Opened in 1993, The Gallivan Plaza is a premier open concert and multi-use public space in downtown Salt Lake City, uniquely located between two towers and on top of a three-level underground parking structure. Reaveley was involved in both the facility opening and its renovation which doubled the concert viewing area and boasts a new building that can be rented for private events. The two-story structure offers new public restrooms and a south-facing terrace. The project also included construction of a larger ice skating rink and a sweeping shade structure.
The city’s largest library for nearly 40 years, this science and technology center is considered a historically significant example of mid-century modern architectural design. Built in 1964 the remodel of the three-story structure included asbestos abatement and a complete seismic retrofit.
The original Salt Palace, completed in 1969, became the beloved home of several professional sports teams. However, in 1994 the arena was demolished to make way for a 616,000 sf convention center built in its place.
The structure for the Exposition Center is divided into two primary components separated by an expansion joint. The exhibit hall space measures approximately 270 feet wide by 900 feet long with structural columns spaced transversely at 60, 150, and 60 feet.
Designed for maximum versatility, the Dixie Center hosts trade shows, conferences, concerts, and other special events. This two-story convention center is recognized for its extensive, imaginative, and aesthetic uses of concrete. Architectural features include a rotunda, atrium-style Garden Room and a spacious indoor lobby.
The biosphere is one of five large venues at Thanksgiving Point. It covers more than 33,000 square feet, including renovated space in the former Emporium building and a 10,0000 sf greenhouse with waterfalls that will be home to thousands of butterflies and flowering plants.
