Salt Lake City Memorial House Structural Upgrades

Archiplex Group was retained by Salt Lake City Corporation to provide structural stabilization and upgrade for a bearing wall / retaining wall that supported the roof of the building and supported the building against the adjacent hillside. The repair work consisted of a new MSE wall preliminarily designed by BHB Engineers and new shotcrete walls outboard of the structure all design-built by the awarded contractor. Masonry wall repairs were necessary to conceal the new reinforcing. The details of the design were carefully reviewed with the City and the Heritage Foundation, tenants in the Memorial House. All of this work needed to be accomplished in a manner that allowed the building to continue its normal use as a special events venue with minimal disruption.
