Restore Oregon, a non-profit dedicated to preserving Oregon’s historic resources, announced the winners of its 2016 DeMuro Awards, which included Hennebery Eddy’s OSU Strand Ag Hall. Named for the late developer Art DeMuro, the DeMuro Awards honor historic rehabilitation projects throughout the state of Oregon that demonstrate “exceptional quality, creativity and community impact from the restoration and reuse of historic properties.”

As one of Oregon’s top restoration projects, Restore Oregon judges praised Hennebery Eddy’s work on Strand Ag Hall. Once dark and dismal, OSU’s Strand Ag Hall has been transformed into “a stunning and vibrant center of education and student life,” according to Restore Oregon.
