U of U Stadium Plaza

The University of Utah contracted with G Brown Design to develop an existing landscape median located at the North East corner of Rice Eccles Stadium into a plaza space to accomodate the intense pedestrian traffic experienced on football game days. The project faced a number of challenges including a very aggressive schedule, difficult grading constraints, relocation of a number of utilities, and coordination with UDOT, UTA, Rocky Mountain Power, and Salt Lake City Utilities. G Brown Design developed the design in close collaboration with the University’s project development team. The design includes Pre-Cast raised planters, seat walls with granite caps, and trees and landscaping. The project had a very short schedule necessary to accomodate the first football game.
