Photos and Story by Kate Chester
Portland Community College’s Newberg Center is garnering accolades before it’s even built. The facility’s design, created by Hennebery Eddy Architects, was named runner-up in the “As Designed” category by Architecture 2030 at the first-ever 2030 Challenge Design Awards that took place in October 2010.
“We’ve been excited since day one about our Newberg Center project,” said Tim Eddy, principal, Hennebery Eddy. “With its sustainability features, this building is one of the first of its kind, anywhere. To receive this honor is ‘extra’ – like icing on the cake.”
Now under construction, the PCC Newberg Center will be completed and open by fall 2011. The 13,500 sq. ft. facility aims to be one of the first NetZero/carbon-neutral academic buildings – meaning it will generate 100 percent fewer carbon dioxide emissions than the average building in the United States of the same type and size.
