ARI served as General Contractor and EIFs installation experts on this commercial renovation and restoration project. We acknowledge all of the fine professionals at Tigard City Hall and thank them for this opportunity. It was a terrific experience working with the city.
This two-phase project was a big success from start to finish, beginning with extensive planning and coordination with the property owner and the architect. With strategic planning and management of subcontractors like landscapers, electricians, framers, ironworkers, and sheet metal and roofing installers, permitting and execution were completed over the fall and following summer on a timeline that worked well for the City.
These two busy buildings connect with a large steel canopy that was redesigned and restructured entirely during Phase One. Tigard City Hall staff worked uninterrupted throughout, and public access to the buildings was maintained at all times.
By removing the landscaping around the first building, the existing EIFS system was cleaned and repaired. Sealants were removed and high impact mesh was installed to protect the upper portions of the system. The existing entrance canopy between the buildings was stripped down to the steel structure and storefront windows were removed and framed in. With the new canopy tied into the buildings and the EIFS system tied into the new structure, the canopy was safely rebuilt with added steel a new TPO roof, a skylight and DEFS finish underneath. Best of all for busy buildings and city business, the canopy project was completed without shutting down safe access to the front doors even once.
The final finishes include a new color scheme that dramatically changed the look and feel of the buildings. As part of the new scheme, upper sheet metal roofs were replaced and upgraded,
existing commercial window frames were recoated in new metallic finishes and the exterior EIFS system featured a high-performance elastomeric coating. New silicone sealants completed the watertight system.
Phase Two execution was completed during the following summer. The second building was finished and all of the exterior lightings was upgraded to energy efficient LED fixtures. With its fresh new colors and warm, inviting entrance, Tigard City Hall stands as one of the finest examples of restoration of a 20-year-old EIFS system. These beautiful buildings illustrate how a structure can be brought back to life and give the community beautiful, functional buildings for decades to come.
