• May 2017 Bond - Roof/Seismic Projects

    Fernwood – Beverly Cleary K-8 School (Scheduled for summer 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 (Scheduled for 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 (Scheduled for summer 2019)

      • Roof/Seismic w/ Fall Protection - Roof and seismic upgrade will include all areas of the roof except for the two newer portable building.  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 complete assessments are still required to assess the overall roof condition. All portions of the roof will have OSHA -compliant fall protection equipment incorporated into the final design.

    Jackson Middle School (Scheduled for summer 2019)

      • Roof/Seismic w/ Fall Protection -  The roof/seismic upgrades include all roof areas, except those recently reroofed (2009), due to their deteriorating conditions. The roof assessment was based on direct observations and the 2008 Professional Roof Consultants roofing assessment report provided by PPS. All components of the roof will be replaced including flashing, sheet metal, and scuppers, 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.

     

    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 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. 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 (Scheduled for summer 2018)

      • Seismic SRGP - Scope of work will include the upgrade to meet the requirements of the SRGP seismic rehabilitation. The evaluation for the SRGP is based on the American Society of Civil Engineer (ASCE) 41-13 standard.  Upgrades include the following: Removal of windows and additional sheer walls on the exterior at the east and west ends of the south classroom wings.  Addition of plywood shear walls at the faculty dining room.  Addition of metal stud walls to brace the insufficiently reinforced concrete masonry walls in gymnasium locker rooms. Brace walls between columns and anchor brick veneer to exterior at gymnasium and cafeteria.  Install plywood sheathing and provide foundation at walls between classrooms

    Hayhurst Elementary School (Scheduled for summer 2019)

      • Seismic SRGP - Hayhurst seismic retrofit will meet immediate occupancy structural performance standard.  American Society of Civil Engineers Standard ASCE 41-13, Seismic Evaluation and Retrofit of Existing Buildings was used to complete the evaluation and strengthening scheme. Hayhurst is listed on the City’s URM database and previous seismic studies of the school indicated that a retrofit to Life Safety standards would be feasible within the maximum grant amount. The school received a complete roof replacement and associated roof level strengthening as part of the 2012 bond; the recent completion of this work reduced the required work scope matching funds needed in order to comply with the requirements of the grant application.
