Canadian Firm Acquires Portland Green Building Specialist
RWDI, a Canadian building engineering firm, has acquired the Portland sustainability consulting firm Green Building Services; GBS is now a specialty consultancy within RWDI. GBS has done many of the green certification projects in the Portland area, including the Moda Center’s LEED Gold recertification last year, the Portland Business Journal reports, but it also does projects around the world.
The company, which has 22 employees in Portland, has had a hand in nearly 600 LEED certifications in all, or about 2% of green buildings currently in existence. For its part, RWDI, with around 400 employees, specializes in building performance, climate engineering and environmental engineering. [PBJ]
