The existing, one-story space at CommonGrounds Workplace was renovated into a two-story, high-end, shared workplace.

CommonGrounds Workplace

Location: Portland

Contractor: Anning-Johnson Co.

Architect: Myhre Group Architects

Team: International Union of Painters and Allied Trades, Plasterers Local 82, Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters, CWallA; Knez Building Materials Co., GTS Interior Supply, Spears Construction Supply, Armstrong World Industries, Grabber, Hamilton Drywall Products, SCAFCO Steel Stud Co., Trim-Tex, USG Building Systems

The scope of this project by Anning-Johnson was the first-floor renovation of the CommonGrounds Workplace, located in an eight-story, 86-unit condominium building in the Pearl District of Portland. It was originally built as a warehouse and converted in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

The existing, one-story space was renovated into a two-story, high-end, shared workplace as a service space for local businesses. The original size of 11,800 square feet was expanded to 14,500 square feet.

Anning-Johnson installed the K13 ceiling spray, fireproofing, structural and interior framing, GWB finishes, acoustic ceilings, doors and miscellaneous finish accessories.

Judges’ comment: “The work done preserving and finishing the original 1925 exposed concrete columns into the new design merges the historic construction into a modern space. Beautiful work.”
