Cranes, trucks and clouds of dust are a familiar site across the Oregon State University campus as construction to develop private student housing continues. Around 12 projects are set to begin this fall and winter which will give a much needed boost to the local economy and the construction industry.
Steve Clark, VP for university relations and marketing said, “This is probably the most intense period of construction that Oregon State University has seen in 146 years, both in terms of the number of projects and complexity.”
At The Refinishing Touch we’re always excited to learn about new construction projects, especially in the higher education sector where there is an ever-present need to improve on-campus housing. We hope that during the redevelopment eco-friendly initiatives are considered, as even small changes can make a big difference. As a company fully invested in sustainability and green alternatives we actively encourage any industry taking on large scale projects to carefully consider the environmental impact and make changes where possible.
