Oregon BEST Cross-Laminated Timber Design Contest

July 12, 2016

We are thrilled to announce that our Glenwood Parking Structure has won the Oregon BEST Cross-Laminated Timber [CLT] Design Contest.

We launched this design contest last fall to help fast-track the use of CLT in Oregon, speed the economic impact for rural Oregon communities where CLT is manufactured and advance adoption of this new building material that sequesters carbon and competes with concrete or steel in strength
