May 2017 Bond - Roof/Seismic & Seismic Retrofit Projects

  • Sitton Roof before New Roof at Sitton

    Fernwood – Beverly Cleary K-8 School (Completed fall 2018)

      • Roof/Seismic w/ Fall Protection - The roof/seismic upgrades include all roof areas due to their deteriorating conditions. The roof assessment was based on direct observations and the 2011 Professional Roof Consultants roofing assessment report provided by Portland Public Schools. All components of the roof will be replaced including skylights, flashing, sheet metal, and gutters, with seismic upgrades including parapet bracing strengthening roof decks and improving roof to wall connection.   All portions of the roof will have installed OSHA-compliant fall protection on equipment, with new roof hatches, and new fixed ladders.

    Martin Luther King Jr. School (Completed summer 2018)

      • Roof/Seismic w/ Fall Protection - The roof/seismic upgrades include all roof areas, except for the MLK Jr. Community Annex. The complete roof assessments are still required by the design firm.  All components of the roof will be replaced included skylights, flashings and sheet metal, with seismic upgrades including parapet bracing strengthening roof decks and improving roof to wall connection.  All portions of the roof will have OSHA -compliant fall protection equipment incorporated into the final design.

    Rigler Elementary School (Completed summer 2019)

      • Roof/Seismic w/ Fall Protection - Roof and seismic upgrade will include all areas of the roof except for the two newer portable buildings.  All components of the roof will be replaced included skylights, flashings and sheet metal, with seismic upgrades including parapet bracing strengthening roof decks and improving roof to wall connection. The unreinforced masonry chimney was also removed. All portions of the roof will have OSHA -compliant fall protection equipment incorporated into the final design.

    May 2017 Bond Seismic retrofit projects made possible with SRGP funds

    Hayhurst & Lewis Elementary have received seismic rehabilitation grants from Business Oregon, the state's economic development agency. The Seismic Rehabilitation Grant Program (SRGP) is a state of Oregon competitive grant program that provides funding for the seismic rehabilitation of critical public buildings, particularly public schools and emergency services facilities. The evaluation for the SRGP funds is based on the American Society of Civil Engineer (ASCE) 41-13 standard. Portland Public Schools will continue to diligently pursue SRGP funding as well as other opportunities to improve the quality of its schools as they become available.

    Lewis Elementary School (Completed fall 2018)

      • Seismic Retrofit Immediate Occupancy - SRGP funded - The Lewis seismic retrofit will meet immediate occupancy structural performance standards.The scope of the work included the following: Removal of windows and adding additional sheer walls on the exterior at the east and west ends of the south classroom wings.  The addition of plywood shear walls at the faculty dining room.  The addition of metal stud walls to brace the insufficiently reinforced concrete masonry walls in gymnasium locker rooms. Bracing walls between columns and anchoring brick veneer to exterior at gymnasium and cafeteria.  Installed plywood sheathing and provided foundation at walls between classrooms. The school received a complete roof replacement and associated roof level strengthening in 2013 as part of the 2012 bond; this work reduced the required work scope of matching funds needed in order to comply with the requirements of the SRGP application.

    Hayhurst Elementary School (First half completed summer 2019 / Second half scheduled for summer 2020)

      • Seismic Retrofit Immediate Occupancy - SRGP funded - Hayhurst Elementary School is being seismically upgraded to meet immediate occupancy structural performance standards. The scope of the work includes the following: Contractors installed plywood sheathing at walls between classrooms while also adding additional exterior shear walls classrooms in the North wing of the school. In addition, structural steel bracing and fiber-reinforcement was added to the gymnasium walls. The same scope will be performed on the South classroom wing and Cafeteria over Summer 2020..  The school received a complete roof replacement and associated roof level strengthening in 2015 as part of the 2012 bond; this work reduced the required work scope of matching funds needed in order to comply with the requirements of the SRGP application.
