Carleton Hart was recently commissioned to renovate the Spencer House, a housing development located in the heart of Central Beaverton. Within walking distance to many amenities, Spencer House’s neighborhood is considered the second most walkable neighborhood in Beaverton. Built in 1971, Spencer House’s 48 units are comprised of 12 one-bedroom apartments, 24 two-bedroom apartments, and 12 three-bedroom apartments.
The scope of work included the building envelope (replacing existing siding, windows, doors, roof, gutters, and downspouts; repairing exterior stairs and decks), interiors (creating accessible units; replacing cabinets, counter tops, sinks, closet doors; and providing new hot water heaters in individual units), and site work (repairing sidewalks, improving walkways throughout the site, and repairing sewer lines). The resulting building has greatly improved accessibility, sustainability and livability for tenants and the community.
