In 1998, Columbia Sportswear Company retained GBD to analyze their space needs and assist with strategizing a new HQ campus. GBD then designed a complete renovation of an existing 200,000 sq. foot office/industrial building, with expansion capacity. Since Columbia’s 2002 move-in, GBD has remodeled several adjoining buildings while at the same time master-planning various long-range options.

In 2008, GBD completed an updated analysis of Columbia’s space needs in concert with an evaluation of other site options. This was done in support of a question; Should Columbia Sportswear relocate their HQ to downtown Portland? Their decision was to retain the current campus and grow onsite. GBD then prepared concept designs for phase I of a three-phase expansion.

GBD’s most recent work at the campus included interior renovation and site improvements to an existing one-story, 29,000 sq. foot building. An open floor plan allows for office collaboration between teams.
