General Engineering Building

Historic Renovation
PROJECT DETAILS:Salt Lake City, UT  Architect: Max Smith

Built in 1906, the building served as a residence and as the laboratory for the owner’s mining technique experiments. Although on the National Historical Register, years of neglect rendered it uninhabitable. Purchased by gallery owners to be used for gallery and retail space, this imaginative renovation included artists from the outset. Based on the owners’ desires to make the process a true collaboration, the architect, engineers,artists and general contractor attended all meetings from the inception of the project. The project received national recognition for the innovative design and construction of artistic concrete.
