Public Agencies

Dividing line 1

Having worked with several different agencies across the Pacific Northwest, we have gained a great wealth of knowledge that helps in our planning, budgeting, and scheduling of each project. Wenaha Group understands how to navigate the complexities and intricacies that come with public agency work. Due to most agency work being task order oriented, we have set up a systematic approach that helps guide each task order to a successful completion. Communication is key to the success of any project, but when it comes to public agency work, it is paramount to establish a communication protocol early. Understanding who the stakeholders are, working closely with them and keeping them well informed are vitally important. We also understand the importance of ongoing operations, including interactions with the public, and how to plan and work around them without disruption.

Morrow County sought to update operations in a new county office facility that would complement the adjacent 1902 courthouse which is still in use. Wenaha Group facilitated a needs assessment to identify the workflow and space then managed the design process while being sensitive to the historic surroundings. Before construction started, Wenaha Group also assisted in the rezoning, replat and planning process. A contractor was selected who understood rural values and had a sense of the Heppner community. The new two-story, 11,216 square foot Bartholomew Administrative Building was completed in November 2015, and now houses county health, finance, special transportation services, juvenile services, and county court offices.

ProjectPark Improvements & Additions
RoleProject Manager
Value$1.8M
Completion2015

The first phase consisted of, but was not limited to, providing all materials, labor and equipment to make park entry improvements including site clearing, grubbing, grading, erosion control, storm water facilities, asphalt entry drives, curbing, lane markings, signs, water quality swales, catch basins, a dry well, landscaping, irrigation, post and cable fence, prefabricated booths with foundations, utilities and exterior customizations and miscellaneous site work. Work also included installation of site furnishings, owner-furnished Ventech ticket machines, entry gates, and signage.
The second phase included removal of three wood structures used for viewing or bridging the wetland within the park and replacing them with steel-framed structures on the modified existing concrete footings. Scheduling was an important factor as demolition of the elevated deck structures and reconstruction of piers can only occur when water levels in the wetland have receded enough to expose the concrete footings. Asphalt trails connecting these surfaces were also replaced with compacted gravel. The third phase consisted of demolishing the existing restroom facilities and then replacing them with four new, pre-engineered restroom buildings. Each restroom building consists of eight single-occupancy restrooms, associated utility connections, and adjacent landscaping. The park remained open during this process so coordination with park staff was critical.
