Today at 10:00AM we delivered and signed-over the Cedar City Utah Temple to the owner's representatives. During the next four weeks, they'll oversee the final touches and furnishings as they prepare for the public open house, lasting from October 27 - November 18, 2017.
Ground was broken on this temple on August 8, 2015. Upon the owner’s commissioning, it will become the 17th temple in Utah, serving the needs of South Central Utah and parts of Eastern Nevada. The structure is more than 42,000 SF with 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 ammended construction schedule to ensure timely delivery of this new Cedar City, UT landmark.
