Portland State University is proposing to integrate the Urban Center’s existing Johnson Controls Building Automation System (BAS) to a Siemens Controls BAS. This project will re-use the existing field devices which are to be left in place and integrated into to new Siemens panels which will be operated with a Siemens provided software Disego.

The Urban Center is bounded by SW Mill, 5th, Montgomery, and 6th Avenue. Home to the College of Urban and Public Affairs, the Urban Center sits just north of the Academic and Student Recreation Center and east, across 6th Avenue, from Parking Structure 2 and the University Services Building.

The smaller western section of the building is called the Wilson-DeShane Pavilion, sometimes referred to as the Distance Learning Center. Named after long-time PSU supporters and alumni, Michael DeShane and Keren Brown Wilson, the Wilson-DeShane Pavilion is a four-story structure that includes retail spaces on its ground floor and an accessible rooftop terrace. It is connected to Urban Center via a two-story skybridge that passes over the Streetcar tracks.

The east and west building were designed by Thomas Hacker and Associates and Urban Center Plaza was designed by Doug Macy of Walker Macy landscape architects with the project completed in March 2000. The entire complex functions as a physical link between the original campus core in the Park Blocks and the expanding University District along SW 5th and 4th Avenues. In addition to the Streetcar station the project was coordinated with TriMet to provide multiple bus facility improvements along 5th and 6th Avenues thus establishing PSU as one of the single-most active destinations in the TriMet system. In March 2018, Urban Center earned LEED O+M Silver certification based on an evaluation of its operations and maintenance to reduce the environmental, economic and occupant health impacts over the lifetime of the structure.

The Request for Proposal (“RFP”) and selection process is provided in the Portland State University (“PSU”) Standards 580-063-0030 and 580-061-0000 through 580-061-0160.
