New Home for Ivey Business School
The University of Western Ontario is poised to break ground this summer on a $100 million building to house the Richard Ivey School of Business; the project is the largest in the university’s history, according to media reports.
Construction of the 235,000-square-foot glass and cut-stone structure (pictured), designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects of Toronto, will begin in August on a site where soccer fields are currently located. It is to be completed by March 2011. The so-far unnamed new building has been designed using the latest green technology, and will be the second LEED-certified building on campus.
“Ivey has grown tremendously in recent years, and more growth is predicted in the coming years,” Ivey Dean Carol Stephenson is quoted as saying, adding that “A world-class business school needs a world-class facility.”
