Congratulations to the Zwick Construction team who turned over Lewis Landing Industrial Park phase one, then landed an addition to the contract to complete phase two of the project, an identical building, and the tenant improvement projects within phase one. The owners are pleased with the progress and are excited to keep working with the team.
Phase one of Lewis Landing includes an 85,000 SF concrete tilt-up building. The wall panels reach up to 40 feet tall (32-foot interior clear) and weigh 210,000 pounds each. At full capacity, the building has space for four tenants; however, phase one will house two tenants, whose office and warehouse space the project team is currently working on completing. The building, along with future phase two, sit on a 12-acre property.
At the start of construction, teams began by installing a ten-foot retaining wall on the east of the property. They also had to cut 20 feet into the hillside on the west, creating a more level site.
Leveling the property was just the first of a few challenges the project team faced. Most notably, the project team worked heavily with UDOT to improve the highly-trafficked 2100 North by adding an acceleration/deceleration lane. Construction activities required one lane of traffic to be closed on and off for a few weeks. Moreover, the team improved the residential street north of the property.
As with most projects in Utah, Lewis Landing was affected by the lengthy, intense winter. Various phases of the project took longer than expected due to excessive amounts of snow. Even still, notwithstanding the consistent snow removal, the project was delivered in thirteen months. The first tenants will move in next week.
Thanks to the project team on successfully delivering this project.
