Clemson University has received final approval from the State Fiscal Accountability Authority to build a new home for its College of Business.
Construction on the $87 million, 170,000-square-foot building across from Bowman Field is expected to begin this fall and will be ready for occupancy in early 2020.
The building will replace Sirrine Hall, which currently houses the College of Business. It will become a temporary “swing space” for offices and classrooms displaced by construction work.
“This state-of-the-art building is designed for 21st century learning and will provide much-needed space for a segment of our student population that is growing each year,” said Brett Dalton, Clemson’s executive vice president for finance and operations. “In addition, the project will be the centerpiece of a new footprint being created for future expansion of our campus.”
The project has been in the planning stage for more than two years. University officials said the future business school “will create a new academic precinct for future campus expansion.”
Construction will be funded through state appropriations, private gifts and institutional bonds.
“This new home for our outstanding College of Business is a key component of the university’s ongoing efforts to provide the type of academic facilities necessary to keep Clemson among the very best public universities in the country,” Clemson University President James P. Clements said. “We very much appreciate the support from our leaders in state government for this extremely important project and look forward to breaking ground on what will become one of the finest business education facilities in the country.”
Seattle-based LMN Architects is designing the building in collaboration with the Greenville office of Charleston-based LS3P, the architect of record.
