Nike's Oregon building spree extends beyond two new buildings and at least two new parking garages. A look at recent permits shows the sportswear giant is spending millions of dollars to improve existing buildings.


The work includes nearly $6 million in recent permits for the Mia Hamm building, which houses the company's key innovation functions, including theNike Sport Research Lab.


The company has been issued 148 building permits since February. More than $18 million relates to projects not connected to the company's giant expansion.


"Our expansion efforts are designed to provide Nike employees and teams with a work environment that inspires creativity and collaboration, and experiences and services that can support Nike’s workforce of the future," the company said in a statement.


Improvements include a $175,000 barista station planned for the Nolan Ryan building.


Last year Nike said it planned to add two buildings and two parking garages to its campus, a project that would add 1.3 million square feet of space and roughly 2,400 parking spaces and cost at least $150 million.


Nike's campus sits behind a giant berm and was conceived by co-founder Phil Knight to resemble a university campus. Knight reasoned college is a time of creativity, learning and play. He wanted to instill those values at Nike.


Recent permits also show a continued emphasis on security, such as permits for cameras, video systems and turnstiles.


The company has been growing at a record pace and needs more space for its growing workforce.
