Hallinan Elementary Renovation (updated March 2020)

  • Bond Team for this project includes:

    Tony Vandenberg, Executive Director of Project Management
    Debbie Hansen, Project Coordinator
    Soderstrom Architects – Design Team

    The Hallinan Elementary Renovation Project will bring significant improvements to the forty-year-old facility, preparing it to continue serving the district for forty more years. Along with safety and security improvements, classroom technology improvements, and seismic and infrastructure improvements, key design elements include a new Innovation Lab (makerspace) and a redesigned library at the heart of the school.

    Safety & Security Improvements will include:

    • access control system
    • security camera system
    • upgrades to communication system

    New classroom technology will include:

    • large-screen video monitors and Apple TV
    • Lightspeed audio enhancement systems

    Seismic Improvements will bring the entire school up to Seismic Level 3 for safe egress and the gymnasium to Seismic Level 4 for immediate occupancy after a significant seismic event.

    Infrastructure Improvements:

    • new roof
    • new thermally efficient windows
    • updates to the HVAC
    • updates to control and electrical systems

    The Innovation Lab will be housed in an addition to the school.

    The library renovation will serve to re-energize the heart of the school.

    This project is continuing to keep pace on or ahead of our original schedule. With assurance from the Lake Oswego Building Department that we will receive our full permit for construction in March, we will be able to schedule some limited early work on the exterior of the building. This will provide us with a strong leg up on the summer construction schedule.

    After working closely with Soderstrom Architects to develop the detailed design for this renovation and seeing the quality of their plans and associated construction documents, we are taking advantage of Soderstrom's thoroughness by electing to change our project delivery method from CM/GC to Stipulated Sum. We released an Invitation to Bid (ITB) on January 31 for General Contractors. The project's ITB has attracted a number of strong GC firms; we received their bids on February 27.
