Gresham Barlow School District On-Call Work

After their successful passage of a $291 million bond measure in 2016, Gresham Barlow School District assigned Compass an on-call contract for land surveying services. Our first assignment includes providing topographic mapping of existing conditions at Gresham High School. The District plans to demolish and replace approximately 70% of the existing school, so starting with a complete, accurate understanding of the site and all its features is important. The full project will cost approximately $93.5 million. Reconstruction is scheduled to begin Summer 2017.
