Case Study

Published / Updated:

Ruben J. Menashe Inc. wanted to create a unique,
comfortable development that showcases environmental
accountability when building The Albert, a mixeduse
building with 72 apartments over retail space in
Portland, Oregon. As part of its effort to obtain LEED
Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council,
a process that ranks construction projects by their
sustainability, Menashe installed a variety of green-building
features including ENERGY STAR appliances and Buderus
solar thermal hot water panels to harness the sun’s heat for
approximately half the domestic hot water used by tenants.
