Explain the project and its unique use of masonry materials and techniques.
A lustrous, stately physical presence that conveys the fundamental qualities of permanence and warm beauty was achieved using Bavarian Gold Limestone extracted from bench level 15-16 which is the upper layers of the Jura Quarries in Bavaria. The blocks consisted of (18 pieces) 60M3. The stone conveys the beauty and poetry of limestone, with the hardness and durability qualities of granite.
Materials were selected for their beauty, earth toned colors and timelessness.
Project fabrication took 4 months once shop drawings and cutting tickets were approved. The blocks were available in China, and Germany, and fabricated both in China and in Utah.
Cut to size material was delivered by vessel and took 4 weeks to arrive to CA. then placed on rail to SLC.
A unique feature was the 3.5” cantilever insulated wall system which consisted of 2” insulation then applied a diamond mesh which was scratch coated out to create a plumb substraight. A crack ISO was applied prior to the adhered wall system. Engineering was a big part to determine the proper amount of screws and placement to support the cantilever.
