(Photo courtesy The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) The cables photographed here are stretched with tension by a machine to provide additional stability to this retaining wall of four-inch-thick wood lagging. The wall will eventually span the entire perimeter of the temple grounds at a depth of 40 feet once excavation is complete. (Photo courtesy The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) The 1960s construction of the sealing addition, chapel and north entrance are dismantled as part of the seismic upgrade of the Salt Lake Temple. The sealing addition will be rebuilt once upgrades are completed.

(Photo courtesy The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) In this June 2020 photo, an auger is drilling a hole with the help of segment casings. The 15-foot segment casings help create a hole up to 60 feet deep. A steel piling will be dropped into the hole and filled with concrete. The steel piles are part of a retaining wall that will line the temple property and will also be installed around the temple in preparation for excavating a 40-feet-deep hole as part of the seismic upgrade. (Photo courtesy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) Piles of steel, copper, aluminum, stone and concrete are loaded and trucked to recycling plants from the Salt Lake Temple renovation project in this July 2020 photo. The sorting of the repurposed refuse is more time consuming but considered the right thing to do by the church and its contractors, the church said. (Photo courtesy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) The equipment photographed here calculates and lines up a machine that drills holes at different angles into the foundation of the Salt Lake Temple. The process, called coring and drilling, ultimately fills voids in the foundation with concrete grout in preparation for installing huge bearings called base isolators, part of the structure’s seismic upgrade against high magnitude earthquakes. (Photo courtesy The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) As part of strengthening the temple foundation in preparation for the seismic upgrade, these holes are drilled. A rod will be inserted, with fasteners that can tighten both sides of the foundation wall, to add stability.

The 98 base isolators, designed to limit motion of the 187-million-pound temple in a high magnitude earthquake, can withstand pressure nearly five times the weight of the temple. They will be installed when new footings are made underneath the existing temple foundation, which is now undergoing the strengthening and reinforcement phase.

A cable system helps lock the lagging in place to provide additional stability.
