PAE Living Building – Creatively Pursuing Living Building Certification!

Great article in the Daily Journal of Commerce Oregon highlighting the incredible collaboration of the PAE Living Building project team and REACH CDC in support of meeting the International Living Future Institute – Living Building Challenge!
With regulatory and physical challenges, the PAE Living Building was not able to accommodate all of the required solar panels in pursuit of the Living Building certification. Renaissance Commons, affordable housing developed by REACH and also built by WALSH, had three times as much roof space as the PAE Living Building. Being closely connected to both projects, WALSH Chief Estimator Ed Sloop and Project Manager Kent Usher saw the opportunity for a collaborative solution where Renaissance Commons received solar panels in support of the PAE Living Building. This partnership exemplifies how net-zero-energy production has the potential to increase the benefit beyond the one-building footprint and into the broader community. The PAE Living Building is an excellent example of how project teams can creatively pursue living building certification!

Building Community Garden Boxes for the Future Residents of Cedar Commons

It was a fun, family-filled event building community garden boxes for the future residents of the Cedar Commons community in southeast Portland. Teams from Central City Concern, Related Companies, Ankrom Moisan, GLI Advisors, City of Portland and Walsh Construction Co. volunteered their Saturday to build ten community garden boxes and even started the planting!
Huge thanks to our WALSH team for organizing the event — Meghan Herteg, Julie Cusumano, Blake Flury, Nolan Knox and Linda Woolery! Cedar Commons will offer deeply affordable housing combined with comprehensive, wraparound services to our most vulnerable neighbors and comes at a critical time in our region, when it’s needed now more than ever. Thanks to all involved for building community !
