Think of something you do on a daily basis without even realizing it – locking your door, reaching for your smartphone, or checking your watch for the time. While some behaviors are simple and become engrained with little effort or thought, others take time, intention and daily practice to become habits.
This month, Hennebery Eddy invites you to consider how your habits – both good and bad – impact the planet, and encourages you to form new ways to improve your relationship with the environment during the 2016 EcoChallenge, which kicks off on October 14 – one week from today. Now in its 6th year, the EcoChallenge is a friendly, competitive, community-building way to reduce your impact on the planet.
Architects by day, runners by night – it turns out we have some talented runners on staff who showcased their speed at the PDX Runway Run/Walk 6k.

PORTLAND, Ore. (September 13, 2016) – In a well-designed airport, travelers don’t have to squint to find their gate, cross their fingers for a nearby restroom, or backtrack for concessions they accidentally passed. The easy travel experience relies on special expertise in aviation architecture, and passengers visiting Portland International Airport will reap the benefits of Hennebery Eddy Architects’ latest hire. Heidi Bertman, AIA, LEED AP, has joined the practice, bringing more than 15 years of experience including a rich portfolio of design-forward aviation and transportation expertise. She’ll work on the Portland International Airport Terminal Balancing and Concourse E Expansion project.
Architects and construction firms are often lauded for the beauty, creativity and engineering of their projects, while the project delivery process itself is overlooked. Hennebery Eddy Architects and Fortis Construction are breaking that trend. The firms, both based in Portland, were recognized with a national merit award by the Design Build Institute of America (DBIA) for their design-build delivery of an office renovation for the Oregon Department of State Lands.
