Phase I; April 11th Construction Update
A message to our neighbors from Pam Krecklow, Real Estate & Construction Manager, Albertina Kerr:


Well it has been a full week:

  • The change in weather has allowed us to get the first concrete pour done, which means we have footings.....yeah!
  • We got the new North driveway cut in.
  • Sub Acute's entrance got shifted from the South side of the building to the North side. Yes it's different but you get a great view of the construction site.
  • IT's (information technology) fiber work got completed so that project is done and the road between Louise and Sub Acute is open again.
  • We started the decommissioning process on the old well, which is beside the cold storage building.
  • We began interior demolition of the Louise Building, we aren't doing anything on the outside so all you will see is a bunch of stuff (including some horse hair plaster, yes that's how they made plaster back in 1925) being tossed into dumpsters.

Next week expect:

  • More concrete trucks, we will begin pouring our slabs which after those cure we will be going vertical.....the really exciting stuff!
  • We will be working on the area along 165th and the new emergency entrance to campus.
  • Coming Soon:

    • A new fire/water vault will be going in soon. Yes I am the only one probably excited about this one but it is a huge hurdle. This work will cause some issues for Sub Acute when it happens but we are working up plans to address all contingencies.

    As always if you have any issues, questions, or are just curious let me know.

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.
