SLCC campus in Herriman tops out

Herriman — Nearly 100 people gathered for a topping-out ceremony at the construction site of the new Salt Lake Community College Campus in Herriman. 

Juniper, the campus’s main building, is the first of what is proposed to be 13 buildings to be constructed on the new campus and marks the kick-off of the multi-year $46.2 million project. 

“Education helps people build prosperity and a bright future, and the Herriman Campus will play a key role in making college more accessible to those who call this area home,” says SLCC President Deneece G. Huftalin. “This campus will help meet the demand for education and employment due to the tremendous growth in southwest Salt Lake Valley.”

Utah Division of Facilities Construction and Management (DFCM) and Salt Lake Community College awarded the project to Big-D Construction and AJC Architects in the summer of 2021. The project consists of a new instructional building, a central building, and a central utility plant building that will support all future buildings on campus. 

“We are honored to be a part of the Salt Lake Community College Herriman Campus project. Many of us work and live in the southwest end of the Salt Lake valley and the importance of this project hits close to home. We have a great team assembled and we are confident this project will positively impact the community for years to come,” says Clint Fackrell Big-D Project Director.

Juniper, primarily a classroom building with several core support spaces is a three-story 92,000 square-foot structure that features a bookstore, breakroom, conference/meeting rooms, multiple office rooms and classrooms, restrooms/locker rooms, student dining hall, and a student lounge on the first floor. The second floor consists of additional classrooms, computer labs, private and public study rooms, a meditation room, a testing center, and tutoring rooms. The third floor has even more classrooms, restrooms, and an exterior deck overlooking the campus. 

The Juniper Building has a goal of LEED Silver certification and is scheduled to be completed for the Fall 2023 semester.
