Säzän Group provided Electrical Engineering services for the modernization and addition of a state-of-the-art Forestry Sciences Laboratory building at the Pacific Northwest Research Station.
Located on the Oregon State University campus, the project included demolishing the 17,000 SF east wing and designing a new two-story, 9,000 SF addition. The building houses the USFS Siuslaw National Forest Headquarters, including administrative offices, research and development laboratories and conference areas.
Säzän designed a new electrical service, power distribution, interior lighting, site and pathway lighting, data/communications raceways, and a fire alarm system. Site lighting included parking, landscape, and pathway lighting.
The project was designed to achieve a LEED silver certification.
”This remodel and co-location provides the opportunity to strengthen relationships among research, forest management, and education while accomplishing the overall Forest Service mission. It also establishes a new model for science-based management and will provide unparalleled opportunities for students to become immersed in natural resource research and management.”
-John Laurence, Corvallis Forestry Sciences Lab Line Officer
”This co-location is a great opportunity for our agency. Nowhere else in the country are research and forest management located on a major university campus.”
