Portland, Oregon

Client: SERA Architects, Cutler Anderson Architects

Building Size: 525,000 sf

Project Cost: $133 million

Certifications: LEED Platinum, Design Excellence

Originally built in 1974, the 18-story, 525,000 square foot building tapped into American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds to transform the building from a resource waster into an energy and water efficient structure. Interface provided plumbing design, which included the rainwater harvesting system, and the stormwater reclaim and reuse system for the 18-story building. These systems, along with low-flow plumbing fixtures, reduce potable water consumption by 70 percent. This includes a 20 percent reduction in indoor potable water use and a reduction of 50 percent for outdoor potable water use. Other sustainable features include a new radiant heating and cooling system, energy-efficient interior lighting, and shading devices added to the east and south facades.
