Focus on Heart

We are excited to announce that our design team behind Meadow Peak at Summit Vista was awarded the BEST Give at the IIDA Intermountain Chapter Best Award ceremony held in April.

Congratulations to our exceptional team for this well-deserved recognition! Their commitment and dedication to creating award-winning designs are truly commendable and a great reflection on the amount of heart they put into each project.

Firm News

We are delighted to share the success of our recent event, the 4th Annual TSA Architects Putt Putt Fundraiser, held in May. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the event sponsors, hole sponsors, and raffle/silent auction sponsors whose support made this event possible.

Thanks to your incredible generosity, we raised an impressive $11,000 for Utah Partners for Health, our chosen benefactor for this year’s event. The event showcased an array of creatively designed holes, adding excitement and fun to the day. We are immensely grateful to everyone who attended and supported this cause. Your presence and contributions made a significant difference in our mission to give back to the community. Thank you for joining us and being part of this wonderful event.



Tracy and Sara recently attended the Environments for Aging conference in North Carolina. They had a fantastic time immersing themselves in the latest trends and innovations within the industry. The conference provided valuable insights into creating exceptional architecture and design for aging residents. Additionally, Tracy and Sara had the pleasure of visiting with our friends from Orcutt Winslow. We look forward to leveraging the knowledge gained from this enriching experience to further enhance our services.

Last month’s Healthcare Design Magazine featured the Davis Hospital and Medical Center – Women and Newborn Center (now Holy Cross Hospital—Davis). This feature highlights TSA Architects’ remodeling work and how it created a welcoming, state-of-the-art environment. We are incredibly proud of our team’s dedication and the impact they have made through this project.

Project Updates

TSA and Orcutt Winslow recently received the William E. Christoffersen Salt Lake City Veterans Home Replacement Facility design project. The facility will be relocated from the existing site at the VA medical campus to Taylorsville. The building will be catered to skilled nursing and memory care. We are happy to report that we just met our 35% schematic design submission deadline this month.

After the wettest, snowiest winter in recent memory, the steel frame is finally erected at the Emergency Department Expansion for the George E. Wahlen VA Medical Center. A big high-five to MSC Construction for fighting wind, snow, rain, and mud. Final completion is now scheduled for late summer, 2024.
