Olin Hall Lab Upgrades
The chemistry and physics labs at Olin Hall on the Lewis and Clark College Campus were reconfigured and updated to meet the needs of the current researchers. Labs received new casework and finishes, upgraded utilities, new lighting and were retrofitted for accessibility.
Jefferson Substation, originally built in 1909, was one of the first reinforced concrete buildings in Portland and is listed on the National Historic Register. Originally an electrical substation that powered street lights and street cars in downtown Portland, Studio Petretti designed an adaptive reuse to integrate the structure into the new Multnomah County Central Courthouse.
The renovation of the building carefully balances respect for the historic structure and character with the demands of a heavily used contemporary public space. The Integrated Project Delivery team worked together carefully and thoroughly to bring the building up to current standards for energy and seismic performance, replacing all systems within a tight budget.
