Layton constructed a new 50,000 SF facility for Quartzdyne, a manufacturer of pressure and temperature transducers for deep oil well exploration and drilling. Quartzdyne had outgrown its current facility in Taylorsville, Utah, and moved all production and 80 employees to the new location, which is 33 percent larger than the old building. The new facility sits on six acres and has the potential to expand to more than 70,000 SF, and utilized tilt-up construction for an efficient construction method.
The Quartzdyne building is the first phase of 201 Commerce Center, a new business park being developed by the Argent Group. The second phase of the development will include the construction of three additional buildings.
The project received a LEED Silver certification from the United States Green Building Council, thanks in large part to a system of high-efficiency energy consumption.
