Green Building Facilities

Fundamental and Applied Research to Further Sustainability of the Built Environment

GBRL History

With a James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation sustainability grant through the Institute for Sustainable Solutions (ISS) at Portland State University and the generous support of the Oregon Built Environment and Sustainable Technologies (Oregon BEST) Signature Research Center we have created a facility where university researchers from across Oregon and beyond work in close collaboration with industry partners to solve the fundamental and applied research needs of the green building industry. These initial investments in the GBRL back in 2008 have helped to leverage additional funding including several large grants from the NSF and the US Department of Energy.
