Hennebery Eddy, in collaboration with executive architect Comma-Q, recently completed a new academic building at Montana State University for the Jake Jabs College of Business & Entrepreneurship. The academic building provides state-of-the-art teaching facilities, formal and informal meeting areas, interactive learning centers, and social gathering spaces for MSU business students, as well as increased collaboration between the College of Business and other academic disciplines at MSU. The new College of Business received LEED Gold certification and showcases leadership in sustainable design with features including: organization of the building and openings to minimize heat gain and heat loss; a ground source heat organization pump; a transpired solar collector; thermal mass; and connection to nearby district heating and cooling loops.
“We’re thrilled to be able to share the success of Jabs Hall with the community, not only does Jabs Hall perform great from an energy-usage perspective, but it is also a fantastic learning and collaboration space. It is both an innovative building and a building that fosters innovation in its occupants.”
Dean, College of Business, Montana State University
