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.

When 300 self-proclaimed “data nerds” at Digital Intelligence Company New Relic needed a new place in Portland to call their work home, they brought in IA Interior Architects to make their very own “Nerdvana” happen. After strategizing together, IA based their design on the company’s core values: accountable, BOLD, passionate, authentic, connected, and frictionless.
...and when it came time for a contractor to make the Nerdvana come to life, the team chose Fortis Construction.

Fortis Construction has reinstalled The Continuity of Life Forms art piece at the new Oregon Zoo Education Center.
"The Continuity of Life Forms" — a huge midcentury-modern mosaic by renowned Portland architect and artist Willard Martin — was reinstalled at the Oregon Zoo last month at a site near the old zoo entrance, where the iconic piece stood for more than 50 years. The work is composed of 20 panels totalling roughly 60 feet long and 15 feet tall. It was created to capture a panoramic sense of history and being — the forces of life — out of footprints, seeds, leaves, shells, fossils and primitive life forms that are found in the Earth's strata.
"This is a way of preserving the legacy of a local hero in addition to preserving part of the zoo's history," says Brent Shelby, one of the zoo's project managers. "There will be a lot of nostalgia for those who visited the zoo prior to the late 1990s."
