The Challenge

Jacksons Food Stores, Inc. headquartered in Meridian, Idaho, was founded in Caldwell, Idaho in 1975 as a single service station. Jacksons has grown to be a nationally recognized chain of over 230+ Chevron, Shell, and Texaco branded convenience stores in 6 western states. All company operations currently employ approximately 3,000 associates.

Barghausen was contracted by Jacksons Food Stores, Inc. (PacWest Energy LLC) for the redevelopment of its store in Milwaukie, OR. The project included:

  • The demolition of the existing fuel canopy and convenience store, while retaining the underground storage tanks in place 
  • Soil excavation, removed to depths of up to 15 feet
  • Installation of a 20-foot high Lock + Load retaining along the north and east property boundary 
  • Construction of a new convenience store and fuel canopy 
  • Coordination with Oregon Department of Transportation and Clackamas County Public Works for off-site improvements 
  • Installation of site improvements and landscape

A project of this magnitude, of course, came with its own challenges. For one, there were extremely poor soils on this existing store site (a gas station with a convenience store) and a 20-foot drop-off at the northeast corner. In addition, the four existing underground storage tanks had to remain, as well as the driveways serving the site. And to add complexity, a design review was required.
