USU’s Brigham City Campus is a hallmark for northern Utah and is quickly becoming a community hub for residents.
The design of the campus itself was unique and innovative with an open and inviting central hub for visitors and staff. Though many of the materials were fairly standard, their application was anything but typical. The geometry of the building was extremely challenging for layout, construction, and systems routing, with a final result that is interesting and engaging. The building’s unique design proved challenging to construct with five distinct and independent structures that tie together with a complex expansion and contraction joint system. Cloud-based software applications were utilized to flag any perceived deficiencies and immediately notified subcontractors of any needed correction.
