As a nationally and internationally ranked institution, The David Eccles School of Business needed a new building that expressed optimism, confidence, and social engagement and responsibility. Our response dramatically expresses these strong values by designing spaces that promote interaction. The spaces are filled with natural light and sweeping views, connecting students in an environment of clean professionalism and dynamic inspiration. State-of-the-art teaching, learning, and research resources are designed to accommodate growth and allow for MBA and undergraduate program flexibility. In addition to classroom and break-out collaborative spaces, the school also includes a 250 seat auditorium, an event space and entrepreneurial centers. Less formal space for casual learning and collaboration are woven throughout, and enriched by views and access to beautiful outdoor amenities, including a garden roof terrace. Construction of the building required two phases, with MHTN supporting each transition along the way.
