Comcast Adds New Location In Tigard To House Growing Business Group

Stocks in this article: CMCSA CMCSK

Comcast has opened a new Business Center in Tigard to house its growing Comcast Business group, as well as Engineering, Project Management and Technical Operations. The building was renovated by Gromatzky Dupree & Associates, and Lease Crutcher Lewis was the General Contractor.

The 87,250-square-foot building at 11308 SW 68th Parkway now houses nearly 325 employees. The space is completely occupied by Comcast and is used for general office space, meetings and training. The employees were moved from other existing buildings to offer room for growth for Comcast Business, which provides advanced communications solutions to a growing number of small to large businesses. In addition, this move allows more room for growth in Comcast’s Center of Excellence in Beaverton, which employs more than 1,900 people in the Oregon & Southwest Washington region.

“There is room for more collaboration, future hires and growth at our new Tigard Business Center,” said Rodrigo Lopez, Regional Vice President, Oregon and SW Washington Region. “Providing a place where our Comcast Business team can continue to grow, as well as housing many of our engineering, project management and technical operations teams, means improved collaboration, technical advantages and continued future growth for our region.”

“We’re excited to have Comcast locating so many of its employees right here in Tigard,” said Tigard City Council President Marland Henderson. “Comcast is a valued community partner, and we welcome them to our city.”

The business center offers large meeting rooms, eight one-on-one meeting areas and several community spaces between office cubes. The “tech-ready” room at the new building provides realistic training for Comcast technicians with walls set up to imitate customer homes.

The Comcast Business Center took 149 days and 3,000 hours of construction by 68 workers to be outfitted with modern design and amenities for the growing media and technology company.

An environmentally friendly structure, more than 300 tons of metal were recycled during construction. In addition, energy efficient lights and a light management system were installed and all floor-covering adhesive and paints used in construction were low or no-VOC (volatile organic compound) compliant.
