One of the Guild’s newest members, Bob Bissell of Far Pacific, is presenting on a recent project of his this Monday as part of Solar Drinks. The inspiration behind the New Heights Physical Therapy building is GAPO Holdings, LLC guided by Kevin Poe, Donna Gramont and associates. The building is a story unto itself and the best explanation is provided by the Energy Trust of Oregon case study on the Energy Trust website. The original structure is over the century mark and was given an opportunity to continue to provide value to the neighborhood by the team of professionals gathered by GAPO to breath new life into the project. Commissioned for occupancy on December 1, 2014, NHPT was designed to be an example of sustainability and efficiency utilizing leading construction techniques, reuse of many materials and leading small commercial off-the-shelf HVAC/HRV technology. The highly flexible integration responds quickly to changes in programming and reflects those changes within minutes and can provide net result feedback as quickly as Portland General Electric, the providing utility, gathers data from the meter. As a solar-ready qualified installation, the next phases of design should take NHPT into the realm of net zero and into providing a net positive for GAPO. Something few small commercial applications have the opportunity to demonstrate. They look forward to showing what they have accomplished and discussing the future. Hope to see you there.
