Oregon State University Student Experience Center

Corvallis, OR

Code Unlimited provided several consulting services to Opsis Architecture for the Student Experience Center at Oregon State University. The SEC Building at Oregon State University contains a central open stair that required fire and code analysis to ensure life safety of the students. Code Unlimited reviewed the building and drafted an AM&M for providing equivalent protection for the open stair that was approved by the City of Corvallis. After the initial approval, a public art piece was then designed for the open stair area, which required further research and analysis on meeting the requirements of an atrium. Code Unlimited assisted with meeting these requirements again, including a witnessed performance test using a visible smoke generating device.
