The four-story addition to the east side of the Gerdin Business Building, home to the Ivy College of Business, is about 75% complete and cruising toward a fall target completion. Always a sign of progress, the tower crane left the site the first week in May. On the outside, brickwork is complete and limestone panel installation has begun. On the inside, a significant amount of wall framing and drywall and tile work is underway, and plumbing, electrical and climate control systems are being installed on all levels.
The $28 million project adds five classrooms, student-focused team rooms and faculty and graduate student offices for the college. It also will include a behavioral sales suite and a two-level commons (pictured inside the glass doors, below) for curricular, co-curricular and special events.
