Salt Lake City, UT
Located on the VA campus, this five-story 110,00 sf office building houses both administrative and medical facilities and has since been joined to Phase I by a pedestrian bridge that crosses Red Butte Creek. The ground level provides access to the creek and trail. High-density storage is the primary function on the ground level requiring a precise super-level floor for its operation.
The main level has a highly detailed Class A lobby as an entrance to the facility. Audiology and Dental services require specialized equipment such as sound booths and vacuum systems. Each department within the VA functions independently but requires particular adjacencies to supporting administrative functions. Special attention was given to each department while meeting the overall project goals and coordinating larger project needs, such as security and access control.
