The Taylorsville State Office Building Project

Construction Progress and Building Features

Planning and Design for the 3rd floor (the future home of DAS groups moving in Phase 1) is now complete. Many different work streams are underway to prepare the building for our Phase 1 moves. Demolition has made way for construction, and we are now installing the building’s systems and infrastructure. Teams are working diligently on deploying IT, planning physical moves, assessing transportation solutions, archiving materials and helping us adopt new ways of working.

TSOB is a large building with clear advantages for a multi-agency building including:

  • The building has capacity for 1,500+ employees
  • The first floor has a concentration of support spaces that will serve all occupants
  • Central security and check-in
  • A large gym
  • A well-appointed café with indoor and outdoor seating
  • A pond and walking paths with remarkable views of our mountains

Design Elements

Our design team has been working closely with Steering Committees from each agency to plan and customize their space. This has been an exciting opportunity to envision and plan our new environments. Your input in interviews, surveys and workshops has been vital to this process. Based on what you’ve collectively expressed, our space is being designed to distinguish agencies while remaining fluid, ensure the ability to do focused work, include a wide-range of conference room sizes, provide spaces for private conversations, bring natural light to all employees, allow us to interact socially, and create a fun environment and a vibrant employee experience.

The pictures below contain some of the design elements that are steering the project. These are examples of the overall look and feel of what our future spaces may look like. As you can tell, our future spaces will look and feel different than what we currently have, and will require getting used to. Much more detail about these spaces is coming soon as we zero in on furniture options and overall look and feel. Stay tuned for information-sharing sessions, trainings and orientations in the months ahead to familiarize us with the new environments.

Project Schedule

We’re excited to let you know that the majority of groups within DAS have been selected for Phase 1 moves, which will take place in late January 2020. More specifically the first move will include: Administrative Rules, Career Services Review Office, DAS-EDO, DFCM, Finance, Fleet, Purchasing, and Risk Management. Attorney General and Human Resources staff who reside with these groups will also move in Phase 1.

The inclusion of these groups in Phase 1 was ultimately based on their agency-wide readiness to transition to the new location. Each agency’s square footage requirements, adjacency needs and constraints, remote work adoption and other specific factors were considerations in the move sequencing. We are continuing to work with DEM, UID, DHRM, PLPCO, UDAF and DTS, to best sequence their moves across Phases 2 and 3.

We will be providing detailed information about the move process to the agencies in Phase 1 to ensure full preparedness. We will communicate and support you in determining what to move, what to purge and how and when to pack. Please stay tuned for information on these items in the coming months.

Your Involvement

The SOB is a terrific opportunity to rethink and modernize our spaces. When finished, the SOB’s work environments will serve as a model for how we deliver space for locations all over the State. Your engagement and interest in the process has been nothing short of remarkable and we are grateful for your input in shaping our future spaces.

Our Work has Evolved

As the decades have come and gone, our work has changed but our work spaces have stayed the same

We're Much More Mobile

We are now more mobile, collaborative, and tech-dependent and we expect more from our work environments

Our Work Space Needs Have Changed
