Nike has unveiled their new building, The LeBron James Innovation Center at their Nike World Headquarters campus near Beaverton, Oregon. The 700,000 square foot building includes the 84,000 square foot Nike Research Sport Lab (NSRL), which is what Colin Gordon Associates provided vibration consulting support with architect firm Olson Kundig. The challenge was how the building’s background vibrations would affect the fourth floor NSRL which is made up of a full size NBA basketball court, 100 and 200 meter running tracks, and an indoor turf soccer pitch which are all used to measure an athlete’s movements. The extremely sensitive force plates can record one’s heartbeat by just standing on it. The waffle design subfloor was built so that the rest of the building’s movements would not interfere.
