Pitchfork Communications began working with Green Hammer in 2013 soon after the firm achieved PHIUS+ passive house certification for the CAPACES Leadership Institute in Woodburn, Oregon, becoming the first educational facility in the West to receive the certification.

Pitchfork helped get the word out about this innovative project and has been providing public relations, social media, and communications planning services ever since. Deliverables include press releases, award applications, blog posts, social media management and a quarterly e-newsletter.
