Project Description

Fairbanks Hall is one of the most historic and enduring buildings on the Corvallis campus. Built in 1892 and considered a contributing resource in OSU’s national historic district, the 3-story, 26,000 SF wood structure has been in continuous use as classrooms, faculty offices and (more recently) a gallery space. OSU intends to renew the structure so it can continue to play a role on campus long into the future.

The comprehensive renovation will create critically needed space in the currently unfinished fourth floor; reduce building energy costs with planned energy conservation measures; support recruitment and retention of faculty and students; and for the first time, be fully accessible to all students, faculty and OSU visitors.
