The $57 million renovation and seismic retrofit of the 5-story Marriott Library at the University of Utah provides students with an array of new electronic and traditional information resources and equipment, while providing optimum safety and state-of-the-art aesthetics.
Utelite Corporation worked with project engineers and architects to develop and provide a lightweight planting media for library’s rooftop garden plaza. The lightweight planting media was needed to help address the challenges of landscaping over a structure. The lightweight media was engineered to meet the needs of the selected plants as well as reduce the weight load on top of the parking structure.
