Since 1965 we’ve successfully completed – as a general or steel contractor – some of the West’s most difficult and demanding construction projects.

Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple

Adams & Smith was proud to participate in the construction of the Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple. As a structural steel erector we built the steel structure that will support the building.

Begun in 2007 the Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple is scheduled to be completed in 2009. For more information on the project visit the official website.

Utah State Capitol

The Utah State Capitol Retrofit

Adams & Smith was invited to participate in the seismic retrofit of Utah’s State Capitol building. This project included the addition of steel to shore up the structure. Following retrofit the capital now is rated to be able to withstand a 7.3 magnitude earthquake.

As with the retrofit and renovation of the Tabernacle on Temple Square, Adams & Smith placed special emphasis on adding structural integrity without compromising the historic nature of the building.

Tabernacle on Temple Square

Adding New Steel

Adams & Smith proudly participated in the renovation and seismic retrofitting of the LDS Tabernacle in Salt Lake City Utah. This project reinforced the pioneer era structure, giving the building the strength to withstand earthquakes and to stand for another 130 years.

Completed in 1875 the Tabernacle on Temple Square provided a unique challenge of marrying a steel structure with the celebrated latticework of timbers that supports the domed roof. Originally built using the materials and methods available at the time, timbers were bent to the shape needed and joined together using wooden pegs and wrapped in rawhide for additional strength. By reinforcing the timberwork as well as the 44 piers with steel and concrete, the building has been significantly strengthened.


When Novell decided to move from it’s Orem Campus and build a new tower in Provo, Adams & Smith was there to provide the experience and expertise necessary to furnish and install the structural steel for the building that would become a landmark in the Provo/Orem area.

UNLV Arena

Adams and smith played a key role in the construction of the Thomas-Mack Arena at UNLV. As the steel erector for the project we took on the challenge of installing trusses that spanned the full unsupported 324 foot length of the roof.
