Cascade Converting Plant
After Otak did master planning for the Scappoose Airport Industrial District, Cascades Holdings selected us to provide civil site and architectural services for their new plant at the Scappoose Airport Industrial Park. Large raw paper rolls manufactured at Cascades’ site in St. Helens, Oregon, will be shipped to the warehouse, converted into various paper products, and then shipped to distributors. The warehouse has two phases of development: Phase 1 includes 290,000 square feet of light industrial and office space, and Phase 2 adds 300,000 square feet of warehouse and distribution center space.
One of the significant challenges on this project was the compressed schedule. The equipment being used in the converting process was scheduled to arrive in December 2016; however, the design and permitting process was not started until April 2016. Through a collaboration with the City of Scappoose and the State of Oregon, we were able to fast-track the design and construction process so that the equipment had a place to be stored upon arrival.
