City Creek Center Project - Utah - Okland Construction
In the heart of downtown Salt Lake City is positioned one of the largest buildng development projects in the United States, which will create a vibrant and attractive city center. Collaboration with downtown business centers, the City Creek is an integral part of downtown life. Construction began in November 2006 with a completion date scheduled for 2012.This four year project Encompass’s nearly three square city blocks. A-Core has been on this project since they first started demolition and are still here two years later, and will be working here until completion.
We have saw cut thousands of linear feet of concrete as well as core drilled thousands of holes. Estimates suggest that before project completion we will have saw cut and drilled well into the tens of thousands of holes and linear feet. On this project, diamond wire sawing has also been a proven technique for contractors. Thousands of square feet up to 30' deep have been cut using our diamond wire sawing methods.
We demolished The Eagle Gate section of the City Creek project, which included complete demolition of the Deseret First Credit Union building. Demolition of this office building consisted of completely removing the interriors of 14-stories. Despite the strict scheduling constraints and adverse work conditions, we have completed every aspect of concrete sawing, drilling and demolition required for the succesful completion of this project.
