Explain the project and its unique use of masonry materials and techniques:
In designing this building, the rich academic history was taken into consideration. The use of masonry on the exterior of the building is set to give the feeling of what a traditional academic building should look like.
The tower feature is an icon for education that was used in a creative way to integrate the original structure of the building which dates back to 1905, prior to that some of the remnants of this campus date back to the 1870’s with the Brigham Young College.
A comprehensive phasing strategy was used to maintain student safety and cause the least amount of distraction to the learning environment for the students. All deliveries areas had to be scheduled and timed to avoid disrupting student access to and from classrooms and bus drop off and pick up times. A great deal of effort and stringent safety precautions went in to assuring that student and construction areas were kept separate.
Mason craftsmanship is showcased throughout the installation of custom blended structural CMU, brick veneer, structural brick, and precast concrete. Masonry columns, arches, soldier courses, and accent stacked bond panels throughout the addition blend seamlessly with the 100-year-old structure gives this project a timeless and elegant feel.
