The modernization of Roosevelt High School in the St. Johns neighborhood of North Portland involves a combination of renovation and additions that adds up to over 250,000 square feet. About 96,000 square feet of that area includes upgrade of existing historic structures, taking advantage of embodied energy on site. The 17-acre campus consists of a variety of structures that were constructed at various times during the 1900’s, starting with the original three-story, unreinforced brick masonry structure, constructed in 1921. In addition to meeting the 21st learning requirements and programming needs of a large student population on a tight site, the project team developed a rigorous set of sustainability goals such as: 100% on-site stormwater infiltration, enhanced clean indoor air quality, integration of multiple solar photovoltaic systems for learning, and creative reuse of salvaged materials.

Learn and see how green building and sustainable principles were incorporated into all aspects of the design and construction of this school modernization project.
