State Accident Insurance Fund (SAIF) Renovation Project
The SAIF Salem Campus’s multi-site renovation focused on improving efficiency in office layout, seismic updates, flood control, and created an inviting space for the community of Salem. Otak CPM served as owner’s representative for SAIF. The design encouraged interdisciplinary collaboration, provided open layouts, and reflected the SAIF vision of changing the way occupants experience their buildings. The design upgrades allow for a significant reduction in utility cost, which will allow SAIF to reallocate money from utility costs to pay off the building at a faster rate.
In line with Otak’s commitment to community enrichment and involvement, we engaged Oregon State University engineering students in this project. By asking them to respond to a request for proposal, the activity helped them prepare for an upcoming Associated Schools of Construction competition. It also offered them an opportunity for hands-on experience in the construction industry.
