The Portland Building 

DAY CPM was chosen as the Owner’s Representative by the City of Portland for the reconstruction of the Portland Building project. The Portland Building is a 15-story high rise building that is occupied primarily by City bureaus and is located downtown Portland. It is an internationally renowned architectural example of Post-Modernism designed by Michael Graves. It was originally constructed in 1981 as a Design-Bid-Build project and was recently listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The project scope includes envelope repair/replacement, seismic upgrades, system replacements, and full interior remodel. DAY CPM is also overseeing the Change Management process. The Project will seek, at a minimum, LEED Gold certification. One essential project goal is to significantly improve the efficiency and functionality of the building as a workplace. DAY CPM successfully managed the temporary relocation of all City bureaus without any interruption to their services and is planning the move back after completion of construction. The project is one year ahead of schedule and below budget.
