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.
