BPAS_300_crop.jpgUSDA Forest Service,  Bend Administrative Site - Bend, Oregon 2011

The project site is 25 acres in size and had several existing buildings.  HWA provided topography and boundary surveys of the property, Master Grading and Utility Plans for phased development of the entire 25-acre site, detailed construction plans and specifications for construction of phase one site improvements (approximately 10 acres), construction cost estimating, and bidding and construction administration services.   The primary feature of phase one was a 46,000 square foot, 2-story office building constructed to serve as headquarters of the Deschutes National Forest and the Bend-Fort Rock Ranger District.  HWA designed a storm water system of infiltration ponds that helped the project be certified LEED-Gold by the US Green Building Council (USGBC).  Construction was completed in the fall of 2011 with total change orders less than 3% of the initial $8.5 million construction contract.

In June of 2010, HWA completed the construction plans and specifications for the Downtown District, Downtown Core, and Bus Route & Overly bid packages. These three contracts are nearing the end of construction and HWA has provided construction management services to the City of Bend. In total, the project includes the reconstruction of approximately 180 curb ramps. The ADA requirements for location of the new compliant curb ramps and landings required creative solutions for working in and around existing facilities, including walls, fences, utility poles, structures, and pedestrian crosswalk amenities.

In 2009, HWA designed and prepared construction documents for the City of Redmond's 5th Street Improvement Project that replaced roadway, sidewalks, intersections, eighty-eight (88) curb ramps, drainage facilities, a water main, and water meters along 15 blocks within the historic downtown district. HWA completed the project on an accelerated schedule – going from 15% design to 95% design in just five weeks. The rapid schedule was necessary to ensure that Redmond would qualify to receive ARRA funding for the project. The project was prepared using ODOT standards. HWA prepared construction plans, specifications, cost estimates, and curb ramp grading details. HWA also served as a sub consultant to W&H Pacific during the CE/CA phase of the project to provide engineering services, answer construction questions, respond to RFI's and assist with other tasks as needed. Construction was completed in July of 2010.

HWA was responsible for the design of all site improvements associated with the five-story, 130,000 square foot mixed-use building with underground parking at the intersection of two arterial streets in downtown Bend. Project required extensive relocation of existing utilities, arterial street improvements, and ADA compliance upgrades.

HWA engineered 4,800 lineal feet of major arterial street improvements that connected NW 19th Street to Highway 97 via the Maple Avenue Bridge. Design teamwork with City officials, the bridge engineer, and the traffic engineer, resulted in a collaborative effort that created a designed product for the northern transportation connection across the dry canyon in Redmond. Key elements included intersection design with Highway 97, utility relocations, bridge and approach design coordination, and right-of-way legal descriptions.

HWA prepared design drawings from conceptual design through construction drawings for this 120' diameter roundabout between two minor arterial streets. Services included design coordination with City of Bend engineering personnel, and roundabout road design to minimize right-of-way acquisition requirements while meeting required design standards.
