Central City Concern Eastside Health and Recovery Center
As Portland grows, so does its cost of living and the income disparity among its population. To help address the growing need for affordable housing and health services, Central City Concern has teamed with six local healthcare agencies to construct their new Eastside Health and Recovery Center.
Glumac provided MEP engineering, technology integration, lighting design, and energy analysis for this 117,000-square-foot, 6-story building geared toward those looking for substance abuse treatment, affordable housing, or those in transition out of homelessness. It features medical clinic, transitional housing, substance abuse disorder treatment, domestic violence counseling, wellness services, community gathering spaces, and ground floor retail.
With an eye on wellness, health, and energy efficiency, this new high performance building is targeting Earth Advantage Gold and includes a large photovoltaic array and HVAC System with heat recovery.
In 2018, the facility was a recipient of the AIA Healthcare Design Award.
