Building Partnership Through Smart Collaboration

Brand Story – Fourth and Montgomery project represents groundbreaking delivery model.

An office, medical and academic facility on an L-shaped block in downtown Portland at Southwest Fourth Avenue and Montgomery Street is more than what it seems. The building and its construction are a unique collaboration between four Portland institutions that will maximize efficiency and give each organization access to more resources than what each could access individually.

The $100 million building is much more complicated than pizza, but the concept of each organization contributing a ‘slice’ is the same. The seven-story, 175,000 square-foot building is a partnership between Portland Community College, the City of Portland, Oregon Health & Science University and Portland State University.

Portland Community College’s dental program and clinic will move from its current location on the Sylvania Campus to the new building. The location will house the city’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability offices, Portland State University’s College of Education and the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health, as well as ground-floor retail.

MacDonald-Miller Facility Solutions, a premiere Siemens Design provider and Controls contractor, managed and installed the facility controls and made what is typically a “thorny” part of the project easy and elegant. Rather than decide on a bunch of different systems that may or may not work well together because everyone wants different things and has different budgets, MacDonald-Miller mapped out needs, processes and design early on, so when the time came, all that needed to be done was implement the plan.
