We’re excited to announce the Multnomah County Central Courthouse has achieved LEED Gold certification from the USGBC.

Public Entrance – Multnomah County Central Courthouse, Portland, OR (Courts Design: CGL)

The MCCCH Project Team sought to integrate sustainable solutions into every aspect of the courthouse design.  The team collaborated with Multnomah County and Portland Gas and Electric to find a way for the photovoltaics on the Courthouse to bypass the building and ‘plug’ into the adjacent drawbridge, allowing them to fully utilize the power the courthouse generates and offset the energy costs for the bridge. They also specified innovative vacuum plumbing systems to maximize water efficiency, collaborated with the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality to acquire Environmental Product Declarations for the structural concrete, and adapted an existing historic structure on the project site into the courthouse complex.
