Portland South Waterfront Development

NV5 provided geotechnical and environmental services for the majority of the buildings and infrastructure improvements for the South Waterfront development in Portland, Oregon.

The 38-acre South Waterfront mixed-use development includes high- and mid-rise condominium and apartment towers, patient care and medical research facilities, a 4-acre greenway, new private and public streets, an extension of the streetcar line, and the Portland Aerial Tram.

Most of the development’s buildings are LEED certified or are in the process of becoming certified.

NV5 has managed project budget and schedule during multiple phases through close communication with the development teams. This includes regular meetings to review scope, budget, and schedule; address changes of conditions or additional work scopes in a timely, proactive manner; and follow up with documentation of any scope changes.
