Hood River County School District Bond Program

We are currently managing this complex, multiple site, simultaneous project bond program that addresses significant needs at every district facility. In order to stretch the bond dollars as far as possible we have developed a comprehensive program that includes eight separate bid packages, two design firms, and four different contractors using three different project delivery methods. The project scope includes a new replacement elementary school, new STEAM addition at Wy’east Middle School, two seismic upgrade projects, major HVAC upgrades at several facilities, district-wide technology and security upgrades, modernization at the high school, athletic field upgrades as well as modernizing the alternative school facility and the district office. The scope also includes a long list of deferred maintenance items at every facility. Our project team has developed a comprehensive budgeting and cost forecasting process that gives all the stakeholders accurate, real time information on the cost detail of each individual project while also showing how each project affects the overall master bond budget. This tool has been invaluable in helping make solid plans and good decisions. One of the ways we’ve helped the District stretch their funds so far is our extensive experience maximizing the complicated SB1149 grant and Oregon Energy Trust incentive programs. We’ve also assisted the district in obtaining and managing multiple grants for seismic upgrades.
