Radford University breaks ground on a new $44 million, 110,00-square-foot home for the College of Business and Economics. The new signature building is located at the corner of Jefferson Street and Tyler Avenue and will redefine the gateway to campus.
The new building will include auditorium-style classrooms, conference rooms, and gathering spaces designed to stimulate collaboration and teamwork. It will also feature the latest in educational technology and financial research capabilities, including a 'trading room.'
In keeping with RU's commitment to sustainability, the entire complex is being constructed with the goal of achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold designation; however, a minimum designation of Silver is assured.
