Ultradent’s New Crown Jewel
Conference center adds top-floor view to trainings
SOUTH JORDAN, Utah – Ultradent is a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of dental products, and has been revolutionizing the dental industry since 1978. Likewise, Ultradent expects its construction partner to be nothing less than revolutionary.
With Ultradent’s rapid growth, Layton has worked on the company’s campus several times in recent years, renovating and expanding manufacturing and distribution space. The most recent project added a fourth floor, 300-seat conference and training center atop an existing office building built in the 1990s.
Updated building codes necessitated some challenging structural upgrades.
“It was a very challenging project to build this conference center on the roof right above employees that were operating ‘busi-ness as usual,’” says Dr. Dan Fischer, founder and CEO. “Cutting holes in the structure, removing the existing roofing membrane, keeping the building water-tight, attaching the new steel structure and placing concrete in one of Utah’s harshest winters in recent memory — these were the problems that Layton and its subcontractors handled very well.”
