New More Professional Look Will Even Be part of our Walls

By Ken Snyder

This is how the walls look now.
On the first three floors in the inside of the Huntsman School of Business there are plenty of blocks in the wall. You may not have noticed them but they look like the picture on the left. There is a cement block for every two horizontal tile facings you see. This square block pattern has been in place since the 1970s when the George S. Eccles Business Building came to be. 
We are experimenting on this wall.

If you look on the East side of the third floor you will see what looks like evidence of a confused contractor who can’t decide what he’s going to do with those blocks. (See picture on the right.) It is really just an area where we are experimenting with ways to cover up the old block design to create a more professional look. 

This is the new textured look.
The one we like best is in the picture to the left. Actually, it is a textured paint that will be slightly darker than the one in the photo. We’d like to transform the walls on the first three floors by the end of summer. No, we won’t be tearing down the walls, just giving them a brand-new look to accent the many other renovations underway. It will be interesting to see how many people notice the change.
