For the Reveley Classroom Building at the University of Idaho, the design team used locally-produced wood materials throughout, including framing lumber, cedar siding, engineered wood I-joists, and glued-laminated (glulam) beams, along with Western larch harvested from the school’s experimental forest, dried in its kilns, and then milled for the flooring.

In January, WoodWorks announced the winners of its 2015 Design Awards at the Bay Area Wood Solutions Fair in Oakland, California.

National awards went out in nine categories:

“The Wood Design Awards are an opportunity to recognize extraordinary buildings that exemplify, not only wood’s beauty, but the versatility and structural performance attributes that make it such an interesting material to architects and engineers,” said Jennifer Cover, PE, executive director of WoodWorks. “Collectively, this year’s award-winning projects celebrate the kind of innovative thinking that continues to expand the possibilities for wood use—and bring wood’s cost, sustainability, and other advantages to a wider range of projects.”
