Multnomah County Central Courthouse Construction Tour
October 15, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm$15
This is a rare mid-construction tour to see behind the walls of the impressive new facility just west of the Hawthorne Bridge. The new courthouse is 463,000 sq ft, 17 stories, and will house 44 courtrooms, district attorney’s offices, judges’ chambers, and secure holding of detainees. The facility is enrolled in the Energy Trust of Oregon Path to Net Zero program and features innovation throughout the envelope and mechanical design, including high efficiency chillers & boilers, active chilled beams, and radiant floors. The project also incorporated advanced seismic bracing and resilient strategies to increase safety. MCCCH Project Info: https://multco.us/central-courthouse-project
Please note: due to the fact the project is still an active construction site, we need to keep tours to a maximum of 20 people. Therefore, we will offer two tour times. Please register for the tour you would like to attend. Please bring your own PPE (hard hat, safety vest, safety glasses, close-toed shoes) to the tour.
Tour will meet at the corner of SW 1st & Jefferson.
