- Honorable Mention, Renovation Over $5 Million, 2016
In 2015, Big-D Construction completed a $21 million remodel of the 300,000 square foot O.C. Tanner office headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah. As part of the project, Big-D demolished 16,000 square feet of the two-story building and constructed a 20,000 square foot Grand Entry with exterior plazas, fountains, conference rooms, and a lecture hall. The project was a success and completed with minimal disruptions to the more than 1,000 employees on campus.
Following that project, Big-D crews started work on the O.C. Tanner Corporate Headquarters Re-skin project. During this phase, crews are removing the existing exterior façade and replacing it with approximately 27,000 square feet of new vertical exterior façade glass. The building itself is a local landmark that first housed the Salt Lake Library back in 1906. The addition will help give the office building a modern look. The project also includes the demolition of the existing landscape that is located east of campus. Crews added new plants, trees, light fixtures, brick pavers, and a new water fountain..
