The new home for the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law conveys sustainability with two visible Lumos LSX solar arrays, both of which were installed by Intermountain Wind & Solar.
On top of the building stands a 180-foot wide LSX solar canopy. At street level, students are sheltered from the sun or weather by a custom LSX bus stop. The LSX module system is composed of the LSX frameless solar module and LSX rail. The system's appeal is that it is faster and easier to install than conventional modules, while adding value with its aesthetics.
