Mass plywood installation is underway at Meyer Memorial Trust. This innovative timber product is used to create the organization’s new convening space which is envisioned as a welcoming hub for community leaders and organizations to gather and collaborate. The space is composed of mass plywood panels, columns, and beams, and is one of the first buildings in the country to use this next generation wood product. Nearly all materials incorporated in the design are locally sourced, including the mass plywood which is manufactured by Freres Lumber in Lyons, Oregon. Many of the wood products used are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), such as the Doulas Fir glulam columns and beams, Douglas Fir veneer panels and trim, and Hemlock wood slat ceilings and walls.
