University of Akron - College of Business Administration Addition

The University of Akron recently hired CBLH Design for the design of the College of Business Administration addition.  This 15,000 square foot, two-story addition to the existing College facility included the following programmatic elements: a large combined classroom/multipurpose space, a flexible learning lab, offices for student advising, an endowed director’s suite and a learning commons that will allow students to have access to study and lounge space not found in the current facility. 

Our firm had assisted the University in its consideration of two possible site locations.  The final option creates a new zero lot line “urban front door” to the Northwest of the current main entry along Broadway Street.
