Stoel Rives, Oregon’s largest law firm, is renowned for their longevity and dedication to their clients. The firm’s continued growth prompted a move into the newly-completed Park Avenue West building. Interface Engineering provided tenant improvements for the firm’s new home. Occupancy sensors reduce power consumption. Daylight harvesting and manual dimming let staff utilize natural lighting for the majority of working hours. Low-flow plumbing fixtures and harvested rainwater for toilet flushing keep water use in check. To display the firm's art collection, designers selected LED-based lighting with current limiters, using 10% of the energy of incandescent lighting without sacrificing aesthetic appeal.
