Downtown Phoenix Takeover

The new ASU law school at its downtown Phoenix campus now has an official name. The $129 million, 280,000-square-foot campus will be named the Beus Center for Law and Society after prominent Valley attorney Leo Beus and his wife, Annette.

Arizona State University continues its takeover of downtown Phoenix with their newest installment, the Beus Center for Law and Society. This project allowed Kovach to create a completely new system, our Unitized Stone System. Sourcing stone from nearby Chino Valley, we integrated sandstone slabs into our metal and glass panel systems to create a system that is easier and cheaper to manufacture and install.

What made the Beus Center special was the installation of the stone façade.  Instead of using traditional stone construction methods, we incorporated stone panels into our unitized curtainwall system.  Unitizing the stone system significantly reduced installation time, labor costs, and jobsite congestion, while increasing overall job safety.
