OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY

Mass timber research, manufacturing may be a game changer

The new forest science complex going up at Oregon State University will have a unique twist in its design; it will showcase technology largely developed by the school's researchers. The former Peavy Hall was razed to pave way for the new forestry center, which will be largely constructed using cross-laminated timber and mass-plywood panels, innovative products researched and developed at the school.
