Beacon Project Completed

PACS wants to thank the City of Portland and each person and organization that contributed to this project. The organization is pleased to announce that the Beacon Project is now complete! PACS has established a more attractive, dignified and responsible visual presence in the community through the visual improvements (improved signage, new paint). It is also reducing its energy expenses and carbon footprint through green improvements (insulation, new double-paned windows). PACS is now using less than half the natural gas when comparing months with similar temperatures before and after the improvements. In additon to lowering the organization's carbon footprint, it decreases energy costs, freeing up additional money for investments in new programs like the addition of dental services (coming next spring).

Here are some photos showing various parts of the project before, during, and after the work that was done.
