The new 89,000-square-foot Wingspan Event and Conference Center complex includes both an exposition hall and a state-of-the-art conference center, complete with a commercial kitchen, concessions, offices, advanced audio and visual system, and an outdoor exhibit area to better serve the growing capabilities of the Westside Commons, formerly known as the Washington County Fair Complex.

The project features a glulam and CLT “butterfly roof” structure over steel-framed galleries and circulation areas. Swinerton-constructed mass timber and CLT panels greet visitors in the lobbies, while mega trusses and structural steel make up the structure in the event areas.
