The feasibility team

Eleven teams responded to the Portland Development Commission’s Request for Proposals (RFP) to study the feasibility of the Oregon Sustainability Center.  After a first round of evaluation, the following four teams made the short list:

  • Gerding Edlen Development with SERA Architects and GBD Architects
  • Holst Architecture with FXFOWLE, Pettigrove Venture and Equity Community Builders LLC
  • Ethos Project Management with Behnisch Architects, Inc., Brightworks and Regenesis Group
  • Winkler Development Corporation with Perkins + Will and LRS Architects Inc.

Each team presented a remarkable set of strengths, making the final decision a tough one.

On February 27, the four short-listed teams presented their proposals to the project evaluation committee.  After much deliberation and debate, the contract was awarded to (……drum roll please……) Gerding Edlen Development with SERA Architects and GBD Architects.  We’re excited to have them on board!   Stay tuned for updates from the team.
