At Skanska’s Portland office, RDC created interiors that reflect the global construction firm’s values of building a better society, energizing communities and the firm motto ‘be better-together.’
Goals for the interiors of Skanska’s Pearl District 1922 historic landmark buildings included creating a regional office with a local vibe authentic to Portland, encouraging collaborative culture, exemplifying sustainable practices, and integrating flexibility into the design so that the space can evolve over time.
The scope of work for RDC was the full workplace TI the 4th and 5th floors with a connecting staircase. The existing space was beautiful with nailed decking, timber columns, hardwood floors and atrium over the connecting stairs, so the approach was to respect the architecture while creating a space worthy of Skanska’s goals.
