Scott & Welch was an architectural partnership of Carl W. Scott (born 1887) and George W. Welch (born 1886) that was based in Salt Lake City, Utah.[1][2] They designed schools, libraries, and other buildings that were built by New Deal programs. A number of their works are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).[3]

Scott was a 1907 graduate, in mining, of the University of Utah. He is credited with the idea for the "Block U", made of concrete, which is a prominent icon on a hill above the university.[2][4]

Welch is a Colorado College graduate.[2]

The partnership began in 1914.[2]

Welch served in the Utah House of Representatives during 1919-1921.[2]
