Multnomah County East Facility

Move of county agencies into new 90,000 square foot facility.

Goal: Move several Multnomah County agencies into a brand new building with minimal disruption to county employees or the public.


  • Managed all aspects of the moves, completing as much of the projects as possible over weekends in order to minimize disruption to employees and the public.
  • Managed safety issues relating to off-limits or under-construction areas, as well as parking plans, keys, and alarms.
  • Handled corrections to employees’ workstations, moved furniture to accommodate their needs, and managed computer, phone, and network issues through the appropriate organizations.
  • Coordinated delivery of new furniture with the series of moves of existing furnishings and equipment from previous locations.
  • Liquidated old furnishings through intra-agency donations, recycling, and disposal.

Features: Maintained the integrity of records before, during, and after the move of the record storage area of the Primary Care Clinic. The sundeleaf team pulled every file from the existing shelves, stocked them onto rolling bookshelf carts, relocated them, and placed them into the new file system at the new clinic in the exact order they were packed, ready for the staff on Monday morning.

Quote: “The success of this difficult multi-staged move defines [sundeleaf’s] philosophy of being the total facilities planning partner for their clients." Doug Nelson, senior project manager for Vickers/Foster and Associates, CPM Inc., construction management firm for the project.
