The first LEED-certified tea production facility in the country is right here in Lane County
Chambers Construction is nearing completion on the new Yogi Tea manufacturing facility in Eugene. The CEO of Yogi shared that “the 180,000 square-foot facility will reunite the 114 employees in the Eugene-Springfield area under one roof.” The finished project will be 187,000 square feet and aims to become the first LEED-certified tea production facility in the nation.
High-tech R&D in Douglas County
Chambers recently completed construction of the latest expansion of the Glide, Oregon campus for Caddock Electronics, a R & D leader in performance resistors. The 30,000 square foot, single-story structure was designed to match the first two buildings built for Caddock. Due to the manufacturing and prototyping work conducted a Caddock, a sizeable electrical service was brought to the site in Glide. Through weekly job meetings with the design team, the project schedule, critical path dates for owner supplied equipment and quality control on building systems were kept in the forefront of everyone involved the project. The opening of the facility marks the latest return of high-wage jobs to Douglas County. Caddock is a family owned and operated business in a competitive industry. Their commitment to their staff and standards for this project’s expansion are evident throughout the completed building.
Chambers Construction client, Eugene Civic Alliance, recently completed Phase 2 of the Civic Park Project.
This phase included a series of architectural renderings, providing a sense of the scale and scope of the new facilities and what it will mean for Eugene/Springfield.
The Civic Project fills an important need for field, court and gym space for kids in our community.
Our involvement on projects like Civic Park is meaningful for all of us at Chambers Construction. Many of our staff are deeply rooted in this community and our children have participated in Kidsports leagues for many years.
We understand the need for facilities that deliver quality and long-term value and we look forward to helping Eugene Civic Alliance realize its vision.
