With footings in place, the Ixtapa Restaurant in Hood River is ready to rise out of the ground.

Fire DamageOn January 28, 2018, the building where our office was located, the Macadam Center, was completely destroyed in a fire. We have not been able to go into the building, and from the exterior it appears that the floor and roof in the area of our office space collapsed. Everything that was in our office was unrecoverable. The fire happened after hours and there were no injuries. It was an unexpected blow and took us completely by surprise. There were many other businesses in the building that have been displaced.

Fortunately, all of our electronic data was backed up to an off-site location and is safe, and we did not lose any of our work. After about a week of diligent work by our I.T. consultants, setting up new computers and a server, we were back in business. We are happy to report that we are back up to full production capacity. We truly appreciate the incredible offers of help and support that we received from so many of you. It means so much to us to know that there are so many generous people and companies in our industry willing to lend us a hand. Thank you so much. IMG_8861While the fire was a major disruption for us, we are happy to announce that we have moved into a new office space at the Crown Plaza Building in downtown Portland, Oregon. The space was move-in ready but we will be customizing it in the coming months. We look forward to showing it off - feel free to stop by! Our new address is 1500 SW 1st Avenue, Suite 240, Portland, Oregon 97201.

 

We are happy to announce that drawings for the Ixtapa Restaurant in Hood River, Oregon, were recently submitted for permit. The new 6400 square foot restaurant will have seating for about 220 patrons in the main dining area, bar, and outdoor seating area. The building was designed in a style that fuses elements of Pacific Northwest and Mexican architecture. The exterior of the building will be clad with stucco, stone veneer, and tile roofing. Interiors will feature a warm palette of wood trim, stained concrete floors, oversized columns, and other features.

Construction has started on the expansion to R+L Carrier's transfer facility in northwest Portland. The 24,000 SF expansion nearly doubles the area of R+L's unloading/loading space and will allow for better logistics and improved workflow. Site improvements in the form of parking reconfiguration and additional landscaping are part of the project.
Livermore Architecture & Engineering supported Joseph Hughes Construction on this project with architecture and structural engineering, as well as management of civil engineering and landscape architecture.

Livermore Architecture & Engineering, Inc. is delighted to announce they have relocated their office to 5125 SW Macadam Avenue, Suite 200, in the John’s Landing area as of October 1st, 2016. Spurred by recent growth, the firm is excited to have moved to a self-designed larger space, featuring multiple conference rooms, a wrap-around deck, and a collaborative, light-filled, open office space. Livermore has greatly enjoyed their time at their 140 SW Arthur location, but anticipates their new offices at will enable the firm to further expand, as needs dictate.

Due to firm growth, Livermore A&E will be moving to expansive new offices in John's Landing, custom designed by us. Stay tuned for further updates, the unveiling and future events! IMG_1320IMG_1323IMG_1325

Colleen spoke about her experiences as a female structural engineer and then showed the girls images from some of the complicated 3D models that Livermore A&E has recently developed for its clients. After answering their questions and helping out with a hands-on engineering activity that involved a zip line, Colleen came away feeling energized and looks forward to participating again in the future!
