Open House: Building to Net Zero

The event is expired

An event hosted by Walsh Construction Co. for Sustainable Building Week, presenters will focus on meeting net zero energy standards.

In this event, hosted by Walsh Construction Co. for Sustainable Building Week, presenters will focus on meeting net zero energy standards in conjunction with designing and building relative to extreme weather and climate change. The new Operations Center recently completed as a part of the Northwest Housing Alternatives campus redevelopment was designed by MWA Architects and constructed by O’Neill/Walsh Community Builders (OWCB) to achieve Net Zero Energy Building Certification. This means the building will employ energy efficiency measures and onsite renewables to meet all of its heating, cooling, and electricity needs. It is the first such project in the city of Milwaukie.

Presenters Destin Ferdun from Northwest Housing Alternatives, Afton Walsh from Walsh Construction Co. and Bill Lanning from MWA Architects will share considerations, insights, and lessons learned when designing and building zero energy structures.

This is a free event which will include a tour, presentations and Q&A.

About Walsh Construction

Safety is our highest value.
There are many ways Walsh Construction Co. adds value to projects. Among the most important, we believe, is our dedication to living our values.

Honesty, Fairness and Respect.
We employ a general level of candidness and use fair and reasonable standards when dealing with clients, vendors and employees. We treat others in a consistent, objective and equitable manner, using courtesy because we recognize that individuals come from different backgrounds and have different capabilities.

Competence, Prudence and Innovation.
We strive to be aware of all aspects of a given task and be capable of managing the process efficiently and effectively. We are conservative in our use of company and client resources through well-thought-out decision making, and we continually strive to find better ways to do things through learning and increased knowledge.

Openness, Cooperation and Consistency.
We are accessible to others with questions and concerns, receptive to new ideas and methods, frank in addressing issues and willing to share knowledge. We work with others and share resources and knowledge so that our total product is the best value we can collectively produce. We use the same standards in addressing issues in similar situations.

Commitment, Generosity and Health.
We devote enough to a particular task to complete it efficiently and effectively. We share resources with fellow employees, charities and community organizations. We promote physical and mental well-being and a reasonable balance between work, family and recreation.
