Oregon Health & Science University is constructing the $50 million Elks Children's Eye Clinic Building in Portland. Designed by NBBJ, the freestanding 64,000-sf building will be physically connected to the existing Casey Eye Institute by a striking glass sky bridge. The five-story structure will accommodate translational research labs, an 11,500-sf pediatric eye clinic, and space for clinical trials. LEED Gold and Architecture 2030 certification will be sought for the sustainably designed facility, which will feature a high-performance building envelope, a dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS) with an energy recovery wheel, a heat pump water heater, and LED lighting throughout. Construction began on the Elks Children's Eye Clinic in spring of 2018 and completion is expected in July of 2020. The project team includes general contractor Skanska USA Building and mechanical engineer PAE.
