The Beus Center for Law and Society, a $129 million, 280,000-square-foot facility completed in the fall of 2016, is named 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 more efficient 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.
