Project Description

Marriott Library

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH

The Marriott Library, located on the Wasatch fault, was renovated utilizing 128 buckling restrained braces to improve the seismic stability of the structure to withstand a 7.2 magnitude earthquake. SME Steel also fabricated and erected an automated storage and retrieval facility adjacent to the library which operates four fifty-foot robots. The reconfiguration and erection process skillfully operated two cranes in tandem around a five foot roof overhang. Impressively, the library remained open and uninterrupted during the project and was completed in record time.
