For the past three decades, ZGF has been responsible for designing most of the major expansions and remodels undertaken by the Port of Portland at the Portland International Airport (PDX). These projects have included doubling the size of the existing terminal, the enclosure for a new central utility plant, remodels of storefronts and concession areas, new parking structures and access canopy, the airport light rail station, and the PDX Conference Center, among others. ZGF also designed the Port’s most high-performance project to date—the LEED Platinum certified, 205,603 SF Port of Portland Headquarters & Long-Term Parking Garage. ZGF has also provided on-call architectural services for PDX since 2003, developing an intimate knowledge of the site, airport operations, and security protocols. Recent projects have been completed on fast-track schedules, requiring complex phasing and sequencing of both design and construction activities. Currently, ZGF is working on a new terminal core vision that defines the airport of the future while minimizing the amount of disruption to ongoing operations during the transition. Building upon concepts established in the Terminal Access Master Plan, this project will address the consistent and coordinated look, flow, and function of the terminal core resulting in a cohesive terminal space.
