Brigham City Library Seismic Upgrades Submitted by Ascent Construction Inc.
This project consisted of the historic renovation and seismic upgrade of a 20,000-sq-ft, 100-year-old public library building in Brigham City, Utah.

It included a complete seismic retrofit—shear walls, drag struts, framing braces and epoxy coring of the outside walls to make them stronger and more rigid.

Included in the renovation was the application of Craftsman-style construction methods and materials to preserve the historic look and feel of the interior and exterior of the library. The project included a complete interior remodel, roof replacement and reinforcement of the 30-ft chimney.
