M. James Gleason Memorial Boat Ramp in Portland, Oregon
Romtec designed and supplied a restroom building for a boat launch in Portland, Oregon. M. James Gleason Memorial Boat Ramp is one of Oregon’s most popular boat ramps and is a favorite among locals. The boat launch was awarded the “Outstanding Large Access” award from the States Organization for Boating Access after several improvements were made to the site. Some of these upgrades included adding a debris deflection barrier, adding additional parking spaces and repaving the parking lot, and the addition of a permanent Romtec restroom building. Metro chose to incorporate several sustainable building features, the building’s roof structure uses efficient structurally insulated panels or SIPs and a solar panel on the roof of the building generates power. This is a great location for a day trip, it’s easy to see why this award-winning boat launch is a favorite among locals.
