On Monday, March 10, Portland Community College celebrated the opening of its renovated Building 7 at the Rock Creek Campus (17705 N.W. Springville Road). Opsis Architecture and Fortis Construction planned and constructed the new 28,000-square-foot east side of the building. The addition includes new classrooms, study areas and expanded space for the campus’ Multicultural, Student Learning, Women’s Resource and Teaching Learning centers. The new facade that runs the length of the addition features 10-inch wide silicon frit pattern screen-printed windows that have helped earn the structure a Silver LEED rating. This project is part of the college’s 2008 voter-approved $374 million capital construction bond, which has earmarked $63 million to upgrade the Rock Creek Campus.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
