EFA Conference Recap and HFSE Speaking Engagement
This year’s Environments for Aging Conference and Expo took place right here in Salt Lake City! To kick things off, we hosted a sold-out tour of Rocky Mountain Care’s The Lodge located in Heber City, Utah. The tour, led by Tracy, was attended by a group of architects, interior designers, and owner/operators from all over the country. We were grateful for the opportunity to share this awesome project and the many ways it creates an incredible environment for the aging community.
We also participated in the expo and enjoyed our time meeting new faces and sharing a little bit of what we do with so many from our booth.
Tracy was selected to present at this fall’s Healthcare Facilities Symposium and Expo taking place in Boston, MA! On September 19th, he take the stage with Jerry North of University of Utah Health to present, “Low-Trauma Construction at a Level 1 Trauma Center” in which they discuss this project that is surgical in nature in more ways than one.
University of Utah Hospital Infill Project (SLC, Utah)
We’ve recently finished over 200 micropiles, 7″ in diameter, that will support the footings. The forms and rebar have been set and the concrete footings have begun to be poured. Everyone is eager to get out of the mud that this wet weather has made, especially since it was nowhere else to go being at the bottom of a pit. Steel columns will soon be set to begin the erection of the first 3 floors.
TSA was recently selected by the University of Utah to design the first phase of a major renovation of the Biopolymers Research Building (BPRB) on the Health Sciences Campus. Consisting of expanded Research Labs and renovations to existing space, this project will enhance the mission of the Biochemistry Department and increase their capacity for ground-breaking research.
