LEED pros: See the top 25 Portland architecture firms, ranked by number of LEED APs

  • Portland State's Academic and Student Recreation Center, by Yost Grube Hall, is one example of the region's several stunningly designed LEED-certified projects. Click through for our ranking of the top 25 green architecture firms.


When Portland Business Journal Research Director Tam Jenkins approached me a few weeks ago with some data she’d collected on LEED architecture, I had two immediate thoughts.

The first: Pictures! All these firms must have pictures of their work! And, being a bit of a visual person, I really wanted to see how exactly their green-design expertise plays out in the real world.

The second thought: I wonder who has the most LEED architects or other such workers?

The answer, Ankrom Moisan Architects, surprised me. I figured either ZGF or Sera, our two largest architecture firms overall, were a lock for the top slot.

We decided to take a look at the area’s largest LEED architecture firms, as ranked by the number of LEED AP workers on staff, along with a representative project. The efforts we collected are extraordinary, with such projects as the Matthew Knight Arena, the White Stag Building and the Mercy Corps structure standing out.
