Our very own, Tom Baughman, has volunteered his time with the Oregon State University Capstone class for the past three years. Tom has been asked to serve as a member on the OSU Civil Engineering Capstone Advisory Panel. Some of his responsibilities as a member will include meeting twice a year to review student designs, attend presentations, and provide comments on student work.
In May of 2019 the Madden and Baughman team moved to our new address at 1500 SW 1st Avenue Suite 630, Portland, OR 97201.
Congratulations to Webster Wilson, Architect, for being acknowledged with a Merit Award for this accessory dwelling unit in North Portland.

Congratulations to NOA Architecture. Madden & Baughman engineered this glass enclosed structure which continues to receive recognition. Recently, the Boston Society of Architects presented this residence with an Honor Award
We're pleased to work with Surround Architecture in the completion of this concrete masonry and wood office building and and adjacent metal building warehouse, completed spring of 2017 with CS Construction, General Contractor
We've posted earlier on this balloon framed, two story, residence in rural Pennsylvania. Cutler Anderson provided a twist on the barn door with two story tall wood sliders. 2017 American Institute of Architects Award winner.
In collaboration with 2Form Architecture in Eugene, and Six Degrees Construction, we're pleased to see the completion of this residence. The heavy timber framed residence combined Timberlinx fasteners for the main post to beam connections and the pool roof had a steel WT and wood flitch beam to support a green roof. The wood members were fabricated off site in a controlled environment to regulate the moisture content of the wood components of the flitch beam.
Portland-based Hacker Architects wins three international awards
Created on Monday, 06 February 2017 | Written by Jules Rogers |
The Black Butte Ranch Lakeside - or Bistro/Pool/Recreation Complex - was the only project recognized with three awards.
Three international awards went to a Portland-based architecture firm to celebrate the use of wood as material.
Portland-based Hacker Architects received three Wood Design Awards this January for one project in Central Oregon. The Wood Design Awards celebrate projects at the forefront of architecture and design.
Hacker won a merit award for Lakeside at Black Butte Ranch and two sponsorship awards from the Sustainable Forest Initiative and Western Red Cedar.
SUBMITTED: JEREMY BITTERMANN - Lakeside, the only design to win three Wood Design Awards, is located in Central Oregon.
Madden & Baughman and Cutler Anderson Architects are pleased to see the nearing completion of this residence in rural Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Congratulations to Hacker Architects and Kirby Nagelhout Construction, for winning a Merit Award for the Lakeside Buildings at Black Butte Ranch in Sisters, Oregon

5 Wood Framed Housing Building on Structure Parking on Bainbridge Island, Washington with Cutler Anderson Architects
The Pavilion, a new outdoor sports facility for the Bend Parks and Recreation District, is nearing completion and will soon host ice skating, hockey, and other ice sports on a new seasonal ice rink. The outdoor rink, which will operate for five months each year, is covered by a 28,000-sf steel framed roof. During the off season, the facility will convert to outdoor sport courts and will host basketball, tennis, volleyball and even pickle ball.
The Pavilion will rent equipment, sell concessions and provide locker rooms for drop-in users and for competing teams. The facility will also have meeting rooms and viewing areas for events on the rink and sport courts.
For more information about the Pavilion, visit the Bend Parks and Recreation District's web site at http://bendparksandrec.org/the-pavilion/.
The National Design Specification for Wood Construction - the wood design code - provides wood material properties such as allowable bending stress and modulus of elasticity based in part on lumber grade.
When we analyze existing wood-framed or heavy-timber buildings, lumber grade is usually unknown. One way to make a reasonable determination of grade - and to avoid undervaluing high-quality existing construction - is to follow the procedures outlined in "A Grading Protocol for Structural Lumber and Timber in Historic Structures," published by the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training."
The protocol provides a way for design professionals to use physical features of wood members such as grain angle, knot size and location, and the presence of checking to estimate lumber grade for use in design and analysis.
The document, along with a Microsoft Access database file to help simplify the grade estimation process, are available for free from the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training.
Madden & Baughman is pleased to see the opening of three new buildings at Black Butte Ranch in Sisters, Oregon. Thomas Hacker & Associates designed the low-sloped roofs to frame views of the nearby mountains. The buildings include a new pool house, locker room, bistro, and recreational barn and they were framed with 5x14 cedar posts and a combination of steel girders and glulams. The window frames were load-bearing and wind-resisting glulam posts designed in collaboration with Westview Systems of Dallas, Oregon.
Congratulations to THA and contractor Kirby Nagelhout!

Madden & Baughman completed a rigging analysis for a Cirque du Soleil production in Portland, Oregon’s Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
Built in 1958, the Coliseum roof trusses were designed to support weight from suspended equipment for concerts and other arena events. However, the combined weight of equipment for “Varekai”, the 2015 production from Cirque, exceeded the arena’s specified maximum weight for event rigging.
Using original building drawings, historic steel codes, and information gathered on site, Madden & Baughman analyzed the roof trusses for rigging loads provided by Cirque du Soleil and assisted the building operator in determining rigging configurations to safely distribute the loads to the roof trusses. After the rigging was installed, Cirque du Soleil performed to sold-out audiences from May 6 to May 10, 2015.
