The design involved re-cladding the entire building with brick and precast concrete, new windows, new electrical lighting and fire protection systems, new energy efficient mechanical systems and new finishes.

The first floor was enclosed integrating new shear walls into the architecture, providing additional departmental office and conference space. The $2.6 million Phase 1 project involving the Office Wing was completed in 2009 and the $1.5 million Phase 2 Classroom Wing was completed in 2010.

Green Building Services provided consulting services relating to LEED certification.  The recommendations were followed but the project was not submitted for certification.  PAE Engineering and KPFF Consulting Engineers were the MEP and Structural engineers on this project.

WOU Bellamy Hall




Bellamy Hall at Western Oregon University is a three story, concrete and steel, 35,000 square foot classroom and faculty office building built in 1964.  

McBride Architecture was retained for programming, schematic design, and design development services relating to upgrading the building to current seismic and energy standards, to improve the building’s fit into the campus architecture and to extend the building’s life by at least 50 years.

A two phase seismic upgrade project was defined and budgeted at $5,071,000 in 2007.  

The project involved architectural, mechanical and electrical upgrades to meet WOU campus standards, state mandated SEED requirements and utilization of a FEMA grant for seismic upgrade.
