The Association of Energy Engineers Columbia River Chapter (AEE CRC) is pleased to announce a collaboration with the Portland Green Schools Committee and ASHRAE to host an upcoming building tour of the newly-renovated Roosevelt High School in Portland.
Roosevelt High School was built in 1921. It was part of three major modernization projects that Portland Public Schools funded in a 2012 bond. The $96 million Roosevelt HS project includes major renovations of portions of the school, demolition of some areas, and new construction. The innovative design successfully updates the existing building, while adding new spaces that integrate into the historical structure. The majority of the mechanical system is new and solar has been added strategically.
The tour will consist of two tracks – a technical tour and an architectural tour. The architectural tour will focus on the historical and structural elements, as well as classroom and teaching improvements. The technical tour will focus on the new mechanical system, solar and other integrated components. There will be some common information before the tours split off, and then attendees will need to select the tour they want to attend.
–Date: August 10, 2017
–Location: 6941 N. Central St in Portland; meet at entrance to the West Wing Building (next to the track). Park on site in this area or use the street parking if full. We’ll assemble at that entrance and split into groups.

In addition, there will be an optional no-host happy hour after the tour at Leisure Public House, 8002 N Lombard St, to continue the conversation and a bit more networking.
