The Oregon State University College of Forestry will include a new forest science complex to expand classroom, office and lab space. Focused on the emerging field of high-rise construction using engineered wood products such as cross-laminated timbers, the project will consist of two buildings, the Advanced Wood Products Laboratory, and 18,000 SF pilot plant for testing and developing new engineered wood products; and a 90,000 SF classroom and office building that will replace Peavy Hall as the College’s academic nerve center. The new buildings will have three stories of modern, flexible classroom space that will better serve the needs of the college.
