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.
