The Anthony Timberlands Center in Design and Materials Innovation has received a substantial new donation.
The Nabholz Charitable Foundation has committed $100,000 in support to the center, which is part of the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design at the University of Arkansas. This gift is part of the university’s $1.45 billion capital campaign, Capital Arkansas.
“When we first heard about this project, we realized the Anthony Timberlands Center would serve as the epicenter for mass timber design in Arkansas and beyond,” Charles Nabholz, chairman emeritus, said in a statement. “With Nabholz having delivered the university’s first mass timber project, Adohi Hall, just a year ago, we know personally how bright the future is for timber and wood design initiatives. We’re proud to assist the University of Arkansas as it takes this critical step in preparing students to design in an ever-evolving world.”
The university will determine a specific naming opportunity for the Nabholz Chartiable Foundation within the Anthony Timberlands Center at a later date.
Nabholz Construction Corporation is also the contractor for the new center, which will be designed by Grafton Architects of Dublin Ireland.
