Enos A. Wall Mansion Renovation - Utah Policy Institute

About This Project:

Wall Mansion Interior Wall Mansion

The Utah Policy Institute is a redevelopment of the Enos Wall Mansion, converting the former LDS Business College into both the University of Utah’s Center for Public Policy Administration and the Bureau of Economic and Business Research. The new Utah Policy Institute is intended to act as the University of Utah’s embassy, to the state and surrounding community. 

The space at the East Wing of the building, once serving as library and offices for the LDS Business College, will be demolished. This newly opened area will serve for walkways and landscape to remain consistent with the historical layout of the site. The exterior will be restored and upgrades to the electrical, heating, and cooling systems will be integrated. The key to this project is that interior details will be preserved, while upgrading offices to meet the technological needs of the Utah Policy Institute. Renovations are intended to fuse modern technologies into the mansion's 1910 elegance.

Design Features:

  • Neo-Classical Revival Structure
  • Heating and Cooling Systems Upgrade
  • U-Shaped Formal Driveway restoration
  • Carriage House Renovation
  • West Wing Remodel for Classrooms
