Echo Canyon Summit Trail, AZ

Curved Metal Roof with Green Accents

The Echo Canyon Summit Trail is a very popular hiking attraction for visitors and residents of Phoenix, Arizona. This trail allows hikers to summit Camelback Mountain that overlooks all of Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale, and on to Glendale and Mesa. The Echo Canyon Summit Trail is a 2.5-mile round-trip hike and it takes hikers on a climb of over 1,200 feet. The popularity of the hike was causing headaches for residents living near the trailhead as there was no good parking. The led to parked cars glutting the streets of the neighborhoods around the mountain. The City of Phoenix stepped up to improve the park.

Gatehouse Controlling Entry to Park

Adding parking was a central priority for the project, but the City also wanted to provide restrooms, a shade structure for hikers, and a gatehouse to monitor the new parking lot. This project was intended to provide relief to the surrounding neighborhood, but it also provided hikers with water, restrooms, and sanctuary from the strong Arizona sunshine. Romtec designed all three of the structures for this project, each structure included design elements to match the others. The most prominent feature on these structures is the curved metal roofs, but they also include painted metal beams, colored block, and textured block layouts.

On large projects with multiple structural requirements, Romtec excels at designing and supplying buildings that match each other and that match the characteristics of the application. Many projects have succeeded by using Romtec with an expanded scope beyond only a restroom building. Although Romtec began as a restroom company, customers can rely on Romtec to function as a design-build firm for many types of buildings and structures. Working through a single agency in this manner is a great way for projects to get all of the buildings and structures it needs.
