Spence Eccles Ski Team Building
This fabulous $2.26 million, 7,000 SF facility is the proud new home of the consistently competitive University of Utah ski team, the reigning 2017 NCAA Ski Champions. Made possible in part by the generosity of favorite U ski alum Spence Eccles, this two-story building combines form and function into one highly efficient space, with a building envelope combination of masonry, wood rain screen, and composite metal panels.
The screen is installed to allow airflow under the exterior veneer to reduce moisture and extend lifespan. The facility is conveniently located next to other campus training facilities, and offers easy access for the loading and unloading of ski equipment. Go Utes!
