Mercy Corps Headquarters
Location: Portland, Oregon
DEA managed the civil engineering services for this multi-story building that houses the Mercy Corps administrative offices. The existing four-story building was remodeled to provide additional office space as well as space for a museum and the smaller Mercy Corps NW. Civil engineering improvements included new public utility services (sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and water) to the building and public street frontage improvements including a left-turn lane from Naito Parkway, improvements to SW Naito Parkway and SW Ankeny Street that included new curbs, driveways, sidewalks, street lighting, and street trees. The project achieved LEED Platinum Certification.
