About the Facilities on Our Tour

The corporate office for First Tech Federal Credit Union is a 5 story, 156,000 SF office building. At the time of its completion in 2018 this project was the largest glulam and cross-laminated timber (CLT) building in the United States. The building achieved LEED Gold certification. The building received the WoodWork’s 2020 U.S. Design Award Winner for Jury’s Choice and was also named one of ENR’s 2019 Best of the Best winners.

The 89,000 SF Wingspan Event Center, completed in September of 2020, utilizes mass timber CLT roof panels, long-span steel truss work, and large glulam beams. This project has been honored with the 2020 Excellence in Structural Engineering Award by SEAO (Structural Engineers Association of Oregon).

The two story 51,100 SF Hidden Creek Community Center, completed in 2022, is designed to integrate harmoniously into a new 20-acre community park. Constructed with tilt-up concrete walls and cross-laminated timber (CLT), this project is the nation’s first mass timber community center with a post and beam frame supporting CLT floor and roof planes. This project received the WoodWorks 2022 Regional Excellence Award.

We're excited to see each of these amazing structures and materials! Register today to join OBOA members and colleagues on this exclusive tour.

   Earn ICC CEUs at this Meeting 

This Spring QBM is an approved course through the International Code Council Preferred Provider Program (ICC PPP) for 5 in-person hours (0.5 CEUs). A Certificate of Attendance will be emailed to participants upon completion.

OBOA is an approved International Code Council (ICC) Preferred Provider. The Preferred Provider Program recognizes and promotes ICC-approved educational offerings as they relate to codes, standards and guidelines, as well as building construction materials, products and methods. ICC certificate holders may obtain ICC CEUs from Preferred Providers that can be applied toward the renewal requirements of ICC’s certification program. It is the intent of OBOA that all programs will offer approved CEUs through the Preferred Provider Program. An ICC CEU is a continuing education unit; each 10 clock hours of continuing education equals 1 CEU.

ICC PPP Approved | 5 In-Person Hours | 0.50 CEUs

All OBOA educational programs (trainings, QBMs, classes/sessions; all courses) are approved courses through the International Code Council (ICC) Preferred Provider Program (PPP). These hours can be applied to ICC certification renewal as continuing education credits as indicated for each class (typically between 5-6 for each but varies per program). Please check with your appropriate jurisdiction and/or institution regarding your specific continuing education credit needs. Our typical one-day seminar or institute class has 6 hours of instruction, or 0.6 CEUs.
