The new Kaysville Municipal Building re-orients the main entry to better engage Main Street and expands the existing building significantly to meet the needs of a rapidly growing community. The existing building had served the community for over 30 years, but during that time the community had more than doubled and the original facility struggled to meet new demands. After understanding the current and future needs of the community, a thorough investigation of all options from complete replacement to simple renovation revealed that a combination of renovation and addition provides the best long-term value to the Kaysville.
The characteristic stone facade will remain, and in some cases become part of the interior experience of the future building, revealing the rich layers of history in Kaysville City. Existing signature spaces will remain and be enhanced, alongside new spaces which will provide improved services and new opportunities for community gathering inside and outside the building. Replacement of all engineering systems with newer, more energy efficient systems means that the new building – which will double in size – is projected to perform better than before and serve the City for the next 30 years and beyond.
