KPFF was structural and civil engineer for improvements to this $153 million medical campus. Providence Portland Medical Center was the first medical campus with a City of Portland covenant to chart a course to achieve the goals of the “Stormwater Management Manual” through compliance with site development goals. In three locations on campus, 100% of stormwater is infiltrated onsite via subsurface infiltration basins. This satisfies stormwater management for a 100-year storm event for the Cancer Center, Child Center and associated parking garages.
