Owner:  CCRI, LLC
Architect:  Skidmore, Owens, & Merrill
Engineer:  WSP
Location:  Salt Lake City, UT
Contract:  $12,005,400.00
General Contractor:  Okland Construction

Completion Date:  July 2016
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.
