Forbes Ranks Port of Portland Headquarters Among Top Ten High Tech Green Buildings
The Port of Portland headquarters was recently listed as one of ten of the world’s most high tech green buildings by Forbes.com. Brendon Levitt, an architect with San Francisco-based firm Loisos + Ubbelohde, compiled notable examples of green building innovations that conserve energy, water, and natural resources.
The Port of Portland headquarters received the ranking largely because of its Living Machine System, which treats wastewater in the building for re-use in the building’s toilets and cooling tower. The article notes that while design and technological innovations are important to reducing resource use, so is how the buildings are managed and inhabited on a day to day basis.
