Learning & Libations: Engineering Community Resilience Through New School Designs

February 15, 2017, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The Beaverton School District is executing a $680 million bond program approved by voters in May 2014. The District sponsored a community-wide effort to translate the concepts of the Oregon Resilience Plan into forward-thinking design criteria, which exceed code requirements for new school buildings. The seven new schools Beaverton is building will achieve seismic Risk Category IV for the structural components and they also contain features to support serving as temporary community shelters after a disaster. This Learning & Libations presentation will provide an overview of the School District’s $680 million Bond program, discuss the motivations for the resilience work, criteria selected, and cost impacts.
