The 111 Main Tower project is a 510,000 square foot office tower constructed in downtown where virtually every component for construction has been brought on site as needed.  It was constructed in conjunction with, and attached to the Utah Performing Arts Center.  This is a design assist project and used a rarely attempted structural design that allows the floors to move independently from the core structure, along with an advanced seismic approach.  This required the plumbing and mechanical piping systems in the vertical high rise to allow this flexibility as well.  This is a LEED project and is on track to receive a Gold certification.  There are 22 occupied floors for office space using separate high rise and low rise HVAC systems, and an under floor air distribution system with fan powered VAV boxes for an efficient and comfortable environment.  Construction of this high rise was completed in under 24 months from the time the underground plumbing systems began.

The new Student Life Center is a 180,000 square foot, state of the art recreation center at the University of Utah campus.  The facility supports numerous activities and fitness training programs, housing areas such as a four story climbing wall, 50 meter lap pool, and 300 meter indoor track.  This is a LEED certified project with efficient plumbing and mechanical systems.  The HVAC systems are designed to support the different needs for particular areas of activity with more than 10 air handling systems serving the facility.  The natatorium space is conditioned with 48,000 CFM using custom indoor dehumidification units with energy recovery systems.  The building heating and domestic hot water systems are generated using the campus' high pressure and temperature hot water system converting water from over 400 degrees Fahrenheit and 400 psi to a lower temperature and pressure heating system for the building.  The plumbing systems support a large number of occupants while maintaining low water consumption fixtures.  The site allowed no room for storage and deliveries needed to be carefully coordinated to be as needed and ready to install.  The project was completed in just 16 months and opened on schedule.

The Church History Library is a LEED project with complicated technical HVAC systems including dehumidifiers and gaseous filtration required for the rare, valuable, and delicate items stored within.  Due to these types of systems needed, we commissioned this building at a higher level than what is required for LEED.  Due to its location, there was very limited laydown and deliveries had to be closely coordinated and brought in as needed.  This project was completed three months early.
