HOC and ATTC Projects can be Viewed Online

The activity at two Linn-Benton Community College construction sites in Lebanon is about to increase, and anyone interested in monitoring the progress can watch it happen on the college web site.

Site prep and foundation work are being completed for the final buildings at the Advanced Transportation Technology Center and the Healthcare Occupations Center buildings. Walls will start to go up soon.

The construction progress is being recorded each day, and the progress is compressed in a brief time-lapse that can be viewed at linnbenton.edu/building-projects by clicking on either the ATTC or HOC link. The site also includes the latest updates on all LBCC building projects.

The $7.9 million, 37,000-square-foot ATTC project is being constructed by T.S. Gray Construction and Wildish Construction. It is on budget and is expected to be completed by the end of summer 2016.

New construction at the ATTC will include an improved home for the Heavy Equipment Diesel program and the creation of an Innovation Center will provide space to train working mechanics to work on alternative fuel vehicles, in addition to providing a space for meeting focused on how to increase community benefit from new propulsion options for commercial and private transportation.

The construction contract for the $16 million, 42,000-square-foot Healthcare Occupations Center was recently awarded to Triplett-Wellman Contractors. Also on budget, the project is expected to be completed by spring of 2017.

The new HOC, located adjacent to COMP-NW medical school on the Samaritan Health Campus in Lebanon, will enable consolidation of all of LBCC’s medical programs in a single location, and create opportunities for partnerships with nearby medical training and healthcare providers.

All contracts were awarded based on a competitive bid process.

The projects were made possible by voter approval of a construction bond measure in 2014. Along with state and federal grants, the construction program funded by those bonds also includes the expansion of the Benton Center in Corvallis, and in modernizing space at the Albany campus, with a focus on improving facilities for job-related programs.
