Roy O. Martin Corrigan OSB, LLC


ANF Architects was asked by longtime client Roy O Martin Lumber Company to design an Administration Building for Roy O. Martin’s or their brand new OSB (oriented strand board) Manufacturing Facility in Corrigan, Texas. This state-of-the-art facility is expected to employ 165 people. It includes facility administration, a large training space, meeting rooms, forestry management, shower/locker facilities, as well as, a full-time nurse & chaplain.

The design scope includes: A training facility for employees that will double as a community gathering space for yearly workshops; both private and open offices; a HR department; a wellness suite with nurse's area and exam room; showers; lockers; document control area; and a large conference room that was also designed as a storm shelter. The building design also includes a trucker's scale that will be used for weighing lumber as it enters the plant.

Construction on the Administrative building wrapped up in June of 2016, with full plant start-up anticipated by the fall of 2017. Corrigan OSB, L.L.C. will complement Martco L.L.C.’s existing wood-product manufacturing plants in Oakdale, Louisiana (OSB); Chopin, Louisiana (plywood); and Mexia, Alabama (lumber and timbers).

A versatile structural wood panel, OSB is commonly used in the construction of residential and multifamily housing, as well as in a variety of other applications. ROM’s strong family ties to all things wood drove many interior finish decisions. They have been captains of a strong forestry stewardship for decades. The OSB panel products that will be manufactured on site are also featured in the millwork throughout the building. With the exception of the storm shelter, all the doors and running trim are solid Oak. The color palette is warm earth tones hearkening to the surrounding forest.

Designed with all wood frame construction, exposed timber columns, and T-111 siding clad the exterior, roof, and wall sheathing. Nearly all of the wood materials used in this project were produced in the owner’s factories.
