Hennebery Eddy designed the initial academic/administrative building for the new Portland Community College (PCC) center in Newberg. It includes a computer lab, an administration suite, service core, an open commons, and five general classrooms—two of which can be combined into one multi-purpose room. The design is extremely energy efficient, using no more energy than can be produced onsite from solar panels. It incorporates a passive approach to mechanical systems including natural ventilation, daylighting, thermal mass, and a super insulated building envelope. The LEED Platinum-Goal project is participating in the Energy Trust of Oregon’s Path to Net-Zero incentives program.
