New Home for Ivey Business School

Richard Ivey School of BusinessThe 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.”
