University of Utah Health Sciences Master Plan Update
The primary goal of the Health Sciences Campus Master Plan was articulating the vision of future growth on campus. This included replacement and renovation of the existing School of Medicine, the placement of the MED building and Knowledge Center, and a strengthened campus connection with an open plaza and pedestrian pathways. The plan proposes a new circular road that provides a mass transit pathway through the campus center that increases access and links to the broader campus transportation infrastructure.

STRENGTHEN THREE IDENTITIES
Integrate a long-term vision and strengthen the identity of three primary precincts of this health sciences campus. The master plan team built upon the existing organization of academic corridor, research corridor, and medical center to create new student-centric heart of campus.

Campus sustainability goals were supported by several master plan elements, including the replacement of older, carbon-intensive building with those that are highly efficient, the promotion of mass transit and bicycle use, and east-west solar orientations.
