BYU-Idaho Snow Performing Arts Building Addition/Remodel

Our team members led, programmed and designed this 35,000 sf, $10.5 million addition and remodel of the BYU-Idaho Snow Arts & Education Building from programming through construction completion. The Feasibility Study directed the University to initiate an addition to support their growing programs. In addition to the academic functions, the building is also used seven days a week for ecclesiastical & various other uses, serving as a multi-use building 24/7. The feasibility study and program identified a phased addition, with new construction affecting three different areas of the existing building while blending seamlessly with the established architectural language. The plan is organized around establishing a new entry courtyard for the students. The planning and design of this project included addressing the very complex underground utilities, the volcanic rock which the building and campus sits on and the fault which extended through a portion of the site. Due to grade change, significant care was taken in the routing of utilities and the high cost of blasting the volcanic rock to create new trenches or vaults. Additionally, we replaced and repaired a section of the steam and condensate vault that fed the existing Snow building.
