Go Hops!

Posted by

The HDG summer picnic this year was at Ron Tonkin Field, where we took in a rousing Hillsboro Hops game against the Eugene Emeralds.  Hops won!  Whoop! Whoop!  The Hops executives were very friendly and helpful, the picnic was delicious, and the facility was amazing.  What a fun night!

Watching “The Vera” (Riverplace Parcel 3) take shape is exciting! Team members from HDG were on site at The Vera last week, inspecting stormwater planters and other HDG-designed civil engineering site development elements. The project is moving along very well! The 203 unit affordable housing development is owned by Bridge Housing, with numerous financial partners. Ankrom Moisan is the project architect. Hoffman Construction is the general contractor.

18th & Salmon Breaks Ground!

The 18th & Salmon project broke ground on Thursday with a nice celebration!  Owned by Greystar and designed by SERA Architects, HDG is providing civil engineering services for this new mixed-use building, which will include housing and retail space.  Hoffman Construction is the general contractor.

HDG’s scope of civil engineering services included design for the rehabilitation of 260-lf of the 72” diameter Tanner Creek Sewer using steel liner plates. The sewer line was originally constructed in 1916 and runs through the northern portion of the site, right under the new building footprint.

Paper Airplane Break

HDG took a quick break Thursday for an in-house paper airplane competition that included our own handmade masterpieces with prizes for the most creative, the furthest flight, and the longest airtime.  While our paper airplanes did fly, perhaps our next activity will be to take in a few videos on how to master the art of fold-n-fly planes – we didn’t even come close to any records!  According to the National Day Calendar, the paper airplane flight distance record is 226′ 10″ and the flight time record is 29.2 seconds.

Tug of War Anyone?

We didn’t think it was possible, but Meisje gave out twice her normal dose of cheerfulness this morning, all while sharing her toy with everyone, of course.  Watch out.  It’s a trap.  Sharing equals playing, and she can play for a long time!
