An ambitious midrise called Paradigm at Pearl was built near the University of Oregon campus, a 4-story, $13 million residential building that satisfies a growing demand for quality student housing. For this project, which was among the first LEED-certified midrise structures west of the Mississippi, Rosboro provided a comprehensive framing package of approximately 225,000 feet of kiln-dried, #2 Douglas fir studs.
Paradigm at Pearl totals 138 bedrooms and 80,000 square feet. A 30-member framing crew worked at a steady clip to frame one floor every 1.5 weeks, and to meet their exact specifications, Rosboro cut custom lengths of 2 x 4 and 2 x 6 at 102-5/8″ and 114-5/8″.
“This scale of project on a strict timetable requires great coordination and a completely reliable source of building materials,” said Joe Beechler of Shelter Products Inc., the Paradigm project’s lead distributor. “Rosboro’s framing package of D-fir studs at custom lengths was precisely what we needed and it’s been delivered on-site spot on time at every stage.”
Rosboro is proud to meet the framing requirements of this impressive, energy-efficient building that will provide quality housing for our U of O students for generations to come.
