Completed Lunch & Learn Webinar Trainings:

April 2, 2021ADA Ramps - Saving Money While Building Them Right

Speaker: Cody Stone, EI

Description: In the Summer of 2018 Keller Associates was under contract with Lane Community College to design and manage the construction of an American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramp and parking lot improvements project across their campus. With a set of plans drawn to scale from several aerial drone photos, Keller and the contractor set out to improve 28 curb ramps across 8 parking lots, all without survey. Throughout the presentation we’ll discuss the challenges we encountered and what we learned from them, as well as the financial impacts of a design-build project.

April 23, 2021 -Sewer Rehabilitation Under Water And Through Critical Areas

Speakers: Kim Staheli, PhD, PE, and David Scott, PE

Description: King County’s 4,000 foot Enatai Interceptor sewer was built in the 1960s around the shoreline of Lake Washington and along adjacent slough/wetlands. Significant condition deficiencies were identified, and rehabilitation has been included as part of planned regional conveyance improvements. Design is complete with bidding due mid-2021. This presentation describes the condition assessment, alternatives analysis, and final design. The presentation will also explore the complex environmental/permitting constraints, community impacts and constructability considerations of this unique project. 

May 7, 2021 - Design-Build Lessons Learned at the Columbia Boulevard WWTP

Speakers: Gordon Munro, PE and Hunter Bennett-Daggett, PE

Description: The wash water system at Columbia Boulevard Wastewater Treatment Plant supports critical process operations but was severely corroded and needed replacement. Challenges included difficulty accessing the pipes, the need to maintain continuous operation, and the lack of record drawings. Pre-design indicated a significant risk of construction changes in the project, and a lump sum design-build delivery method was selected to mitigate project risk. This presentation will give an overview of how design-build was selected, discuss the innovative piping materials used, and summarize lessons learned.

May 14, 2021 - Nature and People: the City of Eugene’s approach to natural area management

Speakers: Shelly Miller and Jesse Cary-Hobbs

Description: The City of Eugene’s 4400 acres of natural areas include waterways, ridgeline, wetlands and neighborhood natural areas.  Join Shelly Miller and Jesse Cary-Hobbs with Eugene Parks and Open Space to learn about how the City manages these lands for conservation, recreation, and ecosystem services including stormwater.

May 21, 2021 - Temporary Shelter Sites for the Homeless on City Property

Speakers: Regan Watjus, Marina Wrensch, and Erik de Buhr 

Description: In partnership with a local non-profit agency and in response to the critical need for more shelter in the midst of a global pandemic, Eugene is working to open six new alternative shelter sites on City property for people experiencing unsheltered homelessness. Five sites are in City parks and one is in a City right-of-way. While a significant undertaking under a short timeline, once completed the project will help meet urgent community needs by helping more than 100 individuals have more access to sanitation, as well as structure and support to help stabilize their lives.

August 14, 2020 - Hydraulic Design of Coyote Creek Bridges

Speaker: Gary Wolff, PE, D.WRE, CFM

Description: Lane County is currently working on the design of road improvements for Territorial Highway located southwest of Eugene. As part of the project a 1,500-foot section of the road will be raised where it crosses the floodplain of Coyote Creek. This talk will present the hydraulic design of the road crossing that included two-dimensional (2D) hydraulic modeling. Advances in the modeling software are making the use of 2D modeling an increasingly common practice for the hydraulic design of bridges where complex hydraulic conditions are known to exist.
