Daimler Trucks North America Corporate Headquarters

Portland, Oregon

The Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) Corporate Headquarters, located within the heart of industrial Portland on Swan Island, includes the nine-story building, multiple existing surrounding buildings, parking garage, surface lots, greenway trail, recreational fields, and connections to its on-site daycare facility. The goal of the overall project was to bring its employees together, connect to the community and environment, and create a sense of openness and accessibility, while maintaining campus safety and security.

The DTNA Campus is unique due to the number of project complexities that were simultaneously managed to satisfy the multiple uses, stakeholders, and permitting agencies.  The stormwater design, utility design, site layout, and permit timing were integrated throughout the project, while maintaining existing services for the adjacent campus buildings during construction, and providing for future property subdivisions. 

As the civil engineer for the project, HHPR ensured that the design met LEED goals, the re-use of existing infrastructure above and below ground, and helped the design team to encourage social, economic, and sustainable benefits to the community.
