Cedar City Utah Temple
Cedar City, UT: Cedar City Utah Temple
OWNER: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
ARCHITECT: Arch Nexus
Zwick Construction delivered the Cedar City Utah Temple to the owners in September 2017. Ground was broken on this temple on August 8, 2015.
The structure has three floors above ground and a full basement. At the top of the third floor is a mezzanine. The concrete walls support the integrity of the building and could endure a major earthquake. They are 15 inches thick and prevent the temple from swaying and twisting. The footings of the temple are 8 feet wide and 40 inches deep.
The interiors are finished in level-five finishes, with high-end millwork, tile and wall coverings. Much of the design was changed at 50% completion, requiring an amended construction schedule to ensure timely delivery of this new Cedar City, UT landmark.
