Netarts-Oceanside Sanitary District & Rural Fire Protection District
Project Type: Ground-Up Construction for the Netarts-Oceanside Sanitary District and Rural Fire Protection District
Location: Tillamook County, Oregon
Working on the coast takes a special level of experience and preparation. With massive rainstorm conditions and wind gusts in excess of 115mph, any work in a temporary condition must withstand gale-force winds and pounding rain. Additionally, the end product needs to keep the rain out for the long run, which means details count. We used high-grade stainless for all exposed metal parts, special exterior coatings to protect against the salty air, tight sealing doors and windows, etc. The designer on the project was a civil engineering-focused firm, so we brought in one of our building envelope consulting partners. The team advised on waterproofing product selection, insulation and vapor barrier detailing, and roofing recommendations to make this building tight as a drum.
