The University of Akron Business School Addition
Regency Construction Services, Inc. is serving as the Construction Manager at Risk for addition of approximately 15,000 square feet to the existing College of Business Administration facility located in downtown Akron. The program for this addition will include 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. Regency is currently working with the University and design team to study the most feasible and economical locations for the addition. The University is currently considering two possibilities. The first option is to create a new zero lot line “urban front door” adjacent to the current main entry along Broadway Street. The second option will be to place the addition on the South end of the building over a portion of the existing parking lot. Both options will include a second story to accommodate the program and keep the overall footprint more compact.
