Sub-Projects within a Larger Project within a Portfolio

We have various distinct teams (Business Development, Engineering, Production/manufacturing, field installation), and we think it best we develop and maintain our projects separately. However, we still have the need they roll up into a parent project, which may in turn roll up into a portfolio.

I believe this can be done, but I am not sure if anyone has done this or created templates for this.

I want to avoid massive projects that are very difficult to use, and I also want to avoid other teams directly changing information and plans of the other teams. I really want to avoid a master PM.

Has anyone done this, and can they share insights?
