Foss Maritime Operations Center Remodel Completed


Dominek Architecture partnered with D&B Group to revitalize and renovate the Foss Maritime Center, located on the bank of the Willamette River. The design of the Center focused on the modern needs of full time, 24 hour on-call global monitoring staff. With a fleet of over 100 vessels operating globally, the center provides fleet safety and situational awareness for Mariners well ahead of potential hazards including heavy weather, earthquakes, and tsunamis. Exterior improvements focused on the entry lobby, including a new canopy, elevator, and custom metal cladding. The Interior features a new fleet monitoring center with a 20’ x 5’ video wall and a large training center. The project included an extensive environmental permitting process, which drove the planting of over 400 native plants to enhance and restore the riparian edge in this heavy-industrial zone.
