SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Medical students at the University of Utah have a brand new building.

The school will hold a grand opening celebration for the Spencer F- and Cleone P- Eccles Health Sciences Education Building today.

The building replaces facilities that date back to the early 1950s.

The school says the new state-of-the-art building will provide a much needed upgrade for students of the medical school and Colleges of Nursing, Pharmacy and Health.

The more than 150-thousand-square-foot building is connected to the adjacent Eccles Health Sciences Library by a sky bridge.

The new building is designed to be environmentally friendly. It is thirty-five percent more efficient than most other buildings and about eleven percent of the building is constructed from recycled materials.
