K-12 students and their science teachers in Central Oregon will have a new space for experiments, research and training at Bend Science Station Learning Laboratories. Hennebery Eddy was recently selected to design the new building on the Oregon State University-Cascades campus, and the new facility is scheduled to break ground in October 2016 and open for classes in September 2017.
Excerpt from an article in the Portland Business Journal sharing the building’s progress:
The new building will allow BSS to increase its capacity, deliver new programming and develop new partnerships, including collaboration with OSU-Cascades in the teaching and learning of science. It will also give young students an early look at a university campus.
“We are excited to be working with Hennebery Eddy – they clearly stand out as a qualified firm based on their experience designing innovative buildings that fit seamlessly into existing campus spaces,” said David Bermudez, executive director for Bend Science Station, in the release. “The depth of their design team with a designated K-12 lab architect brings efficiency, competence and creativity to our project.”
