Located in northeast Portland, the Oregon Food Bank is a 110,000 SF headquarters and distribution facility. The project team focused on constructing an efficient and cost effective facility which would provide a long-term, low-maintenance building without sacrificing quality. The building was constructed of split-face CMU with open wood-frame structure. The construction utilizes high efficiency glazing and insulation measures to reduce energy consumption.

“You…have much to celebrate…especially your deep and generous commitment to folks who are struggling and the non-profits that help them. Congrats!” - Rachel Bristol, Oregon Food Bank (on the occasion of WALSH’s 50th Anniversary)

The much-needed facility came at a time when the Food Bank had to turn away volunteers and food donations due to lack of space and inadequate cold food storage.
