Sutton Geology Building

G Brown Design worked with the project Architect from programming through construction periods services for the University of Utah Frederick Albert Sutton Geology Building. Services included assisting with site design, planting and irrigation design, and LEED analysis and documentation. G Brown Design worked with the architect and faculty to develop a landscape design that is sympathetic and evocative of the materials and issues studied in the Department of Geology and Geophysics. This included monumental rock displays, a dry creek bed, and stone mulches. The landscape design also facilitates ground water return, storm water runoff mitigation, high efficient irrigation, a green roof, and native and adaptive plant materials to create a conservation-minded landscape design that reflects the goals of the college to use water and other natural resources responsibly.
