HERRIMAN, UTAH — A topping-out ceremony was held recently at the construction site of the new Salt Lake Community College Campus in Herriman, Utah.
The main building on the campus, Juniper, is the first of what is proposed to be 13 buildings to be constructed on the new campus and marks the kick-off of the multi-year $46.2 million project. The Juniper building, with a goal of LEED Silver certification, is scheduled to be completed for the fall 2023 semester.
Utah Division of Facilities Construction and Management and Salt Lake Community College awarded the project to Big-D Construction and AJC Architects in the summer of 2021. The project consists of a new instructional building, a central building and a central utility plant building that will support all future buildings on campus, indicates a release.
Juniper is a three-storey, 92,000-square-foot building primarily consisting of classrooms with several core support spaces. It features a bookstore, breakroom, conference/meeting rooms, multiple office rooms and classrooms, restrooms/locker rooms, a student dining hall and a student lounge on the first floor.
The second floor consists of additional classrooms, computer labs, private and public study rooms, a meditation room, a testing center, and tutoring rooms. The third floor has more classrooms, restrooms and an exterior deck overlooking the campus.
