- Portland, Oregon and Columbia sportswear CEO Tim Boyle
- City of Portland has been experiencing increased homelessness.
- After touring several sites in San Diego and San Francisco, Columbia Sportswear Tim Boyle elected to fund the construction of a 60’ wide by 165’ long fully insulated Sprung Structure. This facility includes Dupont Tedlar Forest and Bayberry Green architectural membrane, R25 fiberglass insulation and attractive glazing walls. Daylight panels in the peak provide additional lighting which enhances the overall accommodation experience.
- This is Portland’s first Navigation Center and will host over 100 beds. It is located in downtown Portland’s trendy “Pearl District” next to the Broadway bridge! Columbia Sportswear CEO Tim Boyle personally funded this project and coordinated the contributing parties, Opsis Architecture, Deacon Construction, Froelich Engineers and other local entities.
