Building History
The building was originally constructed in 1988 as the home for Precision Cast Parts. It sits on approximately six acres along side a creek.
 
The Oregon State Police, Crime Lab and Medical Examiner formerly resided in a cramped building in downtown Portland. The facility was too small and did not allow for expanding needs of the program. In 2000, DAS purchased the facility in Clackamas and conducted extensive renovations to convert it to the needs of the new tenants.   
 
In 2010, DAS plans to renovate the facility again and build out an extensive mezzanine level that has been used for storage up to this point.
 

Green Team

 DAS is not aware of an active Green Team in the building. 

Sustainability
Energy Conservation
The Department of Administrative Services (DAS) has designated its buildings as resource conservation zones. This means DAS works hard to save energy and water in its buildings, as well as ensure employees and tenants recycle to the best of their ability. The goal is to save taxpayer money and care for the environment to the greatest extent possible.
    
Energy Savings Report
  DAS compares all bills to the calendar year 2000 as a baseline.  The goal and OAR require a 20 percent reduction in electricity and natural gas usage by 2015. DAS does not adjust the buildings without baseline adjustments for weather or any other factors. The savings column represents the combined electric and gas savings in Btu’s compared to the year 2000 usage. The Energy Cost column includes the totals for electric and gas – not all utilities.    
The Portland Crime Lab's energy use is under evaluation and won't be posted until a revised baseline can be established. This is due to the fact it was not constructed until after the state's 2000 baseline.
 
Electricity Scorecards
The quarterly scorecard provides a quick report on electricity reductions, compliance with the 20 percent reduction target, recent night audit results, and tips for conservation. Here are the scorecards for the building.

Night Audits
 As part of the effort to conserve resources, DAS conducts quarterly night audits of the buildings. They walk through the spaces to ensure that lights, appliances, and equipment remains off during unoccupied times. Here are the results of the audits for the building.
DAS plans to conduct an audit of this building soon, but it hasn’t occurred yet.
