About Sustainable Building Week

SUSTAINABLE BUILDING WEEK

October 12, 2020 kicks off the third annual Sustainable Building Week (SBW) an event-filled week from a cross section of Portland’s design professional organizations. SBW 2020 will run for two weeks this year to accommodate a safe, virtual platform. These two weeks will bring the best and brightest building professional organizations together to educate, connect and foster opportunities for future collaboration to Keep Portland Green. Whether its combating climate change, protecting our natural resources or investigating the increasing number of dangerous chemicals in our indoor spaces, the multitude of issues that need to be addressed require more attention by all of us.

OUR MISSION

Sustainable Building Week works to Keep Portland Green. SBW offers a week of events to break down siloed thinking to improve cross-disciplinary education, connectivity and future collaboration to promote sustainable practices and design across the city of Portland and beyond.

Sustainable Building Week is a 501(c) 3 Non-profit organization registered with the State of Oregon.

OUR TEAM

Terry Campbell
Terry Campbell started his career in the sustainable wood products industry in 2000. In 2004, he started a sustainable wood products consulting practice focused on training, certification expertise and marketing for wood product companies. Joining Sustainable Northwest Wood in 2014 he now works at the intersect of using wood products to protect ecosystem services, provide economic development, and connect people to place.

Currently, he is also the International Living Future Institute Portland Facilitator and co-creator of Sustainable Building Week.

Aaron Stevens
Aaron Stevens currently works with WALSH Construction as part of the estimating & preconstruction team and is Chair of the Sustainability Committee. As an attendee of the inaugural Sustainable Building Week, Aaron was inspired to action and has since joined SBW as Co-Executive Director. He views SBW as an opportunity to give back and to support Portland’s AEC community as we strive to innovate and continue to move the needle on all things Green. In addition to Aaron’s passion for Portland’s built environment and sustainability movement, he enjoys time with his family – being outdoors, finding the next adventure to embark on and conspiring to experience wonder.

Webly Bowles
Webly Bowles is a Project Manager at New Buildings Institute. As a licensed architect, she cares deeply about sustainability in the built environment and knows that Portland does too. Webly’s initial vision of SBW was for all local professional organizations to collaborate and illustrate the feasibility of sustainable design and construction. SBW has become so much more! Rain or shine, you can find Webly riding her red Vespa to vegan ice cream shops.

Reilly Loveland
Reilly Loveland is a sustainable and high performance schools advocate, enthusiast and self-proclaimed energy nerd. She wears many hats in the green schools world as a Project Manager at New Buildings Institute where she focuses nationally on Zero Energy and Zero Carbon school design, is the Chair of the Portland Green Schools Committee, is a Board Member of Oregon Green Schools and proud Co-Executive and founding member of Portland Sustainable Building Week. She works determinedly (and sometimes relentlessly!) with students, educators and design professionals alike to bring a higher standard of school design to the built environment. If not running around a school you can find Reilly exploring Oregon on her quarter horse Buckshot, running or hiking our beautiful mountains and trails, or trying to get as many plants into her garden as the square footage will allow.
