Sunroc worked with Westland Construction and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on the Orem Temple construction. Located on 16-acres west of Interstate 15 and south of University Parkway, this site required extensive earthwork from Sunroc prior to construction. With groundwater a mere 4′ to 6′ below original grade, and excavation work exceeding 25′ both temporary and sophisticated permanent dewatering systems were required. Work scope included approximately 75,000 cy. of earthwork, 17,000 lf. of pipe installation, along with 275,000 sf. of asphalt and all site concrete.
The temple is a three-story, 70,000 square foot structure, and the site is also home to a 20,000-square-foot meetinghouse. Work is scheduled to be completed in November 2022.
