City and County Building
The City and County Building in Salt Lake City, Utah, was completed in the Richardsonian Romanesque style in 1893 to the design of the architects Monheim, Bird and Proudfoot to house jointly the city and county government. This 160,000 square foot sandstone building is located in an active seismic area and posed two fundamental challenges: first, to convert a 100-year-old building into a 21st-century facility; second, to make the building seismically safe without losing the sense of history, the very fact that made saving the building important. This project is the first historic building in the US to incorporate base isolation
This groundbreaking project has won numerous national and regional awards for restoration, renovation and the use of innovative technical solutions.
