Anti-vandal Series
Yarramundi, Hawkesbury
Hawkesbury Council recently completed an upgrade of a recreation reserve west of Richmond at Yarramundi Reserve. The brief was for a three booth toilet building, the architecture to match an existing single plane roofed shade structure. There was no sewer or water services available on site.
Hawkesbury City Council
An anti-vandal restrrom with Single Plane Roof and CWT system was our recommendation for this project. To satisfy AS1428.1(2009) , BCA and the Premises Standard, the booth configuration was:
  • 1 x AS1428.1 (2009) Accessible booth
  • 2 x AS1428.1 (2009) Ambulant booths
  • 1 x External hand wash basin
  • 1 x Hand wash basin in accessible booth

The CAB 3 Stainless+Concrete construction system delivers a robust building fit for purpose at these remote vandal prone sites. The single plane roof was designed using Versiclad EPS roof panel. Colorbond Custom Orb roof, Micraline Colorbond underside. To match the nearby shade structure, Merbau horizontal battening was specified for the infill zone above the door walls to the underside of the roof structure ceiling. The CAB3 was melded with a CWT 10000 Collection well system, including GAS ground anchor, PVS passive ventilation system, and an ASS Anti Surcharge system for a flood prone area. The CWT system came with the CWT Management Kit, incorporating a site specific Management Plan.

A water supply to service the hand wash basins was catered for by a FWT 3000, Fresh Water Tank. This is an elevated concrete water tank ensuring adequate flows to the sink taps, all plumbing hidden from view for vandal attack management and water replenishing plumbing allowing for a water cart to top up the tank through a camlock arrangement solved. These collection wells can be positioned almost totally underground, negating the need for elevated ramp access for disabled access. These ramps are a common site on existing toilets using proprietary components.
