Project Description

Provo City Center Temple

PROVO, UTAH

The Provo City Center Temple, weighing in at 7 million pounds, was raised onto 40-foot-high steel stilts to allow excavation underneath. Two lower levels and an underground parking structure went into this space. This gutted shell is all that remains after a fire destroyed much of the structure five years earlier. Steel ties were placed around the brick layers to hold them into place. Three interior levels were fabricated and erected including four corner spiral steel staircases designed to mimic the original wooden staircases. The roof was designed to replicate the original roof including the center tower, measuring 160 feet from the ground, and which now supports the addition of a 13-foot golden angel statue.
