UNM Smith Plaza

Smith Plaza is the center and heart of the University of New Mexico’s (UNM) main campus. An estimated 10,000 students travel through this site every day. This project consisted of massive existing hardscape removal during the peak of student traffic in the Spring of 2018.┬áJaynes completed renovations to UNM Smith Plaza in August 2018. The focus of this project was to create an outdoor “great room” to help promote the University of New Mexico as a Destination University. The new plaza encourages student engagement and activity, providing flexibility to allow small and large group gatherings.
