The 98,000 square foot Forest Resources Building was designed to showcase Pennsylvania hardwood products. Leonard S. Fiore, Inc. was responsible for the millwork package of this project. Exposed structural elements of the building such as beams, trusses, and columns demonstrate the uses of wood and the beauty of natural elements. One of the unique features of this building was the installation of donated wood materials from many different manufacturers all across the United States incorporating over 15,000 linear feet of solid wood millwork and composite wood products such as Glulam.
