CF Tigard Elementary

The 72,000 sq.ft. elementary school included demolition of the existing 82-year-old building to make way for the new state-of-the-art facility. Stearns’ cost-effective structural design assistance and value-engineering are credited with providing innovative solutions to potential cost overruns and scheduling delays. Stearns proposed an alternate method of allowing certain critical elements to proceed before concluding a conventional bidding process. This allowed for an aggressive steel schedule to meet the project’s strict budgetary guidelines. Stearns design-build approach was a key factor in bringing the project to successful completion two months early.
