The first phase of the renovation of the historic St. George Utah Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is underway in southern Utah. Twentieth-century additions on the north and west sides of the building have been removed.

The temple was closed for renovation in November 2019 to undergo extensive structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and finish work.

Jason Cobb, on-site foreman for Grant Mackay Demolition Company, has been doing this type of work for 14 years, but this job is different. As a member of the Church, he said working on the temple allows him to be a part of history.

“It feels amazing to me to have the opportunity to be able to work on temples,” said Cobb, “to be able to feel the love that the Lord has for His house and for each one of us.”
