MSU received a $25 million donation from alumnus Jake Jabs to transform its business school into one of the top programs in the country. Their first step was to create a new academic building that provides state-of-the-art teaching facilities, formal and informal meeting areas, interactive learning centers, smart flexibility, and social gathering spaces. The new building is organized around a central forum and targets LEED Gold Certification. The central forum space is designed to serve as a campus destination and gathering place — encouraging entrepreneurial interaction between students and faculty of all disciplines. The Design Team of Comma-Q Architecture, Morrison Maierle, and Hennebery Eddy Architects of Portland, OR, worked closely with the College of Business Administration Staff, MSU Facilities Staff, the State of Montana A/E Division Staff and the GC/CM Dick Anderson Construction, to create this significant facility.
