Phase I; April May 12th Construction Update
A message to our neighbors from Pam Krecklow, Real Estate & Construction Manager, Albertina Kerr:


After last week, this week is going to be a bit boring. Hard to compete with the dramatic fall of the old exterior wall that faced 165th as we finished the cut-in. If you wish to see the video see Krisanne or let me know and I can send it to you.

Albertina Kerr Project Phase I; Sub-Acure Framing (fore), New Residents Facility (back)
Albertina Kerr, Sub-Acute framing begins

We also got completed last week:

  • The exterior framing of the residence
  • The cold storage building demolished (campus looks really different now)
  • Subacute framing started

This next week is going to be less exciting but a bit noisy as we hammer, hammer, hammer on:

  • Roofing on the residence
  • Continue framing on Subacute
  • We will also be moving inside on the new residence working on rough in for plumbing, electrical, and equipment install
  • Also decommissioning the old well this week

But the weather and progress should keep us all happy.

Please let me know if there are any issues, questions, concerns in regards to the construction.

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.
