Edith Green Wendell Wyatt Building

McKinstry has taken a pivotal role in the modernization of downtown Portland’s Edith Green-Wendell Wyatt Federal Building, an 18-story structure originally built in the early 70s. Enhancements to the 37-year-old building will include a number of innovative HVAC solutions such as a radiant heating and cooling system and aggressive shading, featuring aluminum ”reeds” on the western facade of the building. The use of rainwater and low-flow plumbing fixtures will reduce potable water consumption. The building is projected to utilize significantly less energy than comparable buildings.

McKinstry’s scope of work in the design phase of this high performance green building project include constructability reviews, value engineering, development of construction documents, project schedule, and construction cost development. In the construction phase, McKinstry will complete the change out of all HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection systems. McKinstry is also working with the integrated team to develop a measurement and verification plan to assure the owner’s energy saving goals are met.
