ARCH-ARQ: Center for Health and Healing

Center For Health And Healing

The Center for Health and Healing at Oregon Health and Science University, a 400,000- square-foot, 16-story medical office building, was an ambitious project from the start. Comprising physician practices, outpatient surgery, a wellness center, research labs, and educational space, it incorporates a host of sophisticated energy-efficiency measures, water-conserving technologies, and other green features in an effort to show what’s possible in the often conservative market of medical office buildings. Those ambitious goals made it an especially valuable target for a comprehensive building performance study that took place about two years after occupancy. The study team deployed an occupant survey, analyzed utility bills, and compared the building’s performance to the goals that had been set for it.
