Project Description

Pence/Kelly Concrete completed this 11 month, 5.5 million dollar concrete package ahead of the scheduled completion date and achieved our goal of zero time-loss injuries. The project involved construction of a new 11 story 260,000 square foot structural steel and concrete building. The structure includes five basement levels and two free-standing concrete shear walls extending to a combined height of 350 vertical feet. Work was performed on steep terrain with little to no lay down area. All contractors parked offsite and coordinated deliveries on a just-in-time basis. This required intricate planning and coordination to avoid any delays in the project. Cutting edge technology was utilized by making use of a concrete maturity testing system to decrease shear wall form cycle times. This new addition to the Portland skyline incorporates nearly 12,000 CY of concrete.

Our success in concrete construction is driven by decades of experience as a general contractor. This experience has provided us with the knowledge of what our clients need and the ability to see a project from their point of view.

Project Description

Pence/Kelly’s contract with Hoffman for this project included over 350,000 square feet of slab-on-metal-deck, extensive curbs, stem walls and embeds. Additionally, the fourth floor landscaped roof required architecturally finished radius walls. Due to the waterproofing system in this location, an irregular forming system was utilized to ensure no penetrations through the waterproof membrane.
