The Edith Green – Wendell Wyatt Federal Building is an 18-story high rise building located in downtown Portland, Oregon. The building, named after two members of the U.S. House of Representatives, was originally constructed in the 1970s.
Between 2009 and 2013, the building underwent a $139 million renovation aimed at improving efficiency and sustainability. The project was designed to achieve a LEED Platinum rating, the highest designation from the U.S. Green Building Council. The work involved both interior and exterior enhancements, including new heating and cooling solutions and solar panels on a tilted roof.
Project managers selected Jaga’s Clima Canal Hybrid heating and cooling units to be recessed along the perimeter of the floors to discretely provide efficient outputs. The units fit seamlessly into the newly modernized space, saving space while using less energy. They are also extremely quiet due to their low voltage fans.
