This award-winning, fast-track project consisted of the construction of two new buildings totaling 99,000 SF of space and the installation of more than 2,000 feet of utility tunnels within high-traffic areas of this busy university campus.
The single story 45,000 SF 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, 54,000 SF 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.
