Pearl Condo remodeling and more

In the past several years, we have completed multiple condominium remodels in the Pearl District, West Hills of Portland, and on the Willamette River.  The remodels have been extensive and challenging in many respects.  Your neighbors are closer above and below and we need to be respectful of noise and inconvenience.  We want to make sure you’re satisfied, not only with the final product, but also with the process.  Often we needed to create ways to get materials to the upper floors with an undersized elevator: Keeping halls neat; dealing with debris; informing the property manager of a daily schedule to assure the elevators were always lined for protection.  Even with those special challenges, we have been successful in high end quality remodels – completing them on time and on budget.

Many of the remodels have been traditional in taste on the inside and then a few of them very modern and contemporary.  Our work is strictly limited to the inside of the buildings – anything exterior work would fall to the property management company in all most all cases.

These are projects we thoroughly enjoy.  Just as in whole house remodel, from framing to finish we aim to please.  Thanks for considering us in your next project.


When Duty Calls

Kerry Cooper was an employee of John Hasenberg & Associates, an architectural firm that Petrina Construction works with regularly.  He died unexpectedly from a brain aneurysm.  He’s been a friend and colleague for many years and we’ve all been pretty distraught in the office.

Kerry, his wife Tammy, and his three young children were in the middle of a large scale home remodel adding a second story with sufficient bedrooms and an additional bathroom for the family.

When a tragedy strikes a family member so dear to our community, we need to step up.

We know the best way to honor Kerry is to support his family.  Finishing Kerry’s remodel is the best way we know how to do that.

Petrina Construction is working with Kerry’s good friend, Dietrich Wieland, his wife Angie, Marcelle Hanks, and a host of others, who are driving the project forward.  We are volunteering our time and resources – coming together with sub contractors, suppliers, and other friends of the Cooper family. We’re putting in carpet soon, and are excited to finish what Kerry so passionately started.

We miss Kerry, he was a part of our lives every day (our office is in the same building as his), and it’s hard to imagine that he won’t be walking down the stairs to say hello.

If you knew Kerry, or would simply like to lend a hand, here is a specific way you can help:

  • Money can be donated to “Friends of Kerry Cooper & Family” at any US Bank.  Account #153664240220.  Tradesmen are donating time and donating or deeply discounting materials, so know that your cash donations can go a long way to completing this project.
  • Whether you worked directly with Kerry or not, we’re hoping that you will join Petrina Construction in supporting a family that has suffered a great loss.

    In memory of Kerry, our thoughts and efforts go out to Tammy and the rest of the family.
