Project Description

Pence Kelly completed this seismic upgrade project at the Woodlark Hotel for LCG Pence Construction. It involved the tying together of 2 existing 100 year old buildings in downtown Portland and then structurally reinforcing them to code.  This included constructing two elevator cores in very tight spaces. Mike Collum and John Stewart were the Project Superintendents, Brad Hayes and Jerry O’Keefe were the Project Engineers, and both Zach Grasley and Scott Butler served as the Project Managers on this job.

Construction uncovered a lot of issues with these old deteriorating buildings that required design changes. Location and space made deliveries and access very challenging on this job. In 16 months, over 1,500 cubic yards of concrete were poured on this job.

Project Description

The Pence/Kelly PDX-QTA project for Hoffman Construction Company and owner, Port of Portland completed in 15 months of construction. This two-level parking structure sits adjacent to PDX P-2 Parking Garage. QTA stands for Quick Turn Around. Rental cars are returned on the ground level then go through an expedited process of cleaning and refueling before arriving on the top level where they remain parked until rented again.

Project Engineers includes both Zac Grasley and Brad Hays. Zach Grasley and Nat Taylor were the Project Managers while Whitey, John Stewart, Steve Taylor, Troy Humphreys, and Frank Barnes all served as project Superintendents. This was Pence/Kelly’s first BIM coordinated (Business Information Modeling) project–a three month plan and design modeling process that preceded construction.

The 315,420 square foot structure was built on 150-foot piles with pile caps and a structural parameter grade beam. Cast in place concrete walls and columns were used to support the precast double-T structure. A four-inch structural slab was placed over the double-Ts, then waterproofed, before a two and a half inch fiber reinforced topping slab was applied. Over 12,000 cubic yards of concrete were poured on this project.

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.
