Hennebery Eddy Architects of Portland, Oregon and Comma-Q Architecture of Bozeman, Montana were selected to design a new 46,000 square foot academic building for the College of Business at Montana State University. MSU received a $25 million gift from alumnus Jake Jabs to advance the College of Business and make it one of the best in the nation. Of the gift, $7 million will be used for programs and scholarships and $18 million will be used for the building. The goal for this new academic building is to provide 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 to increase collaboration between the College of Business and other academic disciplines at MSU. Hennebery Eddy is the design architect for this project in collaboration with executive architect, Comma-Q. Hennebery Eddy principal Timothy Eddy and project manager Jon McGrew are currently working on the programming and schematic design phase efforts for the building. The project team also assisted MSU with evaluating potential sites for their new facility. The new College of Business academic building is scheduled to open in 2015 and will be designed to achieve, at a minimum, a LEED Silver certification from the US Green Building Council.
