The mass timber structure of the new Peavy Hall, a feature building of the Oregon Forest Science Complex, has been taking shape since early December 2017 as glulam and cross-laminated timber from DR Johnson Wood Innovations arrives onsite and is erected into place. Some of the first wood elements to be seen onsite were the rocking shear walls that will ensure the building is resilient after seismic events. This is the first appearance of this technology (developed in New Zealand) on a US construction site. Our new Peavy Hall is an active construction site on a tight schedule, but even the view from the construction fence promises to be intriguing as mass timber is craned into place like giant wood Legos.
