The Beus Center for Law and Society at Arizona State University’s Downtown Phoenix campus is a 268,000-sq.-ft. ground-up facility, featuring a variety of instructional spaces including lecture halls, classrooms, seminar rooms, a moot courtroom, law library, and undergraduate and graduate student spaces. The law building includes 18 classrooms, a large lecture hall and a state-of-the-art active learning courtroom classroom.
The project also includes space for clinics, law journal storage, a law firm, and ancillary support, as well as two levels of underground parking. DPR employed the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) and Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) delivery method for the law school project, which targeted LEED Gold certification.
In June 2015, there was a topping out ceremony for the $129 million facility.
