Pivot submitted for permit and we are awaiting review feedback from the county. We don’t expect a permit in hand until late May at this point.
Gerding has collected subcontractor bids and is developing their GMP for this project. Wenaha anticipates requesting board approval of the GMP at the April 30 special board meeting.
Gerding completed the ceiling tile abatement (vacuuming) work while student were out of the building.
Gerding has scheduled the final drywall abatement portion of work for the last half of April while students are still out of the classroom. This will give the team more time to complete the summer work in the remodeled spaces that turn over at the end of summer 2020.
Move coordination continues to evolve as students are out of the building. If school does not resume, we anticipate moving materials earlier than June.
- View the March update here
Pivot is scheduled to issue 100% CD plans on Friday, March 28. Pivot will submit those plans to the city of Corvallis during the first week in April.
Gerding held a sub-contractor open house Tuesday, February 11 in an effort to reach more local sub-contractors and to generate interest in our projects to help ensure good bidding competition and coverage.
Gerding is scheduling some ceiling tile abatement (vacuuming) work for Building F over spring break (March 23-27).
Move coordination meetings with staff are scheduled this week and additional meetings will occur as needs develop.
CVHS’s new secure entry vestibule work, which is not part of the bond promise and will be funded by construction excise tax revenues, will start during spring break and continue several weeks into April.
Gerding has put together a construction schedule for the Building F work beginning June 2020 and running through the end of summer 2021.
We will be re-starting “construction team” meetings in March. This will allow for continued team dialogue to keep staff informed of current construction schedules and will help to ensure a smooth summer exit by staff and minimizing surprises.
February, 2020: Design is tracking on schedule for late February
- View the February update here
Move coordination meetings are ongoing in January, including a recent session with the front office team on January 21.
Research and investigation is underway to find the best storage solution for district projects, including CVHS. Many of the sites will require temporary relocation and storage of equipment, teaching materials and furnishings.
Design is tracking on schedule for late February 100% Contract Documents and permit submittal.
A grant application for CVHS seismic improvements was completed and submitted January 16. It is expected that we will know whether a grant will be offered by June 2020. If successful, the district will be able to expand the structural upgrades at CVHS.

December 2019: Designs to be Submitted for Permitting in February
- View the December update here
Pivot Architecture is working with CSD staff on the final Construction Document (CD) details and plan to submit to the County for permit in late February.
Pivot’s team is working on the design for the seismic improvements as part of the process for applying for a $2.5 million State Seismic Grant in early January. Testing took place over the summer to gather more data on the condition of the existing building. The structural design has continued to develop for building F.
The District has contracted with Lancaster Logistics to provide move coordination services. This will help alleviate staff concerns about moving classrooms and to ensure smooth transitions. Given the current load of school projects this next year, the district does not have enough staff to move and set up all of the classrooms that will be impacted.
November, 2019: Design Development Nearing Completion
- View the November update here
The final Design Advisory Committee meeting was held in October.
Wenaha Group is engaging a Move Consultant to coordinate move logistics. This is intended to help relieve staff concerns about moving classrooms and to ensure smooth transitions.
The design development phase is complete and Pivot Architecture is working with CSD staff on the final design details through the end of this year.
Pivot’s team is working on the design for the seismic improvements and they will apply for a $2.5 million State Seismic Grant this winter. Testing took place over the summer to gather more data on the condition of the existing building. The structural design has continued to develop.
October, 2019: Design Development Continuing
The Building A boiler replacement project is complete.
The work on the athletic fields continues. The contractor has completed installing the synthetic turf. The track surfacing has begun and will continue as weather allows.
The design development phase is nearing completion and Pivot Architecture will begin working with staff on the final design details this fall.
Pivot Architecture is also working on a design for the seismic improvements and the team will apply for a $2.5 million State Seismic Grant this winter assuming the program rolls out as expected. Testing took place over the summer to gather more data on the condition of the existing building to better inform the requirements of planned seismic improvements.
The next Design Advisory Committee meeting will be held this fall.
September, 2019: Athletic Field Work Continues
The boiler replacement project is complete.
Work on the athletic fields continues with the installation of the synthetic turf this month. Track surfacing will begin once the turf installation is complete. Field improvements will be complete by November 2019. The design development phase is nearing completion and Pivot Architecture will begin working with staff on the final design details this fall.

July-August, 2019: Athletic Facilities Improvements
The final base rock fine grading for the turf and final base rock prep for the asphalt at the new D zone work was installed the last week of August.
Paving will be the next step. Given the type of track materials used, the asphalt must cure for at least 28 days before the track surface can be laid.
The turf installation is scheduled to begin in September and will take approximately 3-4 weeks. That time frame could change as this is a weather-sensitive project.
Once the turf work is complete, the track surface will be laid and striped (also weather-sensitive).
We expect some rain in September and October so an estimated final completion date has not been established.
June, 2019: Summer Construction Activities Begin
Crescent Valley High School will have an artificial turf field installed and track resurfaced and the area will be closed to the public during construction.
Additional summer work includes the replacement of the boiler.
- The CVHS track and infield will be closed to the public from June 21 through November 15.
- Athletic practices will be relocated to other sites on the CV campus for the fall season.
- Home football games will be played at Corvallis High School.
February, 2019: Initial site investigations and finalizing designs
Initial site investigations are underway, including topographical survey, hazardous material survey, geotechnical soil borings, seismic evaluation, and wetlands evaluation. Additionally, designs are being finalized for the field improvements and boiler replacement. Pivot Architecture is beginning work with the Site Team on initial planning and design. The Design Advisory Committee members and Site Team are being finalized.
Next quarter, Gerding Builders will receive subcontractor bids for the field improvements and boiler replacement. The boiler replacement will be completed summer 2019. Field improvements are scheduled to begin summer 2019 and to be completed in fall 2019.
