Asian Health & Services Center – Portland, Oregon

The Asian Health and Services Center was founded in 1983 and was first known as the Chinese Social Service Center. Throughout the years, the facility continued to grow and in 2002, they expanded their footprint to a building covering over 9,000 square feet. At this time, they officially became known as the Asian Health and Services Center. The organization provides the community with a place to access health and wellness benefits and a variety of community outreach programs. The programs offered at the Asian Health and Services Center range from weekly clubs and living well training to mental health clinics.

As the Asian Health and Services Center continued to grow, they eventually outgrew their building space once again. For this move, they planned to build an entirely new facility that would encompass over 30,000 square feet. This new building will allow the organization to expand their services and programs to the community. It will house the region’s first culturally specific cancer resource, a primary care clinic, treatment rooms for behavioral and physical health and a multipurpose hall for community events.

When selecting an air barrier for the wall assembly, SOPREMA products were chosen. With the help of our SOPRASEAL® LM 204 VP, SOPRASEAL Liquid Flashing, SOPRASOLIN® HD and SOPRASEAL Stick 1100T, the Asian Health and Services Center now has a monolithic air barrier system. In addition to providing an energy efficient building, the use of SOPRASEAL LM 204 VP not only offered the required performance, but also a cost effective price. Once completed, the building is anticipated to be LEED Gold certified and will meet the requirements of 2017 Oregon Structural Specialty Code.
