The Taylorsville State Office Building Project

The Taylorsville State Office Building marks an important transition in how the State of Utah delivers space. Renovation of the building is the first significant step in modernizing the State's space to achieve greater efficiency, productivity, comfort and a better overall employee experience, while remaining fiscally responsible. Work environments at the Taylorsville State Office Building apply the State of Utah's new space standards across modern workplace designs that have been developed based on substantial research and input from employees and leaders.

As a result, the new environments in the Taylorsville State Office Building are matched to how we work and also build on broader changes that have occurred over the past several decades including increased mobility, teleworking, collaboration, and digitization. The new work environments are built with change in mind and are generally flexible enough to accommodate further shifts to mobility, teleworking, and collaboration.

Based on early reports from groups having moved into the building in January 2020, the space is performing well with significant majorities of users reporting high satisfaction and a preference for the new work environments.

Current Status

Phase 1 Complete

In January 2020, construction was completed on the 3rd floor of the building. In this same month, nearly all employees in the department of Administrative Services moved into the building and began the process of adapting to new work environments. Early assessments show that the space is performing.

Phase 2 is Underway

The project is now deep into Phase 2. Design is nearly completed for the departments moving in Phase 2 and construction will be fully underway through the summer and fall. The Department of Insurance, Department of Human Resource Management, Division of Emergency Management, Department of Technology Services, and the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food are slated to move into the building as part of Phase 2 in December 2020 and Q1 2021.
