Swinerton Helps Local School Build its very own Climbing Wall

Usually, Swinerton advises that people shouldn’t climb up the sides of the things they build. However, we’re turning that idea on its head for a change.

Chris Evans and Cameron Coleman, two Project Managers from Swinerton’s Portland office, have graciously volunteered their time to help teach students from local La Center High School how to build their very own rock climbing wall.

Their efforts were recently featured in Clark County Today, following along as Evans and Coleman volunteered their time teaching 15 students in an after-school class about the intricacies of designing, planning, and building the structure.

With a $100,000 budget – 80 percent of which is funded by a grant from The Swinerton Foundation – the students are working diligently to create a new climbing wall that can be a place for fun recreation and a new center for the school community.
