The Jordan School District
West Jordan, Utah, United States | Market Sector: Automotive
In October of 2008, the Jordan School District in West Jordan, Utah, purchased a Sprung structure from the City of South Jordan's Public Works division. As the third true owner of the structure, the school district had the original facility dismantled and stored for the remainder of the winter.
Hauled out of storage in Spring of 2009, the structure was constructed and re-erected by the Jordan School District as a bus maintenance facility. The structure was upgraded with the purchase of a new Dupont Tedlar Desert Sand exterior membrane, complete with Brownstone Red wainscoting and a partial replacement insulation package for climate control.
Seeing the final resting spot for the Sprung structure, all three owners — including a Ski Resort, a Public Works Division, and now a School District — were thrilled that the structure was able to be relocated and altered to meet each of the clients' needs. Because the facility did not need to be demolished, or hauled away to a landfill, the structure was able to provide long-term value and low environmental impact.
With over a century of experience, Sprung structures deliver the most reliable and technically advanced permanent structures in the world. Because of its limited foundation requirements, the Jordan School District was able to erect their Sprung bus maintenance facility sooner and much cheaper than with conventional construction.
"All three owners were thrilled that the structure was able to be relocated and be altered to meet each client’s needs. The fact that the facility did not need to be demolished and hauled away to a landfill was also an advantage, as the clients included a Ski Resort, a Public Works division, and now a School District. This benefit is especially important with the ongoing and increasing pressure for all governments, agencies and local businesses to use environmentally responsible products that provide long-term value and not impact the environment negatively."
