Medford Food Co-op

Historic 949 S. Riverside, Medford, ORMedford Food Co-op Architectural Design by Gary CapernaNewly Renovated Medford Food Co-op Project Details
In 2011, The Medford Food Co-op worked with Batzer Construction to radically remodel their building on Riverside Avenue into unique grocery retail space.The 1927 historic building was initially designed as a farmhouse by renowned local architect Frank Clark. It’s had many remodels over the years converting it to a hotel, restaurant, offices, daycare, and it was empty for the last 5 years. The decades of remodeling and turnover left many structural issues to solve.The biggest challenge was opening the interior spaces to create the large retail space for efficient Architect Gary Caperna and structural engineer Phil McCullough chose to use steel beams to replace all the interior structures that were removed, allowed the the store to be vaulted and let in daylight from the dormer window on the roof. The daylight helps reduce the need for lighting throughout much of the day. Energy efficient light fixtures were used for the needed lighting and insulation was increased throughout the building.A storm water “bioswale” in front of the store is planted with native plants and trees to help absorb storm water rather than it flooding into the city sewer system. “Keeping the natural landscape of the property was intentional and different than most retail properties in Medford,” according to Batzer Construction architect, Gary Caperna. “Co-op patrons are going to love it.”To date, the Medford Food Co-op has been awarded nearly $10,000 of incentive money for the energy efficiency measures for lighting and refrigeration.

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

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

100dpi-5March 8, 2012

“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.
