KUTV Channel 2
Salt Lake City, UT
As part of Salt Lake City’s efforts to revitalize the downtown area, KUTV Channel 2 relocated from its West Valley location to the Wells Fargo Center and contracted with Layton to perform the build-out.
Layton worked with the architect, building owner, and the CBS network to situate the large television news station in the first floor and basement of the tower. Through value engineering and cost estimating with the architect, Layton helped value engineer over $500,000 out of the original design, thus making the idea a reality.
Scope included the construction of a new mezzanine, sound rooms, technical rooms, news studio, and many other support spaces. Communication and coordination was imperative between Layton and CBS, Wasatch Properties (the tower owner), the architect, electricians, engineers and the many vendors and installers.
