Redmond Public Safety Building


Status: In Design

Carpentry Plus Inc was awarded the early design-assist, as well as the supply-install for the mass timber and light-framing on the Redmond Public Safety Building. Through thoughtful re-design and collaboration with the EOR and architect, CPI was able to help save the owner over an anticipated amount of $400,000 from the original cost of work. Cross-laminated timber stairs are featured in the main lobby space, and their inherent strength against blasts was one of the reasons that they will be used to encompass the building perimeter. There will still be plenty of openings around the perimeter for the staff to be able to enjoy the surrounding views of the mountains and Smith Rock. The natural wood of the CLT and glulam will be left exposed and used architecturally to bring a warmth to the interior. The design team believed that “the connection to nature is a key component of trauma informed design”, which was one of the key factors in choosing mass timber as the building’s structural system. This project is set to begin construction in Summer of 2024.
