Turner Construction has started work on a $120m building that will be home to the Carl H. Lindner College of Business at the University of Cincinnati.
The four-storey building, covering an area of 225,000 sq ft, will feature an expansive floor plan with more than 160 faculty office spaces, a 150-seat, two-story lecture hall, a 250-seat auditorium, research labs, exam and tutoring areas, huddle and breakout rooms and plenty of open workspaces.
The project has secured over $22m in fundraising, including an $11m gift from the Lindner family and American Financial Group.
Henning Larsen Architects and with Cincinnati-based KZF Design will also work on the project, which is scheduled to open in fall 2019.
Lindner College of Business dean David Szymansk said: “The new world-class facility will redefine the student experience for years to come, while providing the necessary space for faculty to engage in cutting-edge research and create innovative teaching pedagogies.”
