Skanska Chosen to Build Oregon Sustainability Center

When proponents of the Oregon Sustainability Center delivered their feasibility study last year, the development team included Gerding Edlen Development, which won its assignment through a competitive bidding process and Hoffman Construction, which did not.

That set-up did not suit Jay Kenton, the Oregon University System's vice-chancellor for finance. If the project gets built, the state university system will put up most of the money (currently budgeted at $72 million but expected to be less). And Kenton told WW he insisted on putting the project out for bid.

Today, as first reported in the Daily Journal of Commerce, Gerding Edlen selected Skanska to be the project's builder.

Gerding Edlen's project manager, Jill Sherman, says her firm previously worked with Skanska on a state-of-the art building at Portland Community College and is now working with the firm on the rehab of an old Meier & Frank warehouse into a new headquarters for wind turbine manufacturer Vestas.
