OREGON & WASHINGTON
IT IS A WAY OF THINKING AND LIVING.
IT IS THE PHILOSOPHY THAT INTEGRATING GREEN BUILDING SYSTEMS MUST BE INNOVATIVE AND AFFORDABLE IN ORDER TO BE SUSTAINABLE.
AND THAT THESE SYSTEMS, IN THE WAY THEY ARE PROVIDED, WILL ACHIEVE FINANCIAL, ECOLOGICAL, AND SOCIAL PAYBACK.
OUR GOAL IS NOT ONLY TO DECREASE OUR DEPENDENCE ON EXHAUSTIBLE RESOURCES
BUT TO APPROACH ENERGY INDEPENDENCE AS A LIFESTYLE.
TO RECONNECT OURSELVES AND OUR CITIES WITH NATURE.
#NATURE IS SEXY
SOLTERRA PRESIDENT BRIAN HEATHER
DISCUSSES THE IMPORTANCE OF RECONNECTING OUR CITIES WITH NATURE
The Woodlawn will be the epitome of green living in Northeast Portland. This proposed LEED Platinum, 18 unit mixed-use apartment building features some of the most innovative design and construction strategies that are shaped to reconnect you with nature while keeping you plugged into to the excitement and energy of the city.
Constructed with primarily reclaimed and highly renewable materials, and featuring 4500 square feet of ecoroof, an outdoor roof terrace, and 1100 square feet of living wall siding, the Woodlawn seamlessly blends the best of modern architecture with all the benefits and aesthetics of natural flora. Three major transit lines just steps from your front door as well as on-site bicycle parking for every unit makes the Woodlawn an ideal location for the Portland commuter. Each unit and workspace sports water efficient fixtures and low energy lighting to keep costs and carbon footprints low, while 4.8kW of solar awnings and an over 9000 gallon water catchment system keep efficiency and sustainability high.
The Woodlawn is the optimal location for a Portlander on the go that values green practices in conjunction with modern city living and wants to get in on the ground floor of an up and coming trendy neighborhood.

WHO WE ARE >>
SolTerra Systems is an ERL (Electrical, Roofing, Landscaping) company. We specialize in innovative, usable rooftops with a core focus on solar power, vegetated roofing, the best waterproofing systems, and living walls.
"Who are we?" We are an innovative, rapidly growing, youthful, disruptive, detail oriented, adventurous group of talented individuals who want to be involved in the most sustainable, livable, and innovative buildings in the world.
Many people ask “Why do you do electrical, roofing and landscaping?” Because they are highly integrated and critically important when building sustainable structures that integrate into nature. Currently there are MEP (mechanical, electrical, plumbing) companies that offer full service solutions within the building to the in-organic building elements. We offer our services to provide a full solution for the more environmentally integrated building elements.
People also ask, “Where do you do work?” Our answer is that while we are based in the Pacific Northwest, with Offices in Portland and Seattle, we are looking at an office in San Francisco, and will travel anywhere in the world for the right project.
Simply put, our business is making your ecological dreams a reality!
