Project Update: St. Mary’s Gymnasium & Fine Arts Building

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Work on St. Mary’s Gymnasium and Fine Arts Center is moving forward.  This week the subcontractors continued to install the rough wiring, mechanical systems, and insulation.  The drywall crew has started to sheetrock the classrooms.  Things are bit dark inside with a roof on, and no light fixtures just yet, but that’s just a normal stage of the project.   It will make for a dramatic difference in another couple of weeks.

Three story masonry building is up and has the metal roof installed.

Mail Tribune: Salvation Army to dedicate renovated church building

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

March 23, 2012

The Salvation Army will dedicate its renovated church at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 24, at 304 Beatty St., Medford.

The church was built in the 1920s for the Seventh-day Adventists and became the Salvation Army church later in the 20th century.

In 2007, a broken water pipe damaged the property so badly that church services could no longer be held in the building.

In September 2011, Batzer Construction began the renovation project…,

Press Release: Batzer Construction Completes Work at the The Salvation Army Church

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

100dpi-5March 8, 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“Batzer Construction Completes Work at the Salvation Army Church”

Medford, OR, (March 8, 2012) – Renovation of The Salvation Army Church on Beatty Street will be completed this week.  Originally built in the 1920’s for the Seventh Day Adventists, in 2007 water from a broken pipe damaged the property so badly that church services could no longer be held in the building. As a result, it became more of a storage unit than the active church and social hall The Salvation Army is known for having.  The neighborhood had lost a valuable resource so The Salvation Army began to make plans to bring back the church.

A grant from the Medford Urban Renewal Agency brought in the final funding piece for the project and in September of 2011, Batzer Construction began demolition of the old church.  They also removed an aging building from the property as part of The Salvation Army’s overall plan to create a community garden.  The entire building was reframed from the ground up in December, and since then work has continued on the inside.

Construction has progressed on schedule and the finishing touches including new front doors are being installed the first week in March.  The new building has a very similar plan to the old one with commercial kitchen and dining hall on the lower level and sanctuary, rest-rooms, nursery, and storage space on the upper level.  The new building is 6,194 square feet, about 140 square feet bigger than the old building.  According to Russ Batzer, president of Batzer Construction, “The building has energy efficient windows and lighting, excellent insulation, and durable finishes to help it last for a century of service.”

While the church was under construction, Captain Martin Cooper of The Salvation Army held church services at the organization’s Thrift Store. In spite of the finishing touches that still need to be made on the church, worship services were held Sunday in the new sanctuary. A dedication celebration is set for 1 p.m., Saturday, March 24 with Salvation Army regional officers and a Salvation Army band scheduled to be in town for the event.

Batzer Moves Donated Playgrounds to Six Locations

PB150708Batzer Construction Transports Playground Equipment to Multiple OnTrack Sites

Donated Equipment to Improve Lives for Kids of Recovering Parents

MEDFORD, OR—Monday, November 14th, at 9am Batzer Construction trucks delivered playground equipment donated by Kid Time to six OnTrack sites. From play structures to a frontier play house, digger tools, picnic tables and more, the equipment is intended to improve the lives of children whose parents are in recovery from addictions and related behaviors.

Batzer Construction, Inc. donated the logistics, manpower, trucks and equipment to pick up the playground items from the former Kid Time facility located behind the old Mouse Lodge on Ross Lane. The construction firm delivered the different pieces to the Whole Family Project on Holly Street, emergency housing facilities on King and 11th streets, the Home Program, the Dad’s Program and Stevens Place Apartments. Volunteers from the Dad’s Program assisted Batzer Construction  employees in the moving process.

“This is a cooperative community project,” said Andy Batzer, a Board Member of Kid Time and the Vice President of Batzer Construction. “The goal is to create a positive and safe environment for children whose parents are learning new life skills.”

According to Sue Densmore, OnTrack’s Outreach and Development Director, the project gained the support of several community partners and highlights the collaboration among many agencies and businesses, including the Batzer Construction Inc., Kid Time, the Family Nurturing Center, CASA and OnTrack.

Densmore also acknowledged the Medford Chamber Leadership Class who in 2006 raised the financing for the playground equipment, and she made note of the Medford Rotary Club who recently donated money to cover the purchase of indoor equipment for Kid Time.

“Our OnTrack families are learning how to parent, bond and play together,” said Densmore. “Meanwhile, our project partners have come together to model how communities are supposed to work. As a result, this project and the playground equipment will become a great a source of joy. Thanks to everyone who is making a difference in so many lives.”

OnTrack is a chemical dependency treatment center in Medford, Oregon. While services focus on recovery from addictions, its programs result in restored lives, re-created families and renewed hope for abandoned and neglected children.

Project Update: Salvation Army

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

We’re well underway on renovating the Salvation Army Chapel on Beatty Street in Medford. It’s big renovation that will have a tremendously positive outcome for the community.  The Mail Tribune wrote a great article last summer that outlined the project goals.

….the church will double as a community center that assists in the neighborhood’s renewal.

“We want the church to become a resource for the community to use. This park is without any kind of community neighborhood center,” Agee said, “We’re really trying to build a community here … and we’re trying to do that with this barbecue.”

Much of the Salvation Army’s church on Beatty has begun to show its age. Agee said the roof needs replacing and the building needs to be retrofitted to withstand earthquakes and is in need of a wheelchair ramp.

….When it finishes renovations, the army would like to be able to provide free meals from that kitchen once or twice a week. And that’s just the inside — outside the vegetable garden and playground will also soon be works in progress.

…there are numerous repair projects evident (in the neighborhood) despite the poor economy and that the neighborhood is experiencing rehabilitation.

From “Salvation Army Looks to Reap Benefits of Liberty Park Site” by Mat Wolf July 23, 2011

The renovations were designed by Straus & Seibert Architects from Medford.  As of last week, the demolition is nearly complete, and we have started on rebuilding the roof and ceilings.  Below are some photos from mid September during the demolition.

While the renovations will update nearly every aspect of the building, the cross and well known brick backdrop will remain.

The project is expected to be complete in March of 2012.
