Alumni Plaza

The Alumni Plaza at the University of Arizona is nothing less than a skillful combination of the old and the new. One of the focal points of the project, four Carnelian® granite fountains, not only incorporates the timelessness of the rock itself ... but speaks to a vision of the school dating back to its founding in the 1880s. Additionally, granite pavers in the same Carnelian® granite allow donors to the project to be recognized and, as part of a memorial walkway, not only celebrate significant aspects of the school’s past, but also leave space for future generations to write their own history.
 
  • Polished Carnelian® was the color of choice for the four 32 feet granite fountains

  • The project required complete utilization of  design and fabrication capabilities to create the fountains

  • Each one is made up of eight segments, 4' X 6' X 2,' and cantilevered at different angles from 38° to 68°. Each segment weighs approximately 8,000 lbs.

  • A memorial walkway going through the center of the plaza features twenty-one 2’ X 6’ Carnelian® pavers engraved with facts of historical significance for the University.
