University of Oregon - Stair Treads

The Knight Campus reshapes the education landscape in Oregon by training new scientists with opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. Swinerton Mass Timber provided engineering, procurement, and construction services for the 20,000-square-foot mass timber scope, including a two-story CLT mezzanine, three-story CLT connector bridge, and glulam/CLT staircases.

Vaagen Timbers fabricated the custom spiral stair case using glulam treads, including installation of stainless steel tread inserts, and application of 2 coats "Precision Coat Purity Floor" as a finished coating.
