Building a new Business Building
Network:66



For those who have recently built a new Business School or are in the process, what pit falls do I need to watch for? We are in the early planning stages. We know what we need and will start working with the architects in the near future. What do I need to keep in mind? What are business schools doing differently in the new buildings? How is PhD student space being handled. Cubicles for collaboration or 3 students to an office? What type of technology is being used in classrooms, student study areas, etc... This is my first new building project. Any advise, suggestions or stories would be greatly appreciated. What are business schools doing differently in the new buildings?

Especially post-graduates who were already finishing the academic year in Technical University of Dortmund. The basics are as follows: make a space for work and study, use good equipment, make students work in pairs.
