The Frederick Albert Sutton Building (FASB), dedicated 17 April, 2009, is the new home of the Department of Geology and Geophysics at the University of Utah. This building was made possible through generous philanthropic support of many individuals and organizations.
FASB is a four-story, 91,000 square foot facility that features state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories, and offices that foster collaboration and innovative research. FASB is distinctive: its architectural design and educational display areas provide a magnificent showcase for discoveries in the fields of geology and geophysics and highlight the many contributions of University of Utah faculty and alumni to these fields.
Reverend Marta Sutton Weeks provided the lead gift for the project in honor of her father, Frederick Albert Sutton.
