Phase I; Jul 25th Construction Update
A message to our neighbors from Pam Krecklow, Real Estate & Construction Manager, Albertina Kerr:


Another week down and things are really starting to come together quickly. The paving got done yesterday and the Subacute main entry is back up and running as scheduled. Guests using the front door now get to use the new sidewalk and see the new front entry that has gone in, not to mention the new driveway and parking lot! Insulation is all in and the drywall is delivered and ready for install.

At the residence the B/B court base is in and the new driveway and curbs are looking gorgeous. The drywall and painters got done with the interior of the Residence, they ripped through the walls in a single day. Interior doors were delivered today and are being installed as I write.

Coming up:

Drywall install, taping, and mudding plus possible painting if
all goes well.

Continue interior door and window install, flooring is being installed late next week (if we pass todays moisture test,) plus I hear the B/B hoop is on its way so I wouldn't be surprised to see it up next week.

We will also be starting on landscaping too so expect to see some signs of new life starting to pop up here and there as we move through the next few weeks. The 165th sidewalk is out of commission right this minute but Andersen assures me it will get reinstalled ASAP for the neighbors continued use. The construction site and existing fencing are remaining in place until end of project.

I still don't have an exact completion date as we continue to try to get done as quickly as possible and that makes it very fluid but we are beginning to discuss furniture and moving so no matter when, it will be here before we know it.

Any questions, issues, concerns please just 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.
