New College of Business Building

Architect's rough rendering of the new Business Building

Background

The design for a new multi-story College of Business building located in the University Gateway Precinct is underway. The building will house the Ozmen Center for Entrepreneurship, the Nevada Small Business Development Center, the Dean's office, and a Student Success Center, as well as, auditoriums classrooms, offices, specialty lab spaces, retail, and supporting functions.

The University Gateway Precinct, part of the University's Master Plan, will be a vibrant retail- and academic-oriented neighborhood center developed primarily by the University. It will extend campus life south of the current campus, in the area between Ninth Street and I-80.

"As the University's physical campus extends out into the community, it's a natural fit for the College of Business to occupy a building that will better allow University students and resources to connect with and welcome northern Nevada businesses," Greg Mosier, dean of the University's College of Business said. "The new building will further symbolize the regional commitment to bringing a diverse range of industries to northern Nevada and it also highlights the University's commitment to providing highly educated students who can fill positions within these industries."

The University is using a Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) construction delivery method for this project.
