“It was a special pleasure to work with CIDA in developing concepts into plans and see those plans become reality. They never failed to accommodate our concerns and always demonstrated a professionalism that enables a smooth working relationship between owner, designer and builder.”
– Colonel Edward Fritz, Chairman Tabernacle Relocation Committee
The Salvation Army’s Portland Tabernacle Corps moved across the street to allow for connection to their adjacent Rose Center Senior Facility. The two structures remained separate buildings, however, CIDA designed for an ADA connection between the two buildings allowing for ease of access.
This colocation required the full remodel of an existing warehouse and auto repair shop into a chapel and multi-purpose space. The transformation of dingy concrete and stained wood structure to allow for the congregational gather was transformative. New wood cladding, soft colors and refinishing of the of the original wood beams and roof decking brought new life to the center.
