Publicity: Huntsman Cancer Institute in UC&D Magazine

Along the east bench of Salt Lake City, stands a world class research and treatment center; The Huntsman Cancer Institute. All four phases of the nearly 900,000 square foot campus were designed by Architectural Nexus. A recent article in Utah Construction and Design Magazine provides a fascinating history and details of the expansive project.

In 1993 Jon Huntsman Sr. and his wife visited major cancer centers across the world with the intent of adopting the best qualities of each. Designers worked in step with research scientists to ensure open and flexible laboratory spaces that are able to quickly adapt to future research initiatives. “If you look at this new phase, it’s all about open space that brings researchers together, it gives them a place to collaborate” said  Brad Busath, a Principal at Arch Nexus who specializes in laboratory design. “It’s an architectural masterpiece that really speaks to our values” said Mary Beckerle, CEO of HCI since 2006.

Huntsman offered high praise for the design and construction teams he’s worked with on each of the four phases, and said the local talent in Utah’s A/E/C industry is second to none. “Utah is a very unusual state… We have some of the finest architects, builders and contractors of anywhere in the world. It’s been a great blessing and a privilege for our family to have these associations.”
