Peterson Machinery Campus

Custom Manufacturing Facility

The new Peterson Machinery campus is a remarkable custom build facility scheduled for completion in May 2018. We’ve overseen every aspect of this project from site location, to design and engineering, through construction. Located along hwy 26 in Hillsboro, the campus has been developed with a focus on safety, efficiency, architectural beauty, and minimal environmental impact.

Peterson Machinery is an authorized Caterpillar dealer with 28 locations across Northern California, Oregon, and SW Washington. They sell, rent, and repair a full range of Caterpillar equipment including trucks, machinery, agricultural equipment, portable generators, and natural gas turbines.

The company’s Portland facility had grown over time on an as-needed basis leading to inefficiencies, obsolete machinery and environmental issues. Due to space and logistics, it was necessary to secure a larger site and build a new campus from scratch. The new site offered a chance to plan a cohesive campus that makes more functional sense. Our role was to oversee the entire development, design and construction of the new custom facility. From site location, to architectural and machine design, through complete construction, we’ve managed every aspect of this exciting project.

Cohesive Layout for Better Work Experience

The new site offers a cohesive campus layout tailored specifically to the company’s unique work flow, with state of the art machinery and repair facilities. Every detail has been attended to create a safe, efficient and environmentally responsible facility which will improve the work experience for employees, as well as open opportunities for an expanded regional customer base.

Pre-Engineered Steel for Safety & Longevity

Safety and longevity were of paramount importance, so we used pre-engineered steel instead of classic concrete tilt construction. The structures are built with seismic activity in the region in mind and are expected to survive earthquakes. Pre-engineered steel also allows for wider roof spans of up to 120 feet with fewer supporting columns required. This creates more interior space for the large equipment moving inside the buildings.

Leveraging the material’s strength, 27 bridge cranes are used inside the facility. Without the need for additional structures, the cranes – the smallest ones weighing approximately 3 tons – can travel across longer distances unobstructed. This makes for easier and safer workflows.

Energy Efficiency

Designed for energy efficiency, the heating systems in the climatized spaces operate at approximately one third the cost of standard gas systems.

sustainable construction

Environmental Sustainability

We took extra care to create a facility that would last with minimal impact on the environment. At the wash racks, Peterson is using an enzyme digester system which traps hydrocarbons so they can be disposed of properly. This is more expensive than older, less environmentally friendly options – but worth the investment.
