University of Oregon is in the process of building their Knight Campus for accelerating scientific impact in Eugene, Oregon. The first if DRJ mass timber to be implemented into U of O’s campus was for their redesigned canopy at Hayward Field. It was the first of many deliveries that will be making its way from our DRJ plant in Riddle, Oregon. The University of Oregon is looking to build more with mass timber in order to create a sustainable campus for students. The director of design at UO and Oregon State University collaborative TallWood Design Institute, Sheine, said that the campus mezzanines will be built from the mass timber product, CLT. Sheine believes in these mass timber products because of their ability to sequester carbon, they can be digitally manufactured, it reduces waste, and the ability to build lighter than concrete. University of Oregon’s goal is to create beautiful, efficient, and sustainable buildings for their campus!
