BBL participated as a consulting team to submit on the Vancouver Hotel, Convention, and Conference Center Design/Build competition. We were the only team able to include in the design the three level below grade parking garage within the maximum cost for the project.
The design maximized the views of Mt. Hood, the river, and Portland. Our unique design visually separated the convention center from the hotel. Although we did not win this competition, the chosen design was modified to make the convention center a more identifiable component similar to our line of thinking.
Our building design illustrated several intentional material choices: two colors of brick, pre-cast concrete and metal paneling all of which match the color of the landmark I-5 bridge in downtown Vancouver.
