Project Description

Signature Project

WHPacific provided civil engineering and landscape architectural services for the new 25,000 square foot Energy plant on the OSU campus, which was awarded a LEED Platinum certification, the first platinum-rated power facility in the nation. The new Energy Center replaced a 90-year-old heat plant that had failing boilers and serious seismic issues. The new plant is a cogeneration facility that combines heating and electricity generation, allowing OSU to generate nearly half of its electrical needs on site. That approach is calculated to lower the university’s energy costs by around $650k/year, and dramatically reduce its carbon footprint.

WHPacific provided on-site civil design including grading, water, and sanitary sewer.  Working closely with both University and City of Corvallis, we provided public improvement design for 35th street adjacent to the new Energy Center.  Landscape architectural services include site hardscape design concepts for the Energy Center and the Jefferson Way Master Plan, on-site planting, and central control irrigation design.
