The new addition accompanies additional renovation of select spaces in the original 1964 building and the 2002 addition named for Harold Alfond. The new and renovated facilities combine to create a single unified campus for the Isenberg School of Management.

The project pairs Boston architecture firm Goody Clancy and Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) of New York and Denmark to complete the renovation and addition and is designed to achieve LEED Silver certification.

A formal ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for April.
