Beaubois was on the design team for the Wayne Lyman Morse US Courthouse in Eugene. Because it was a Design Assist, this project required Beaubois' special talent on the design team.
The architects set down their objectives and Beaubois worked with them to translate their ideas into solid, achievable realities. Meanwhile, the building was going up and the pieces had to be fabricated at the plant! Thanks to flawless coordination, everything worked out perfectly.
The objectives were so well met that one of Beaubois' superintendents was among those recognized at the December 1, 2006 inauguration. The General Services Administration (GSA) presented him with a plaque for "his services above and beyond the call of duty during the construction of this new building". Out of the hundreds who worked on the project, our Superintendent was one of only six to receive this honour. It reflects upon our whole team.
Rays of wood follow the rounded contours of the walls and add to the building's unique character.
Six courtrooms, judges' chambers, libraries and an immense atrium share this 5-storey building's 270,000 ft.². They have one thing in common: their decors include furnishings and architectural woodwork with the Beaubois seal. Flat cut cherry and walnut are the woods most in evidence.
The building is equipped with the latest security systems used in American government buildings. It is designed so that there are separate traffic areas for the public, prisoners and judges.
The General Services Administration (GSA) honours Beaubois
During the opening ceremony of the Wayne Lyman Morse United States Courthouse in Eugene (OR) last December 1, one of Beaubois' superintendents received special recognition for his exceptional performance.
GSA awarded our Superintendent a plaque for "services and performance above and beyond the call of duty during the construction of this new building". Only six such plaques were awarded, out of the hundreds of people who were involved in the project.
This honour reflects upon a team with a unique approach to architectural woodwork, based on solid expertise and know-how that is a cut above the ordinary.
