West Albany High School Bond Project

West Albany High School is nearly seventy years old. The construction bond will be used in the development of an auxiliary gym, CTE spaces, student commons, and an auditorium, which will be available for use by the entire district.


Current Activities

Gerding Builders, LLC (GB) continued to construct areas B&C structural steel and have erected the new theater tilt panels. The stadium work is complete, and controls are being installed prior to building turn over. Although the tilt panels have been cast within schedule, the slow delivery of structural steel has caused a 21-day delay to the critical path. The project’s schedule is now being analyzed for areas that could accelerate the completion of the project. The team is currently prioritizing the work to focus on critical building areas necessary for the occupancy of the building and continued function.

Activities Scheduled for Next Period

February will focus on the construction of structural steel in the commons area and in preparation of closing in the roof structure.

Highlights, Challenges, Solutions

The new theater tilt wall panels were successfully erected. These are the third tallest panels constructed in Oregon.

Seismic Grant work drawings were produced at the Development Design level. The estimated costs for construction were reported at twice the budget. The Design will be refocused in an effort to minimize construction costs. The bid process will be public announcement and a dedicated value engineering effort will be employed.
