BYU LAUNDRY, MAINTENANCE, & EMERGENCY FACILITY
PROVO, UT: LAUNDRY, MAINTENANCE, AND EMERGENCY FACILITY
OWNER: Brigham Young University
ARCHITECT: MHTN Architects
During the preconstruction process, Zwick worked with the design team and BYU to achieve the project budget and compress the scheduling by 15%, delivering the facility in 11 months.
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.
