Summarize the project's program, features and achievements.
The Associated General Contractors of Utah (AGC) Training Facility is an extension of the Construction Pathways Program that will be used by a wide range of groups including Department of Labor apprenticeship programs, safety training, continuing education, and pre-contractor licensing classes. Members of the AGC also can use the space for their company training and meetings. The new training facility was a partial donation of labor, materials, and in-kind donations in support of what the association does. The new facility displays the advantages of tilt-up for the construction industry as a whole with its better building envelop, higher energy performance, faster production, superior craftsmanship with integrally colored concrete with no patching or painting, and making it extremely low maintenance for the future. The building features large warehouse shop areas to allow for assembly and building system training, forklift training, and concrete pouring training. The building also includes an open floor plan with high-bay space to construct scaffolding for learning to work safely at heights, a suite of classrooms, and an auditorium. The design of the building was intended to match the existing AGC headquarters which is adjacent to the new facility. The design includes many elements of construction such as large exposed insulated sandwich panels, accents in the front of the building, cast-in-place walls, masonry, and steel construction. Formliners were used to mimic corrugated metal and Core10 Steel. Each formliner had to be cut three times before being affixed to the form. It was truly a work of art to construct the AGC Training Facility.
