SMD Mechanical Engineering – Adaptive Reuse Project – Salt Lake City

Turning a former iron and steel facility, the Silver Bros. Iron Works, into the latest and greatest in creative office space downtown called for a little … shall we say … INDUSTRY?

As an adaptive reuse project, the design team utilized the existing structure and the building’s innate character as the starting point. Lofted ceilings, restored clerestory and streaming natural light are juxtaposed with the geometric shaped hallways and offices, creating a non-linear experience for visitors and tenants to the 300,000 SF building.

Updating the building from a single story to a two-level structure within the existing single story required ample amounts of steel work, incorporating 50 tons of structural steel and slightly under 32,000 bolts.

Its common spaces are quiet in nature—the artistic murals, colors, fabrics and textures are understated and allow for a calming ambiance. This allows for customized tenant spaces to be the focal point of the 130,000-SF of creative office inside.

INDUSTRY Salt Lake City showcases how one building can be a catalyst for reimagined communities.
