Phase I; April 4th Construction Update
A message to our neighbors from Pam Krecklow, Real Estate & Construction Manager, Albertina Kerr:

As expected it was a pretty quiet this week. In spite of the rain we have been able to finish the trenching, pipe install, and slab layout. We have also made great process on installing rebar and the concrete forms. IT (information technology) has also been working on installing some fiber lines which is the work that has been happening on the road way behind the Louise Building.

Next week we can expect:

  • A new entrance into Sub Acute, we will be shifting the temporary entrance to the North side of the building versus were it is on the South side currently. Look for that to be open when you get to campus on Thursday the 10th.
  • The new Sub Acute entrance is allowing us to cut the new driveway in earlier than expected, keep in mind this is just forming it. We are not opening the driveway until we are done with construction.
  • Decommissioning of the old well that is adjacent to the Cold Storage Building (expecting that on Monday the 7th)
  • And yes we should have some concrete next week also.

Still excited as we will soon see some vertical elements happening as we move on to framing.

The parking will remain as depicted on the parking map. A new version is attached that reflects the new Sub Acute entrance but parking areas have not changed.

As always if you have any questions, concerns, or issues please let me know so the project team can get a solution.

Construction on a new sub-acute care addition, and a new residential facility, began in March at Albertina Kerr Centers Gresham Campus, 722 NE 162nd Ave. Work on the project is expected to be completed in July.

The 6,000 square feet of new space, a new exercise area and parking lot improvements will allow the facility to serve approximately 25% more children and families.

Since 1997, Albertina Kerr Centers has operated a youth crisis psychiatric facility on its Gresham Campus.

The 24-bed facility has benefited over 4,000 children experiencing severe mental health challenges and their families over the past 15 years and is the only facility of its type in the State of Oregon.
