L. S. Skaggs Jr. Pharmacy Institute

About This Project:

L.S. Skaggs Pharmacy Research Building

The Skaggs Pharmacy Institute provides the opportunity to significantly enhance the image and identity of the Health Sciences precinct; strengthen the existing campus pedestrian, vehicular and service networks; and provide exciting internal and external spaces that revitalize human experience and encourage wider medical and scientific interaction.  

A building was constructed immediately south of Skaggs Hall. The new structure is connected to Skaggs Hall by an atrium that houses elevators, connections between the two buildings at each level and a variety of gathering areas.  About 75-80% of the space is devoted to research labs, support spaces, and office/conference room clusters. The rest of the space is associated with non-laboratory research and the Utah Poison Control Center.

Design Features:

  • LEED Gold Certification
  • Five floors
  • Underground parking
  • Research labs
  • Support space
  • Office/conference rooms
