Oregon Sustainability Center:
Something amazing is happening in Portland Oregon! SERA Architects, and Skanska Construction are designing a project that will be the first of its kind in the World. The Center will achieve triple net-zero performance in energy, water and wastewater management. It is designed to pursue the world’s most stringent green building criteria, the Cascadia Region Green Building Council’s Living Building Challenge™. This sort of innovation will define Portland as a center for sustainable building in the United States. The construction economy is about to start pumping again and the companies that are poised to take advantage of the latest building technology will prosper.
I am so excited to see such a well organized municipality! Forward thinking design will make their city thrive in the future. Please take a look at the web site: http://www.oregonsustainabilitycenter.org/
This building will be the most energy efficient high-rise ever built.
