Happy Valley Project

Owner: Confidential Owner

This 7,266 square feet Pre-Engineered Metal Building was designed and built for a confidential client. The building features clerestory windows that flood the interior with natural light as well as a second-floor mezzanine overlooking the main level garage area. The executive office area includes bathrooms, conference area, reception space, a custom curved bar, and expansive glass pocket doors providing visual connection to the main level.  The upstairs area provides ample space to entertain and host gatherings.  Multiple large overhead garage doors leads into car/entertainment garage.

For Mrs. Noble Building

Owner: For Mrs. Noble, LLC.

Architect: EMA Architecture

Originally developed in 1928 by Mary Nobel (believed to be one of the first female developers in Portland), the building had received little to no investment in its almost 90-year history. Complete MEP upgrades, repairs to structural deficiencies, and removal of toxic/hazardous materials were all a part of this project. In partnership with EMA Architecture, we hope this building will serve as a catalyst for preservation and investment in the community and continue to live on for generations to come.

Emler Swim Schools

Emler Swim School (Beaverton) opened their first of two planned locations.  The school offers year-round instruction for children from 2 months to 5+ years of age how to become safe swimmers.  The 6,200sf project consisted of adding an ADA-accommodating 1,700 sf indoor pool, six changing rooms, showers and a waiting area for parents.  The project features fabric ducting and a wall mural.

Univox Media

Univox Media offers proprietary digital media products that can be purchased on a collective or individual basis. Their custom-tailored digital campaigns can employ audio, video, or digital messaging designed to reach the people that matter most to their clients. This 2,520 Sq.-Ft. office tenant improvement features large storefront windows lining the main hallway. The addition of an office kitchen and conversion of one large restroom to two make this office space versatile and welcoming to all.

Confidential Client

Owner: Confidential

Architect: Carleton Hart Architects

Joseph Hughes Construction found great pleasure in partnering with Carleton Hart Architecture in a minor renovation that will continue to serve our community for years to come. We took great pride in knowing that the transformation of this project would have a positive impact upon the lives of those who visited this location. The design provided by the Architect not only brightened the space, but created an interactive environment for participants to enjoy. To witness the joy and laughter through the halls was priceless and rewarding. We look forward to our next endeavor with Carleton Architecture and our Confidential Client.  

The Center for Equity and Inclusion

The Center for Equity and Inclusion is a Portland-based non-profit with a core mission anchored in bringing sustainable change to work environments through consulting services. This project is a 7,500 Sq.-Ft. existing building with a full seismic upgrade and full interior build-out and the retro-fit of an elevator.

Sloy, Dohl & Holst


This 1880s structure (listed on the Historic Resource Inventory of Portland) was originally built as a private residence. JHC was hired to undertake a major renovation of the interior not only to bring the rooms back to their former glory but to bring the building systems up to the current code and provide the tenant with modern commercial amenities. New electrical, HVAC, low voltage, and plumbing were run throughout the building by what can best be described as a “surgical” process to preserve as much of the existing building as possible. Existing historic interior elements were carefully repaired and preserved.
