BYU LAUNDRY, MAINTENANCE, & EMERGENCY FACILITY
PROVO, UT: LAUNDRY, MAINTENANCE & EMERGENCY FACILITY
OWNER: Brigham Young University
ARCHITECT: MHTN Architects
This award-winning, fast-track project consisted of the construction of two new buildings and the installation of more than 2,000 feet of utility tunnels within high-traffic areas of this busy university campus.
The single-story central laundry facility handles all of BYU’s laundry for residential services and those of the Missionary Training Center.
The adjacent maintenance facility is a single-story, mixed-use building that combines office space, multiple vehicle bays, tool shop, storage rooms, and multiple shipping and receiving docks.
Construction of the buildings required the demolition of seven student housing apartments, and was built within a functioning family student housing community, requiring special attention to site safety and security.
Construction was 14-month schedule, but the project was completed in 11 months with the heavy use of BIM technology to coordinate the complex MEP systems.
This complex was chosen as the merit design winner in the 2015 Excellence in Masonry Design Award ceremony by the Utah Masonry Council.
