U of U Kennecott Building

Salt Lake City, UT

Engineer: Reaveley Engineers + Associates

Architect: MJSA

The existing Kennecott Building was renovated to fill the need of the expanding College of Engineering at the University of Utah campus.  A seismic study of the existing building revealed the need to upgrade the lateral force resisting system.  CoreBrace BRBs provided a cost effective and aesthetic solution for the building design team.  Much of the structure has been left exposed to give the students occupying the space a form of “hands-on” learning.
