Hacker Architects receives first Special Projects Grant

EArchitectural drawing of solar array on new building in Warm Springs.nergy Trust is pleased to announce that Hacker Architects is the first recipient of our Special Projects Grant. The grant includes $10,000 and outreach support for the firm’s latest innovative project, an exciting new incubator space that advances net-zero building practices in Oregon.

Hacker Architects is working with the Warm Springs tribal community to replace an existing commissary building with an incubator space for enterprising entrepreneurs. The new space will have room for up to 15 entrepreneurial businesses in the heart of downtown Warm Springs. Through the grant, Hacker Architects will team up with local engineering firm PAE on pre-design analysis and make the business case for a net-zero design.

Please join us in congratulating Hacker Architects. The project kicked off this past fall with published results expected in spring 2018. We look forward to sharing the outcome of their exciting work.

If you are interested in learning more about this project or net-zero building practices, contact Kirsten Vogel, market outreach specialist, at 503.961.6100.
