Project Description

 

Through the Building Justice Project, the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law has a new facility to help build a foundation of success for law students. At the core of the design is innovation and sustainability. The new facility is approximately 155,000 square feet. The six-story building accommodates a growing student population with new classrooms, administrative and office space, a law library, common and research areas, individual study space, dining, and even a student lounge and coffee shop. There is also a 450-seat conference center to help fulfill a need for a medium-sized venue on campus.

The University of Utah had a vision for the new College of Law building and through collaboration and teamwork, Big-D Construction ensured that the vision became a reality.

The vision included the following:
• An iconic design to complement the neighboring Rice Eccles Stadium
• Universal access to allow seamless physical and cognitive accommodations
• An efficient design to promote sustainability, save energy, and conserve water

In fact, environmental sustainability was a priority for the project. The S.J. Quinney College of Law Building is LEED Platinum Certified through the U.S. Green Building Council.
