St. George, UT: Utah Tech University Education Building
OWNER: Utah Tech University
ARCHITECT: Naylor Wentworth Lund
SIZE: 40,000 SF
The “Old Science Building” on Utah Tech University campus was originally built in the 1960s. With the building sitting nearly vacant for the past few years, the owners decided to create more administrative and educational spaces for the College of Education by hiring Zwick Construction to complete a building-wide renovation.
At the start of the project in November 2021, teams gutted the entire space, then installed new MEP systems. The project had a strict delivery deadline in August 2022 since the building will be used for classes in the fall semester; the team delivered the project ahead of schedule.
Because construction took place on a busy university campus, the team continually took precautions to keep the students and faculty of the campus safe, such as fencing and monitoring construction areas.
The project received a 4.95 DFCM rating.
