Providing mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design; energy analysis; and lighting design for a LEED Platinum EcoDistrict development in Oregon
In the midst of a population boom, Portland is in need of more residential space. With the city’s current infrastructure not able to keep up with that need, new private developments have to accommodate a growing population without damaging the surrounding environment. Hassalo on Eighth was conceived as an EcoDistrict—a series of buildings that share sustainable energy, water, and waste infrastructure—to ease the city’s housing squeeze, revitalize a neighborhood in need of development, and allow its tenants to reduce their carbon footprint by nearly a third.
One might think the proliferation of renewables would spell the demise of natural gas, but market leaders know that gas-fired generation will continue to play an important role even as an influx of renewable energy reshapes the American power landscape.
Thanks to a host of recent technological developments, the transportation industry is once again on the edge of a major transformation. Of course, the industry is no stranger to change. It hasn’t even been two centuries since the automobile was created and yet we’re already seeing bounding leaps in technology, creating advances like electric vehicles, ride-sharing services, self-driving cars and more. Today, the advances only continue to evolve—with a few precautions.
