Lake Oswego Municipal Facilities and Space Planning Analysis
The firm of SERA Architects was hired to look at both building conditions and the internal space needs for City Hall, the Library, Adult Community Center, the City’s four fire stations, the Indoor Tennis Facility and the WEB. The City’s Maintenance Yard is being evaluated separately.

  1. Project Introduction and Summary
  2. Facilities Assessments
    1. City Hall - City Hall has multiple significant building deficiencies with the building’s envelope, structural requirements for seismic events, security systems, and out-dated mechanical and electrical systems. A previous remediation study of the building indicated that replacing the building would be less expensive than fixing the existing deficiencies.
    2. Library - The primary building deficiencies with the Library building are ageing mechanical systems, an electrical system at capacity, flooring and window problems, and various accessibility constraints for persons with disabilities.
    3. Adult Community Center - The Adult Community Center’s deficiencies include ageing plumbing, mechanical and electrical systems, a leaky roof, and various accessibility constraints for persons with disabilities.
    4. West End Building - The West End Building’s primary deficiencies are with the emergency access systems in the building’s west wing, ageing mechanical systems, the building’s envelope, and various accessibility constraints for persons with disabilities.
    5. Indoor Tennis Center - Various accessibility constraints for persons with disabilities are the primary issues with the condition of the Tennis Center facility. There is also some tree damage to the roof and gutter systems.
    6. Main Fire Station 214 - Given its relatively recent construction, there are few building deficiencies with this fire station. The primary deficiencies are the roof and flashing, various accessibility constraints for persons with disabilities, and the structure does not meet current seismic standards for an emergency response facility.
    7. South Shore Fire Station 212 - This fire station is older and out-of-date with the primary building deficiencies being with the mechanical and electrical systems, the envelope, various accessibility constraints for persons with disabilities, and the structure does not meet current seismic standards for an emergency response facility. .
    8. Jean Road Fire Station 211 - This fire station is of newer construction and thus, there are relatively few deficiencies with the building. Accessibility constraints for persons with disabilities and the structure not meeting current seismic standards for an emergency response facility are the primary deficiencies.
    9. Westlake Fire Station 214 - This fire station is of newer construction and thus, there are few deficiencies with this building that need attention. The primary deficiencies are accessibility constraints for persons with disabilities and the structure does not meet current seismic standards for an emergency response facility.
