Portland Loo Goes International

By 1 Comment

Cover of the Global Guideline for Practical Public Toilet DesignThe City of Victoria, British Columbia in Canada proudly purchased the first Portland Loo ever exported to a foreign city, endearingly called the Langley Street Loo. The Loo was purchased for the price of $90,000. As part of the purchase agreement, our very own Loo installation expert, engineer David Gray traveled to Victoria for the installation. Everything went very well, and now citizens and tourists have 24 hour access to a restroom near Bastion Square, a beautiful and busy public market and tourist destination.

Then we got word that the Portland Loo has become a poster child for public toilets…a photo of the first Portland Loo will be on the cover of the Global Guideline for Practical Public Toilet Design, published by the International Code Council and The tagline for the International Code Council is “People Helping People Build a Safer World,” and we couldn’t agree more. Exporting Portland Loo’s will help improve the world one toilet at a time…and at a profit for the City of Portland!

Lastly, if you haven't checked it out lately, our Portland Loo website ( is growing thanks to Brash Creative, a student run marketing group at the Art Institute of Portland. They also produced a quick video of a Portland Loo installation!

Enjoy your next visit to a local Portland Loo!
