Hazedale Elementary school is a 88,700sf school designed for 750 K-5 students in Beaverton School District. The school is one of four prototype schools designed for Beaverton. The design of the school spaces create both equity and equality for all students and a model for customization within a prototype design. The first hour of the tour will focus on a physical walkthrough of the school. The remaining time will focus on a discussion about the prototype process, how it played out at other the other locations and the differences in delivery methods between the projects (cost, quality, schedule, teamwork, etc).

Call for Presentations

Individual growth doesn't happen at a singular level. Taking a holistic approach to learning, we will examine and consider the elements that both encourage and engage or limit a student's potential.

Thoughtfully designed environments pay heed to not only the intellectual needs of a student, but also their social, cultural, and physical well-being, allowing the kind of foundational growth that will carry them successfully into a lifelong pursuit of learning – where the "Sky is the Limit". The Pacific Northwest Region is excited to announce that our call for presentations is now open for our Regional Conference, set for May 29-31, 2019 at the Sheraton Hotel in Saskatoon, SK.

We encourage association members, as well, as interested firms and districts/divisions to submit your proposals for a presentation.

Submit your proposal!

Submissions Due: February 28, 2019

Congratulations to the 2018 Scholarship Winner!

Mentors Needed

Would you like to share your knowledge of architecture, engineering, and construction with middle school students and helps shape their understanding of what our built environment in the future could be like? The Oregon and Southwest Washington Chapter is looking for volunteers to be mentors for middle school students in the Metro area as they participate in the SchoolsNEXT Design Competition, which challenges student teams to design their “school of the future”. Mentors will work directly with students and their teachers, and can volunteer for as much time as they are able. Planning, design, construction and operations knowledge in all fields and skills are welcome. The competition starts in Fall and concludes with the Chapter competition in March. This is a great opportunity to educate our sustainability leaders of the future! Contact Robert Allen or Katrina Shum Miller for more information.
