Local Architect Chosen to Design New Camas Ridge

Eugene firm joins the Camas Ridge Elementary School project team

Planning for the new Camas Ridge Elementary School is underway and the project’s architect team has been selected. The chosen architect has extensive local experience including designing four Eugene School District 4J school buildings.

Local architect firm Pivot Architecture has leveraged over 60 years of experience to design and build projects across Lane County, Oregon, and beyond. Pivot’s numerous recognizable local projects include the Aurora building in downtown Eugene, the City of Eugene’s Willamette Street fire station and police headquarters, McKenzie Ranger Station, and Lane Community College’s Center for Learning. The district worked with Pivot to design the new Howard and River Road/El Camino del Río Elementary Schools, which opened in 2016 and 2017, and Holt and Chávez Elementary Schools, which opened in 2004.

The firm’s proposal was ranked highest by the selection committee after a review of proposals from several firms and interviews with top candidates. Contract negotiations were completed successfully and the school board approved awarding the contract to the selected architect team.

With the architect identified, the district will next bring on a construction manager/general contractor to kick off the project. The district, architect, and construction manager/general contractor will work as a team throughout the design and construction process with subcontractors selected through a publicly advertised, competitive solicitation process.

The new Camas Ridge Elementary School building is funded by the 2018 school bond measure. Voters in Eugene School District 4J resoundingly passed the bond measure in November 2018 to fund capital improvements for 4J schools including the construction of three new school buildings for North Eugene High School, Edison Elementary School, and Camas Ridge Elementary School. Bond funds will be used to repair schools, improve security, update technology and learning materials, support career technical education, and more. Every school will benefit.
