Utah State VA Cemetery Master Plan & Phase 1 Expansion

G Brown Design, in collaboration with Prior and Associates Architects, worked with local and national Veterans Administrations, and the Utah Division of Facilities Construction & Management to guide the cemetery master planning and Phase One expansion work for the existing 30 acre Utah State Veterans Cemetery. The project includes additional interment areas, columbarium niches, memorial walls and scattering garden, a realigned entry with new entry walls, grave survey monuments and burial section markers, redesigned maintenance facilities, irrigation renovations, and landscape improvements. G Brown Design worked with the United States and State of Utah Departments of Veterans Affairs for over 18 months to facilitate grant funding and gain approval from the State Cemetery Grant Service, a division of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. G Brown Design also performed site analysis, compiled the required Site Characteristics Report, coordinated with the Environmental Consultant for the Environmental Assessment, directed the master plan update, and developed construction documents for the site and cemetery design for the Phase 1 Expansion,.
