Frederick A. Sutton Building

"The Frederick Albert Sutton Building serves as a symbol for campus sustainability and didactic construction." - Continuum, Fall 2010

The Frederick Albert Sutton Building, dedicated April 17, 2009, was the first LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) on lower campus. This building has redefined the role of a campus building being a dynamic platform for learning.

This four-story, 91,000 square foot facility features state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories, and offices that foster collaboration and innovative research.  The building is distinctive:  its architectural design and educational display areas provide a magnificent showcase for discoveries in the fields of geology and geophysics and highlight the many contributions of University of Utah faculty and alumni to these fields.
