About the project...

Portland Community College's Rock Creek Campus Building 5 was honored by the Daily Journal of Commerce Oregon as the 2016 Renovation of the Year

The 63,00-square-foot, $21 million renovation and expansion serves as doorway into the campus and provides new connections between student activities and services to enhance the overall academic environment. The vastly expanded Building 5 provides general purpose classrooms accompanied by a variety of student study spaces, a new Student Center with numerous services for the PCC Student Government (ASPCC), a new home for the Foods & Nutrition Program with specialized laboratory and learnings spaces, a multi-purpose physical education/dance room, and faculty offices. These teaching and learning environments are complemented by new campus amenities including the PCC Rock Creek Bookstore, a dining hall and a café.

Among many other sustainable efforts put in place to achieve LEED Gold certification, 98 percent of all Building 5 construction waste was recycled, which equates to 1,763 tons of material diverted from landfills. 

The award-winning facility was designed and built in collaboration with Opsis Architecture
