Pigeon Lake Shower Facilities


When you are building new structures in an area that is revered for its unspoiled natural beauty, you feel a certain sense of responsibility. For this project, we were careful during the construction process to be as unobtrusive as possible to the environment and to the people who used these parks. We were also fortunate to work with an architectural firm that created facilities that were so well-suited to the surroundings.
Both of these shower buildings serve popular campgrounds, several kilometers apart, on the shores of Pigeon Lake—one in Pigeon Lake Provincial Park, the other, smaller one in Zeiner Park. They were designed with the location very much in mind, with natural wood elements to blend in with the surrounding environment, and plenty of natural lighting.

Work proceeded on both sites simultaneously, and both were completed as projected. We think this is the way projects like this should be done: providing necessary modern amenities while maintaining a sense of respect for the natural setting in both the design and construction process.
