University of Utah - Lassonde Studios, Salt Lake City, UT

Project data

Location: Salt Lake City, United States

In addition to 400 student residences, the new 5-story, 148,000 ft² Lassonde Studios on the University of Utah campus features a 20,000 ft² “garage” where students can build prototypes, attend events, even launch companies. To form the building’s wideopen signature space, Pikus used 20,000 ft² of GRIDFLEX flexible slab formwork shored with 16’ PEP 20-500 high loading capacity slab props. TRIO Panel Formwork made quick work of the interior walls.
