Sustainable Community College Campus: Engineering new certified LEED Platinum educational space

DCI Engineers provided structural design services for the new 13,000-sf academic and administrative center at Portland Community College’s Newberg campus.

Project Highlights

  • The one-story facility is certified LEED Platinum, and has a net zero rating from the Energy Trust of Oregon.
  • Utilizes a sophisticated HVAC control system that heats the building in the winter months by pumping warm water through pipes embedded in the concrete floor.
  • In the warmer months, exterior louvers and turbine fans work together as part of a “night flush” system to expel hot air and bring in cooler night air.
