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


Built before the railroad, made safe for earthquakes

The Tabernacle built before the coming of the railroad (1869), was constructed primarily of items and materials that could be obtained locally at the time. 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.
