Reece & associates is working with the Linn Economic Development Group and Albany Millersburg Econmic Development Corp to bring a new Intermodal Transfer Center to the region. This facility is designed to assist in the transfer of goods from Truck to Rail and vice-versa. By allowing shipments to and from central Oregon to be shipped via rail directly to the Seattle Ports, we will help increase efficiency in our transportation system and reduce road congestion within the Willamette Valley. this in turn helps reduce our carbon footprint and emissions.
A Project Plan has been submitted to secure funding from ODOT and if approved construction will begin January 2019
Samaritan Hospital in Lincoln City is being replaced with a new building. After the new hospital is constructed, the existing hospital will be torn down and remaining campus improvements will be completed. R&a is an integral part of the design and construction team, working to create these improvements. We have engineered and continue to oversee the civil infrastructure improvements. Designing grading, water and sewer improvements for the new structure while not disrupting services to the old hospital has been a unique challenge.
Site Work began July 2018 and full build-out is expected in Spring of 2020.
Tear down and reconstruction of Oak Grove Elementary School is a very important project for our community. R&a is proud of our integral contribution to engineering on this site. We are working closely with Gerding Builders, Greater Albany Public School District and Benton County officials to ensure the project is following civil construction standards while simultaneously creating a visually inspiring, safe and easy to access space for students, parents and teachers.
Construction started summer 2018 and the new school will be ready for students in fall 2019. It will be built for a student enrollment capacity of 400 or 500 students.
Edgewater Village is a special neighborhood just down the road from our office. The property is located on Water Avenue, near downtown Albany and offers convenient living along the Willamette River and Dave Clark Trail. R&a has designed and overseen the installation of Public Improvements such as streets, sidewalks and utilities, acting as the Engineer of Record, on this project. Ensuring our work creates improved local neighborhoods is a key value at R&a.
The beautiful hills surrounding Depoe Bay create a spectacular site for the creation of a multi-dimensional neighborhood, with incredible views. They also provide a unique and substantial challenge for the Civil Engineer. R&a has risen to this challenge and has painstakingly attended to the grading and infrastructure plan for this community. We are working to create accessible roads, and ensure superior water pressure and sanitary disposal at every elevation of this unique development.
Nestled in the Nelscott District of Lincoln City, Olivia Beach is created as a traditional coastal neighborhood. It's character is defined by narrow streets, rear alleys, front porches and carefully crafted common areas. R&a began working with developers during initial planning and schematic design in 2004. We work closely with Lincoln City Planning offices to navigate the Land Use Planning process. R&a continues to create engineered civil plans for each phase of on-going development .
