WSU gearing up for wood

Washington State University recently announced they’re expanding– and sustainability is part of the plan. WSU’s new $45 million Paccar Environmental Technology Building will be home to five research and development centers. Students in sustainable design and construction, water quality, and atmospheric sciences will use the 96,000 square foot building for classes, labs, and studying.

It will also house testing laboratories for the Composite Materials and Engineering Center (CMEC). A portion of the building is framed in cross-laminated timber, exposing CMEC students directly to the materials they’re studying.
