Oregon State Hospital

About This Project

Carlson participated on the new Oregon State Hospital in Salem, Oregon which included the renovation and remodel of the historic Krikbride Building.

This project brings the long-awaited replacement of Oregon’s 127-year-old State Hospital in Salem. New construction includes a three-story, structural steel building to house patient housing, staff offices, treatment rooms and recreation areas. The historic “J” building (Kirkbride) will be partially demolished, with some parts being restored. Once complete, the hospital will house 620 beds within 800,000 sq ft.

Carlson’s client on this project was CH2M Hill. Contacts at CH2M Hill are Mr. Dan Dowell, PE and Ron Monteferrante. The general contractor was Hoffman Construction and Mike Erdman was the project superintendent. The project design team included: KPFF Structural Engineers and PBS Environmental.
