Expected to open in time for the Fall 2021 semester, Edward J. Ray Hall will be the second academic building on Oregon State University’s Cascades campus, providing classrooms, labs, offices and maker spaces across three stories and 50,000 square feet. Made from timber sustainably harvested in the Pacific Northwest, it will also be Central Oregon’s first building fully constructed of mass timber materials. This landmark CLT and glulam post-and-beam building will help solidify OSU Cascades’ place in the Bend community while emphasizing the university’s commitment to sustainability. Join the project architect and an OSU Cascades representative on a virtual tour of this net-zero building and learn about its role as a “North Star” for this growing campus. Immediately following this session, Vaagen, the timber supplier for the project, will be available for an “Ask a Manufacturer” session.
