Tabernacle Seismic Upgrade and Renovation for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Recently, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints undertook a renovation of the building to upgrade the structure to current building code while maintaining the significant historical value of the building. Renovation of the building included the design and placement of steel trusses to reinforce the original timbers in the roof structure, the placement of new aluminum roof panels and reinforcement of supporting columns and braces.
