four changing rooms, lockers, a separate referee changing room, an offline water and wastewater system, and a tank of warm water for irrigation.
Part of the building has been built and designed to receive a second floor in the future, to meet the future needs of the growing sports community.
Recipes is asking Wellsford residents what they think of the new block of toilets, which cost more than $1 million.
Beyond the North Shore, renovations to the urinals and changing rooms at Gould Reserve in Takapuna cost $2.3 million, while renovations to the urinals and changing rooms at Milford Reserve, Milford, cost $1.1 million.
To reserve the bathroom and upgrade the rooms was more expensive to include a fully accessible bathroom with a height-adjustable changing table and sink, ceiling track, shower, handrails and a toilet with space on either side for two carers to assist its user.
Devonport resident Kimberly Graham, whose 17-year-old son Finlay Butcher has athetoid cerebral palsy, previously said a lack of fully accessible swimming pools in New Zealand meant her family could get out and enjoy activities together.
The Takapuna toilet meant the family could take the bus or drive their vehicles to the beach and playground and spend more time there, without worrying about what they would do when Finlay needed to use the toilet, he said.
In support of Milford, Auckland Council has removed the existing privacy barrier and replaced it with a modern facility following community feedback.
It includes eight toilets, two of which are unisex accessible, two showers, two external showers, two different rooms, a drinking station and a new seating area.
Sarah Jones, Auckland Council’s operations manager, said the two facilities were “incredibly popular”.
“Thousands of people use pumps, showers and other facilities, so it needs to be big enough to provide a quality service.
“Reserve toilets are particularly unique and allow private funding to transform NZ toilets.”
Jones said both projects were presented “to make sure they are competitively priced” and found public currency.
“Furthermore, both sites are designated for term and function.”
The best-kept secret was the renovation project at Symonds St Auckland’s central estate.
That project came in at $962,605.83 under $1 million.
The heritage toilets had to be earthquake-strengthened to meet standards and the roofs had been repaired in brickwork and roofing, Auckland Council said.
