Big-D Volunteers at Utah Fire Base Camp

Two of the largest wildfires in the country are currently burning in Utah County. The Pole Creek fire has burned more than 95,700 acres and is about 30% contained. The Bald Mountain Fire has burned 17,600 acres and is about 12% contained. The fires have forced the evacuation of thousands of residents and has burned a combined 113,000 acres.

Thursday night, Big-D Construction volunteered some time at the firefighter base camp. The construction firm brought out its signature Ice Cream Truck out and handed out some treats to the firefighters during a shift change at base camp.

Big-D Construction wants to thank all the firefighters, police officers, and emergency personnel for your dedication to protecting lives and property during these destructive fires. For more information on these fires and relief efforts, click here.

Ribbon-Joining Ceremony for New Workforce Training & Education Center

There is a demand for skilled workers in the State of Utah. The new Salt Lake Community College Westpointe Workforce Training & Education Center will hopefully attract more workers into vocational career paths.

Big-D Construction recently completed the new 121,000 square-foot facility that provides classroom and workspace for programs such as advanced composites, welding fabrication, solar energy, and commercial driver licensing. The Westpointe Workforce Training & Education Center also includes 34 labs and a diesel truck driving range. The Center officially opened to students in August 2018.

During a ribbon-joining ceremony in September, lawmakers noted the importance of the Training & Education Center to help train those in careers that are seeing unprecedented shortages during a time when Utah’s economy and population are growing. One lawmaker noted that wages are directly tied to the ability to “use our hands.” The ribbon-joining ceremony highlighted the efforts of the community to join together to make the Westpointe Workforce Training & Education Center a reality.

Groundbreaking on Weber State University Athletic Complex

Big-D Construction is continuing a longstanding relationship with Weber State University with work on a new athletics facility on campus. Just before the Wildcats first home football game at Stewart Stadium, the official groundbreaking ceremony was held to officially kickoff the project.

Once complete, the new building will house strength and conditioning facilities for student athletes. There will also be a 125-seat team meeting room, as well as new football locker rooms, coaches’ offices, and an equipment room. The project is expected to be complete ahead of the 2019 football season.
According to the Standard-Examiner Newspaper, money for the project was raised from private donors and former players. The NCAA also provided the school with a $700,000 grant for academic spaces in the new facility.

Weber State had hoped to break a world record for most people to participate in a groundbreaking event. The school fell just short of the groundbreaking mark of 6,256. Fans who did participate received their own commemorative mini shovels. The project is being performed with VCBO Architecture.

Ribbon-Cutting for Hospital Expansion Project

Big-D Construction has a longstanding relationship with Intermountain Healthcare. Recently, Big-D’s Lindon office completed an expansion project at Sevier Valley Hospital in Richfield, Utah. This month, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at the hospital to signal the completion of the project.

Intermountain Healthcare’s Sevier Valley Hospital serves the populations of three Utah rural counties: Sevier, Wayne, and Paiute. Intermountain Healthcare recognized the growing need of the health services provided by the medical facility and moved forward with plans to remodel and expand the hospital. During this phase, Big-D expanded the hospital’s emergency room and the hospital’s labor and delivery ward.

In addition, Big-D added new waiting room and medical offices. This is the second expansion project completed by Big-D at Sevier Valley Hospital. In 2013, the construction firm completed a major remodel and addition project at the hospital.

‘Topping Off’ the Park Avenue Medical Office Building

A milestone celebration for the Park Avenue project in Sugar House, Utah.

The final steel work for the University of Utah Health’s Sugar House Health Center is complete. In honor of this milestone, a formal “topping off” celebration was held at the project site. As part of tradition, a small portion of the final beam was painted, and representatives from the University of Utah were on hand to sign the beam that was hoisted up, along with a ceremonial tree. The tree will eventually be planted in the neighboring Sugar House Park.

Once complete, the health care center will feature a number of services for patients. The Park Avenue project also features an underground parking structure and a new 6-story office building that will be adjacent to the health care center.
