Filed In: Commercial, Green Infrastructure, Innovative Stormwater Management, Rainwater Harvesting, Urban
The project is a LEED Platinum four-block redevelopment in the Portland Lloyd District, which includes more than 600 residential units, retail and a specialty grocery. An existing 23-story commercial building received an energy retrofit with projected energy savings of 30%-50%. The project showcases the newest technology in energy, water, waste and stormwater green networks. Portland-based GBD Architects and Turner Construction are leading the design/construction team.
Lando and Associates worked with Biohabitats to facilitate the project’s natural organic recycling machine “NORM” which receives and manages all storm, gray and black water on-site, reducing the impacts to the storm and sewer system. “NORM” bio-mimics a tidal wetland function by filtering and cleansing the water. The system requires a multi-agency coordination and review for design, construction and permitting In addition to the daily certification and operation by partnering firm Putmann International.
