Frank Moss Federal Courthouse – Salt Lake City, Utah
The new Frank E. Moss Federal Courthouse is a 10 story building that is just over 410,000 square feet. Looking nothing like the stately Frank E. Moss U.S. Courthouse it is replacing, the new building is designed to maximize security and natural lighting.
This new courthouse addresses many of the concerns of the old building including the need to separate prisoners from the general public which is completely unacceptable by today’s courtroom design standards.
Utah Yamas Controls is installing StruxureWare, Schneider Electrics flagship Intelligent Building Management System on this project which is designed to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The Gold Certification is based on evaluation of energy efficiency and the building’s environmental sustainability.
With windows throughout the design and a 10 story atrium the designers took advantage of daylight harvesting to add additional savings to the overall energy usage of the building. The building’s electrical system is 34 percent more efficient than a comparable building.

USU Agriculture Building – Logan, Utah
The USU Agriculture Building was constructed using Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification guidelines. Solar panels were placed on the south face of the building to provide shade from the southern sun as well as produce energy. The solar panels were added to the plans after a grant from the state of Utah was awarded to support innovation for building integrated solar systems.
The 125,000-square-foot building features two main sections. The first section is three stories of high-tech laboratories and research space which is used by students and faculty. It also houses a new university-operated computer lab, lecture and classroom space and public areas. The second section is a four-story structure that faces south which will house the faculty and administrative offices. The new building replaces the existing Agricultural Science Building which was finished in 1955.
The interior of the building houses new university-operated computer labs, classroom space, including lecture rooms and a 116-seat auditorium, student meeting rooms along with a four-story high atrium. Utilizing StruxureWare, Utah Yamas Controls installed a state of the art BMS system controlling the host of new laboratories with high speed Phoenix Control Hoods & Valves.
Smart classrooms have been equipped with the latest technology and research laboratories have been designed to enhance access and collaboration among researchers.
St. Luke’s Medical Center – Twin Falls, Idaho
The new St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center opened to the public in 2011, but its history dates back to 1918, when they opened their doors to serve the needs of early settlers. Like then, St. Luke’s Regional Medical Center still serve the needs of people from eight southern Idaho counties and parts of northern Nevada.
St. Luke’s RMC is built for the 21st century by incorporating features designed to promote maximum patient comfort and care. Featuring 186 private rooms, the 700,000 sqf hospital includes a large emergency room and a cancer treatment clinic.
The approximately $ 200 million-plus medical center replaces the former Magic Valley Regional Medical Center in Twin Falls, Idaho. In addition to the 500,000 square foot main hospital, the facility includes a medical office tower and a new cancer center operated by the Mountain States Tumor Institute. As a regional cancer center, the building will function as a resource for several of the outlying St. Luke’s facilities.
As a nonprofit mission St. Luke’s will reinvest every net dollar into the technology, staffing, programs, and services that will most benefit the people they serve.
