Portland International Airport

About This Project

Carlson provided the special inspection and materials testing for the Port of Portland's new Headquarters building at the Portland International Airport

The Port of Portland’s new headquarters building (known as HQP2), consists of a seven story, 1,250,000 square foot, post-tensioned concrete parking garage topped by a 208,000 square foot, three story structural steel moment framed office building housing the Port’s headquarters for their operations personnel. The concrete parking structure contains over 3,000 parking spaces and it incorporated over 50,000 cubic yards of structural concrete. The office building portion is comprised of approximately 1,800 tons of structural steel. The construction cost was approximately $400 million and the project was constructed between October 2007 and March 2010.

The general contractor was Hoffman Construction and the project architect was ZGF Architects. Carlson worked directly for the Port of Portland on the project.
