BYU Alumni and Visitors Center
About BYU Alumni and Visitors Center
Originally planned for a 15-18 month construction duration, it was decided by BYU administrators, Okland/Span Construction, donors, and alumni to condense the schedule to 12 months. There were various obstacles to the 12-month fast-track construction schedule, including a two-month delay caused by harsh weather conditions. Okland/Span Construction Joint Venture was able to meet the deadline in the remaining 10 months, and the new facility was dedicated on time.
The new facility is considered by BYU to be the gateway of the University as it greets visitors at the campus’ main entrance. Beyond the front doors, the main floor houses a small theater as well as exhibits on the history of Brigham Young University and the life of the building’s namesake, Gordon B. Hinckley, previous President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The upper floors of the building feature office and meeting space for Alumni programs. Throughout the structure are various meeting rooms, several of which feature moveable walls and fluctuating spaces that may be configured to accommodate more than 500 people.
