Daimler Trucks North America’s innovative new US headquarters reflects an evolving company culture in which employees collaborate across disciplines in a cutting edge, sustainable environment. The $150 million headquarters is certified LEED platinum and includes a 268,000 sf 9-story building, a 4-story parking garage and surface parking on a 16-acre riverfront site.
Mayer/Reed’s sophisticated site design reflects the industrial setting through concrete and stainless steel elements in the plazas and entryways surrounding the building. A generous patio and terraced lawn invite outdoor dining, recreation and events. A new segment of the Willamette Greenway Trail features a large river overlook built on the foundation of a prior structure. Campus stormwater is managed through a variety of methods including an ecoroof and a south terrace water feature that directs rainwater from the building’s roof to treatment swales.
In addition, Mayer/Reed developed wayfinding strategies and designed interior signage to reflect Daimler’s updated brand, layering chrome and brushed aluminum to represent movement, innovation and sophistication. Developed in collaboration with interior designers, the system uses classic, neutral materials with minimal brand colors to create landmarks and unique spaces. The massive identity monument in mirror-surface stainless steel is inspired by Daimler’s state-of-the-art vehicle engineering and design.
