Odd Fellows Building

Moving the Odd Fellows building in Salt Lake City, Utah, required countless dollies and beams to support the 5 million-pound historic structure after it had been jacked and cribbed. The move earned Emmert International several industry awards.

Structure Relocation


Structure Relocation Projects

We began as a structural move specialist and continue to thrive as an innovative and conscientious pioneer of structure relocation. Some of our most prestigious awards were earned by performing feats like the relocation of the Fairmount Hotel, which weighs over 3 million pounds.

We recycle all of the typical products normally recycled by industry leading companies. However, Emmert has taken its recycling methods to a new dimension by not only saving precious landfill space, but also by recycling items not typically seen as recyclable.

What others see as an old, unwanted building, we see as an opportunity. By transplanting these buildings to new locations, and updating or remodeling them, we are able to help provide quality housing to literally hundreds of thousands of families and individuals.

Since beginning this initiative, Emmert has saved over half of a billion dollars in building materials, demolition, labor and landfill costs. This initiative has also led to untold hundreds of renovation contractors finding employment by performing the salvage and remodeling work.

This recycling program enables individuals and families to purchase these homes, move them to their lot, and go about the renovation work themselves, often with technical, financial or subcontract assistance from Emmert. This process has helped hundreds of families realize their dream of owing their own home.
