Changes at TSA Architects

It’s been a busy summer!

We’ve been burning both ends the past several months to accomplish some major projects – including a couple specifically for our firm!

We have relocated to a new office at 1486 S. 1100 E. in Sugarhouse. We’re excited to have a space designed by our talented team and are especially enjoying having our own parking lot.
In addition to a new office, we’ve also launched an all-new website, completely re-imagined from the ground up – take a look here!


 Project Award – Jordan Valley Cancer Center selected as 2017 Generative Space Award Winner

The Jordan Valley Cancer Center was selected as this year’s winner of the Generative Space Award, conferred by the CARITAS Project. This international recognition is given to projects that show continuous improvement in not only the physical environment but the organizational culture as well.

We had a great time at the Healthcare Facilities Symposium and Expo in Austin, Texas and enjoyed the opportunity to share a presentation about this wonderful place with our colleagues from around the world – click here to see more!
