Installation of structural steel for the expansion of the Gerdin Business Building is nearly complete, and crews have poured most of the concrete foundations and floors on the ground and first floors. While concrete work continues, installation of exterior wall panels will begin next week. 

This project, which will expand the home of the Ivy College of Business by roughly one-third, is approximately 25% complete, and construction activities are on schedule to wrap up about one year from now. The building addition will include instructional and student collaboration spaces, faculty and graduate student offices, and common spaces for course-related and special events.
