This project was a property developed by OHSU at the South Waterfront redevelopment in Portland, OR. Considered one of the world’s “greenest buildings,” OHSU River Campus Building 1 in Portland’s South Waterfront is one of the nation’s largest LEED Platinum certified buildings and the only medical center in the world with that level of certification.

The building serves as medical office for the very prominent and every expanded OHSU Campus. The construction of the project and the LEED goals created a very unique challenge in the selection of materials that could be utilized during construction.

The stone utilized on this project was Yellow Topazio in Water Jet, Polished and Honed finishes and well as Galaxy Black in the same finishes and Calcarenite in Honed. The stone was primarily used as an accent to the metal panel and glass exterior and at elevator lobbies and feature walls at the interior.

The stone at the exterior of the building comprises accent bands that run the height of the building in Yellow Topazio with base in the same material below the ground floor windows. The fourth floor terrace includes wall cladding and parapet cap in the Yellow Topazio as well.

The interior work includes elevator lobby cladding in Yellow Topazio and Galaxy Black accents, water feature, elevator cab paving, and planters and benches in Galaxy Black.
