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 new law building will include 18 classrooms, a large lecture hall and a state-of-the-art active learning courtroom classroom.
The project will also accommodate space for clinics, law journal storage, a law firm, and ancillary support, as well as two levels of underground parking. The law school uses the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) and Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) delivery method. A minimum of LEED Gold certification is being targeted.
In June 2015, there was a topping out ceremony for the $129 million facility.
