Bringing Mass Timber to life at adidas Monday, 8 November 2021 from 1:40 PM – 2:00 PM

Sustainability Learning Theater - Innovation Pavilion
The East Village Expansion project was the first major new build undertaking at adidas' North American headquarters in Portland, OR since its initial development in 2000. The 170ksf commercial office building, completed in January 2021, utilizes a novel, hybrid structure of mass timber and pre-cast concrete that was conceived to address design, sustainability and schedule priorities for adidas. This presentation will build upon the use of mass timber as a practical solution for design, sustainability and schedule constraints while touching on cost comparisons with concrete structures.
