New Business Classroom/Office Building
The School of Business is actively planning for new facilities that will allow the School to meet its academic strategic plans. Built in two phases of approximately 123,000 gross square feet and 60,900 gross square feet, the completed complex will provide approximately 56,500 assignable square feet of modern, technology-enhanced classrooms, approximately 60,800 assignable square feet of new offices for faculty, administrators and staff and 39,400 assignable square feet of other essential facilities for the School of Business.
Phase I, funded by School of Business resources is currently scheduled to be ready for occupancy in September 2010. Following Phase I completion, Balmer Hall will be vacated and demolished and Phase II construction will begin. Funding for Phase II will be requested from the State of Washington as part of the UW’s “Restore the Core” legislative effort. Phase II is currently scheduled to be ready for occupancy in September, 2012.
