TEMPE, Ariz. -- Students at Arizona State University’s W.P. Carey School of Business will begin attending classes in a new, state-of-the-art facility in just a few more months.
ASU broke ground on McCord Hall in October 2011, and will open the building to students this coming summer.
Earlier this week, ASU released a time lapse video chronicling McCord Hall’s construction.
The 129,000 square-foot facility will feature classroom space, study rooms, a new career center, outdoor assembly areas and world-class conference facilities.
McCord Hall, which will complement the other two buildings at the W.P. Carey School, will also benefit the environment by using less water and energy than similar buildings, and returning power to the campus grid through a solar array on the roof.
ASU said McCord Hall is also expected to create 480 local construction and engineering jobs, as well as a total of 1,150 jobs through direct and indirect spending.
McCord Hall is named after philanthropist Sharon Dupont McCord and her late husband, Bob McCord.
