Now Värnamo can meet every need

The City of Värnamo now has its first public toilet. The level of service that city visitors enjoy has received a major boost.

Easy access to toilets is a basic requirement in order for people to be able to spend long periods of time in public places. And not only big urban centres – small cities need toilets, too. The Municipality of Värnamo saw the benefits and advantages of having a free-standing public toilet and decided to install one.

“This is something the merchants’ association has been requesting for a long time”, says Sven Strömberg, the building services engineer who managed the toilet project for the Municipality of Värnamo. Once a site was chosen, the procurement process could begin. It was carried out in accordance with the Swedish Public Procurement Act. Danfo won the contract.
“There aren’t many companies in Sweden that can compete with them, if there are any at all”, says Sven Strömberg.

In consultation with municipal officials, Danfo submitted a design proposal that won the client’s approval. The new facility opened in November 2015, a Tetragon 120 with three toilets, two standard-sized and one larger for disabled access. Danfo has also handled operations and maintenance ever since.

“It means a lot to the city centre to have public toilets”, says Sven Strömberg. “This is a public service of the most basic kind.” As a building services engineer, Sven Strömberg juggles a full docket of parallel projects. He has many years of experience with construction and infrastructure projects under his belt.

“If I were grading Danfo on their work throughout the process, I would give them an A+. They have come through on every single undertaking. I am genuinely impressed. Service-minded, eager for feedback, eager to make sure we were satisfied. I would absolutely recommend them to others in the future.”
