There’s been a lot of buzz about the new Futsal Court planned by Hacienda Community Development Corporation, located in Portland, Oregon. The Green Above Ground collaborative, is designing and installing the green roof portion, and incorporating stormwater management strategies along with assistance from Cushing Civil Engineers. We are working with the rest of the design team, including Hacienda, Scott | Edwards Architecture, and general contractor LMC Construction, along with a range of other partners.
The Oregonian recently mentioned the project, along with a mention in the Daily Journal of Commerce, along with a recent announcement of donations from both Adidas and the Portland Timbers. A view from Killingsworth shows the configuration of the roof, which will include 4,000 square feet of vegetation along the south side.
The project will be funded by the City of Portland Ecoroof Incentive as part of the contract with the Green Above Ground team that includes Snyder Roofing of Oregon, Teufel Landscape, and Verde. A major component of our project will include mentoring and workforce development for green roof construction and roofing through project partners to give minority workers additional skills in the sustainable industries.
KPTV Channel 12 also had a longer story about the court, showing the need in the neighborhood. Stay tuned for more buzz as the project continues to take shape.
