Foss Maritime Center

Portland, OR

Completed Spring 2016

Builder: D&B Group

In partnership with D & B Group the Foss Maritime Headquarters, located on the west bank of the Willamette River, was renovated and revitalized. 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. Inside, a new fleet monitoring center with a 20’ x 5’ video wall and a large training center were added. 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.
