Time-lapse video of McCord Hall at Arizona State University’s W. P. Carey School of Business
McCord Hall, the new addition to the W. P. Carey School, is named for Sharon Dupont McCord and the late Bob McCord.
The impressive facility at Arizona State University features modern architecture, technologically advanced tiered and flat classrooms, a multipurpose event space, a new graduate-level career center, team rooms, study areas, outdoor assembly areas, a lounge for honors undergrads, and a health-conscious café. McCord Hall is also environmentally friendly, with less water and energy use than similar buildings and a solar array that returns power to the campus grid. The project totaled million, and the return on investment is expected to be great.
“We estimate the project has already had an economic impact on the gross state product of million and the creation of 880 jobs,” says Professor Dennis Hoffman, director of the L. William Seidman Research Institute at the W. P. Carey School of Business. “Of course, the value of the construction does not include the added value that will accrue from the human capital produced in McCord Hall’s learning environment, allowing students to acquire knowledge and skills to compete in today’s economy.”
