In this episode, Cherise is joined by Michael Great, Managing Design Principal and Director of Design Strategy at Ankrom Moisan Architects to highlight Harder Mechanical Headquarters, a 25,000 sq. ft., two-story, CLT office building located in Portland, Oregon. Michael Strachan, Marketing Manager at Harder Mechanical also contributes to provide client perspective and insight.

The project presented unique challenges and opportunities – the owner, a mechanical and plumbing subcontractor, self-performed their own scope, the process included an adapted integrated project delivery method, a desire to showcase Harder’s own work and innovation led to exposed ceilings, structure and mechanical systems, and special conditions like a historic neighborhood and civil unrest led to remarkable material challenges and solutions.
