On October 3, 2009, during the Saturday morning session of the 179th Semiannual General Conference, President Thomas S. Monson announced the construction of the Brigham City Utah Temple—Utah’s fourteenth temple. The groundbreaking was held July 10, 2010 and construction was completed in 2012.
The new Mormon temple in Brigham City, Utah is a dramatic, landmark structure. It is a signature structure for the town and members of the Mormon religion, and its design embodies a strong connection to the religion, the founders of the town and a historic tabernacle located nearby. To realize their architectural vision and build a resilient structure, the architects chose architectural precast. Precast allowed them to create a highly complex and personalized façade full of detailed accents and step backs and topped by 50-foot tall precast steeples atop towers at each end.
As a design-assist partner, Clark Pacific worked closely with the architect and engineer to develop 3D models and then produce architectural precast solutions responsive to their needs. Precast included a high-quality finish using white dolomite aggregates that sparkle like stone in natural light. Design elements included a peach blossom motif incorporated throughout the building as well as complicated corner, cornice and window detailing.
The end result was a beautiful and dramatic addition to the community – a signature landmark of which everyone is very proud.
Clark Pacific is honored to have been invited to be part of the team to help design and construct this important beautiful project for the LDS Church. From the pre-construction services through to construction, Clark Pacific is dedicated to producing temple-worthy quality precast for the Church and the 40,000 Church members who live in 13 stakes in northern Utah and southeast Idaho.
