David O. McKay Education Building Renovation
The David O. McKay Education Building is currently undergoing renovation. Watch the progress live.
While the education building is under construction, the Reed K. Swenson building, which currently houses our Exercise & Nutrition Sciences and Health, Physical Education, and Recreation departments, will host more classes, including all evening face-to-face Graduate Studies in Education courses. Alongside this, faculty and staff offices will be distributed throughout the Swenson building and the modular buildings located north of the IPE building.
The Melba S. Lehner Children's School will have its new home at the Early Learning Center on 3329 Harrison Blvd. This temporary relocation aims to provide a more conducive environment for children's education and development.
As for the new building, one of the standout features is its incorporation of biophilic design. This architectural approach, which integrates nature into the design, will create a calming and creative atmosphere. The increased natural light will further enhance the overall learning environment of our classrooms.
Additionally, the building will house a maker space called the Fabrication Lab. This lab will equip students and faculty with the necessary tools and resources to create innovative materials for their lessons and classes, fostering a culture of creativity, exploration and innovation.
As a crucial consideration for the safety of the children and families, the building design will also include designated secure access points for the Melba S. Lehner Children's School.
The project is expected to be completed by December 2024.
