Relocation update — April 2012
The renovation of OCOM’s new campus and clinic in Old Town Chinatown continues – and continues to run ahead of schedule! The five floors of OCOM’s new home are at various stages of completion, and each day brings us closer to our September move.
These days, with the concrete and structural phase complete, the interior is where most of the work is focused: walls are being painted and light fixtures hung; the beautiful, nearly floor-to-ceiling windows facing the MAX line and looking west toward the Pearl District have been installed; doors, cabinets and sinks are going in the kitchen spaces and clinic rooms; and the downstairs entryway floor was recently stained a warm shade of red. Other highlights include:
- Interior cabinetry is 95 percent complete, including cabinets in bookstore, library, reception and treatment rooms
- Exterior waterproofing will be applied in early April; exterior painting will begin with dry weather
- The fifth floor roof membrane and insulation has been installed; green roof plantings and trays are dry weather-dependent
- Interior doors and hardware are 75 percent complete
- All windows, including in the ground floor storefront, have been installed
- Flooring installation begins mid-April and will be completed by the end of the month
- Interior painting is 90 percent complete
- Elevators are installed and operational
- HVAC is installed; LEED Gold standards testing begins this week
- Bathroom fixtures and finishes are all installed
