Portland, Oregon

The Armory in Portland’s revitalized Pearl District neighborhood underwent a $36 million renovation over 15 years, and is now home to the city’s largest professional theater company, Portland Center Stage.

The building uses collected graywater to flush the facility’s toilets, a chilled beam HVAC system, and ventilation outlets for the passive heating-cooling system on the floor of theater seats. Integrating electrical, mechanical and information system sled to The Armory performing 30% more efficiently than building code.

Construction crews diverted 95% of waste from landfills and locally sourced significant portions of building materials, including the original 1891 Douglas fir beams.
