Walsh Construction Co and the Portland Building Enclosure Council hosted an examination of Orchards at Orenco on Monday, April 3rd. The design of the project was discussed, specifically examining the enclosure and mechanical systems that helped us to achieve Passive House Certification. The project’s outstanding measured energy performance was presented, with a breakdown of energy consumption and a comparison to the modeled energy performance. Finally, they discussed the hygrothermal performance of the exterior wall assembly, which has been monitored by RDH since the building first opened to tenants in 2015.
