This LEED® Silver Certified Tenant Improvement consisted of adding 17,500 square feet of new office space over two stories constructed inside an existing warehouse building.

The remaining 100,200 square feet of the empty warehouse space was converted primarily to manufacturing space used for coffee roasting, processing, flavoring and packaging. When they moved into their new facility near the PDX airport, they hired R&W Engineering to provide full Mechanical and Electrical Engineering services as well as the LEED Fundamental Commissioning for this project. The change of use required completely new energy efficient HVAC systems using rooftop units and variable air volume systems, larger electrical service, new energy efficient T-5 HO lighting in the warehouse and pendant direct/indirect in the offices, ultra low water use plumbing fixtures and many other sustainable design features. R&W provided energy modeling and fundamental commissioning services to help attain a LEED Silver rating.
