Oregon State University and the College of Forestry officially launched a $79.5 million initiative in January 2015 to build the Oregon Forest Science Complex. Once completed, the state-of-the-art facility will provide current and future students with a transformative educational experience across a full range of forestry and natural resources degree programs.

Made in Oregon

Designed for the future

The Oregon Forest Science Complex will include the new George W. Peavy Forest Science Center and the A.A. “Red” Emmerson Advanced Wood Products Laboratory. Throughout these facilities, visitors will notice innovative uses of advanced wood products including cross-laminated timber made in Oregon. The look and atmosphere of the complex will reinforce Oregon State’s international status as a premier forestry, natural resources, and wood science institution devoted to improving our forest landscapes and ecosystems.

Peavy Hall will be replaced with expanded, innovative classrooms and laboratories, as well as new public spaces supporting student learning.

The A.A. “Red” Emmerson Advanced Wood Products Laboratory will house sophisticated manufacturing systems, a high-bay lab with a unique strong floor for full-scale product design and a design lab to support interdisciplinary education programs.
