Portland’s Technology Architects

We are thrilled to bring our 15+ years of experience designing and implementing NYC technology systems to Portland…

1. Lunch & Learns: We are committed to educating the Architect community on the opportunities, pitfalls and proper planning around integrating technology into their projects. Our Lead Systems engineer is available for CEU-certified courses at your office now.

2. CEU Summits: Building the largest annual CEU summit for technology and Architecture professionals has helped us learn how to fill gaps and create harmony between the two trades.

3. Smart Design: Let the Cloud9 Smart team design your client’s technology system with a meticulous, brand-agnostic approach that will realize your client’s vision while removing bottlenecks to your process.

How we came up with Smart Design

  • “How likely would you be to recommend Cloud9 to someone else?” 94% 94%

We went with Cloud9 Smart because they didn’t make us feel like Luddites… They were very enthusiastic about the whole thing, which made the process fun and collaborative. Fernando clearly cares about all of the technology, and how it works.

Owner - Converted Firehouse

I have dealt over the years with many promising contractors and subs only to be disappointed with their work, communication, timeline, etc. With Fernando and his team, my journey has been nearly flawless… I have used them on 4 projects so far. If I were to buy another home, I would not look to anyone else.

We are very happy, in fact we have already recommended you! No surprises. Everything was great and communication was smooth. Bruce in particular was excellent to work with.
