Livermore Architecture & Engineering developed the architectural and structural design of PGE’s new Sherwood Line Training Center. For over 20 years, the lineman training program has used an outdoor yard for training their apprentices. The new facility will provide a large indoor training area with a 50-foot high roof and will allow training activities year-round in all weather. Power poles will be set up inside the building and will be wired by the trainees. A mezzanine level will give instructors an excellent vantage point to observe the activity.
Also housed in the building are three classrooms, a breakroom, and several offices. The design features a clean, minimal, industrial look that is consistent with the linemans’ work ethic and philosophy. Touches such as the power pole columns at the front entry play homage to the linemans’ work.
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.
