PDX Redesign Supports Local Communities, Forests and Biodiversity

The PDXNext redesign of Portland International Airport’s main terminal involved a first-of-its-kind supply chain that supported the regional timber industry; and ensured wood traceability and equitable sourcing from local tribal, private and public landowners’ responsibly managed forests. This 1,000,000 square-foot renovation and expansion of PDX’s terminal core features a 9-acre mass-timber roof structure built from wood that was responsibly sourced to protect the Pacific Northwest’s most beloved cultural and natural resources. Unique in scale, the project connects 2.2 million board feet to the forests and people that grew the trees.
