The Conservation Resource Center is a new, permanent headquarters facility for the Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District. The building is being constructed at the District’s farm at 22055 S Beavercreek Road, Beavercreek, OR.
The new building is designed to look more like typical home construction and not like a typical commercial or government building. It will provide approximately 10,800 square feet of space for offices and meetings. The facility will be a one-story wood-framed structure built on a concrete slab. Siding will be cement fiber siding for fire resistance and longevity. Roofing will be composition shingles; solar panels will be mounted on the south-facing roof surface.
An open plaza behind the building will extend usable space during the spring, summer, and fall.
Three existing buildings were retained: the metal shop, an open equipment shed, and the old wooden barn.
The District supports protecting farmland and open space when possible. We positioned the new facility where the site had already been developed so that open fields and natural areas would not be lost.
