The Voluntary Seismic Strengthening project entailed architectural and seismic upgrades to multiple buildings on the Westmoreland School Campus. Improvements consisted of seismic rehabilitation of wood-framed structures, roofing and sheet metal replacement, window replacement and extensive dry rot repairs. The classrooms received a full refresh including upgraded lighting, re-insulated walls, floor coverings, windows and painting.
After entering into a contract with Lane ESD, $500,000 in architectural improvements were added to the scope of the project. The project was still completed within a short 14-week time period, barely overlapping the new school year. Strategic planning and stringent safety protocols were crucial in order to complete the work around the active campus.
In order to ensure there were no delays to the already tight schedule, McKenzie Commercial was able to assist Lane ESD with the facilitation of the completion of the HVAC work hired under a separate contract. In order to accommodate the roofing and elevation of duct work, modifications were required in every classroom. With close collaboration, we were able to assist in getting this taken care of without any delays or additional costs to Lane ESD.
