Awards:
LEED Platinum

Reyes Engineering provided telecommunications system design services for the renovation and addition to Portland State University’s School of Business Administration. The vibrant 145,000 square foot facility houses classrooms, communal study space, business incubator space, and faculty and administrative office space – all arranged around a five-story central atrium.

Reyes’ telecommunications design for the Karl Miller Center required replacement of fiber optic and telephone cabling backbone systems. A project challenge arose in trunk cables, which fed a quarter of the campus connectivity intercepting the project construction site. Reyes Engineering provided careful coordination services in order to reroute the cables and maintain real-time communications during construction, as well as maintain the construction schedule.

Classroom and lecture halls were configured for offsite learning, wide screen display, and overhead image projectors, while office spaces and lecture halls are configured for voice-over internet protocol as well as active sound reinforcement. The resulting facility is a hub of communication and connectivity for Portland State University’s student and faculty population, and has achieved LEED Platinum status.
