Vanport Building

Portland, Oregon

Owner: Portland State University, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland Community College, City of Portland

Architect: SRG Partnership, Inc.

Contractor: Andersen Construction Co.

The Vanport Building brings together four separate yet interconnected institutions – Portland State University, Portland Community College, Oregon Health & Science University and the City of Portland – to allow for greater cost efficiencies in the construction of this $100 million project. The eight-story, 190,000-square-foot building is constructed with PT slabs, concrete columns, concrete shear walls and auger cast pile foundations. Located in an urban setting on PSU’s downtown campus, the front curved fa├žade is designed to complement the curve of the adjacent existing MAX tracks. Designed to achieve the LEED Gold certification, this project was completed in Fall 2020.
