Project Description

Tina Clegg Dekum Head Start

The Tina Clegg Head Start program serves a vibrant community and young children in North Portland whose site was slated for a major upgrade:  new modular classroom building accompanied with new parking, grounds, playground, landscaping and trash enclosure.

The project touched many scopes and the PBI team orchestrated our own crew and numerous specialty subcontractors to build the site from the ground up.  The site needed new underground utilities and upgrades to the existing, older building in addition to working alongside the modular manufacturer to ensure the safe delivery and hookup to the new modular.  Plumbing, Electrical, Concrete, Paving, Fencing…all scopes were heavily engaged throughout.  Upon completion, the new Head Start site boasts a new paved parking lot, safe-secure-large trash enclosure, top notch play area, beautiful landscaping, and a gorgeous new modular with all the bells and whistles for children.  The site will make learning fun for all.
