Green Building Facts

The College of Business exercises its commitment to social responsibility in many ways. The Business Instructional Facility is an important example of that commitment. It serves to capture the aspirations for a sustainable future by putting into essential practice the best technology and cultural performances possible.

Building the Business Instructional Facility required the collective efforts of many forward-thinking faculty, students, administrators, engineers, architects, and construction crews. Their task was to achieve a new kind of building on campus that considered long-term financial and social costs and opportunities while serving the campus and greater community now and into the foreseeable future. The Business Instructional Facility sets the standard for all new buildings on the ILLINOIS campus.
