Relocate Logistics Center
What Prompted the Need to Relocate?
TVF&R’s Logistics Services are currently housed at the North Operating Center in Aloha. Originally built in 1979, this campus was recently sold to Washington County. District leaders recognized the need to centrally locate these services within our boundaries to better serve the entire District.
TVF&R’s original plan was to build a new facility. However, the opportunity to purchase and retrofit an existing facility allowed for potential cost and time savings. The 40,000-square-foot building is located on 4.5 acres at 9991 SW Avery St. in Tualatin.
Logistics Service Functions
The District’s logistics service functions based at this facility will include: supply warehouse, fleet maintenance, communications, facilities maintenance, and administrative staff.
The Logistics Service Center will be built to essential facility standards. Essential facilities are buildings that support functions necessary for post-earthquake response and recovery. These facilities typically include police stations, fire stations, 911 dispatch centers, hospitals, schools, power-generating facilities, etc.
The building will feature seismic upgrades that meet current codes to withstand a major earthquake. In addition to staff workspaces, the building will have a meeting room, common work and storage areas, break rooms, and a workout room. It will be designed to operate for a minimum of 30 years.
