This project consisted of the construction of two new concrete tilt-up buildings with a combined 57,400, conveniently placed next to their existing facility in Wilsonville, Oregon. One of the buildings included around 3,000 SF of wood framed office build-out and mezzanine space.

From the beginning of the project, the team faced an enormous obstacle in that the project had originally been designed 15 years prior. The project team worked diligently to coordinate with ownership, civil engineers, and utility companies to address the existing utility locations that conflicted with the dated plans.

Despite facing the disruptions of unknown site conditions, schedule impacts, plan and design conflicts, and the Covid-19 pandemic, the project team was able to put their adaptability and experience to work, and successfully see the project through its completion.

Perlo’s team self-performed the following scopes:

  • Structural concrete including footings, slabs, tilt panels, dock aprons, and stair pans
  • Installation of engineered timber framing
  • Doors, frames and hardware installation
