Hull Forest Products Makes Forest-to-Floor Wood Floors for Yale University

When Yale University new residential colleges architect Robert A.M. Stern  specified rift and quartersawn Red Oak floors from Yale’s own university forests,  Hull Forest Products  made that dream a reality.

As a woodland management service and a sawmill, Hull Forest Products was able to plan and undertake a timber harvest in Yale’s CT forest. Together with Red Oak logs from Yale’s NH forest, this timber became the stock for the flooring. Hull Forest Products trucked the logs to its Pomfret, CT sawmill, sawed them on its band saw, then air and kiln dried the lumber before custom milling it into the 5 inch wide solid Red Oak plank flooring that now graces the Benjamin Franklin and Pauli Murray Colleges.  This wood helped increase the percentage of locally sourced materials used in the project, helping it earn Gold LEED certification.

Wood flooring was used throughout the common areas of Pauli Murray and Benjamin Franklin Colleges, including the head of college houses.
