The new Rutgers Business School building by the numbers

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Construction will continue on Rutgers Business School’s newest building through the spring and summer months. In the coming weeks, workers are scheduled to begin installing the first sections of a glass curtain wall exterior, adding to the building's striking appearance.

The structure, which enhances and expands Rutgers Business School’s New Brunswick presence, is a major element in the university’s plan to create a cluster of professional schools and disciplines on the Livingston Campus. When the building opens in the fall, 240 business classes are expected to be held inside, a combination of 170 undergraduate and 70 graduate courses.A bird's eye view of the new business school construction at the Livingston Campus.

2,026 = number of students that can be accommodated by seating in classrooms and lecture halls, collectively.


$85 million: total project cost  


100 = workers on the site


3 cranes were needed to install each one of the 10 columns that stand in a crisscrossed pattern under the “bridge’’ portion of the building


21: number of break-out rooms for students and faculty


One multi-purpose room is furnished with flexible collaborative seating.
