This project is a new 112, 800 square foot state-of-the-art academic building for the Franklin P. Perdue School of Business at Salisbury University.
A new state-of-the-art facility for the Perdue School of Business, the facility was constructed on the current site of Caruthers Hall. The multi-wing, three story building contains 20 business school classrooms, one computer and four business labs, a 200-seat auditorium which can double as a large classroom, team study rooms, student lounges, break-out rooms, faculty and administrative offices, a business outreach suite, and the Perdue Museum.
The facility will allow students, faculty, and the community to engage in both traditional and experiential learning settings. The building is designed to a silver Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, and is a model of sustainability. Some of the environmental highlights include use of at least 20 percent recycled materials, state-of-the- art energy systems projected to use 24 percent less heating and cooling than similar classroom buildings, a minimum of 75 percent construction waste being recycled, and many bicycle racks to encourage students, faculty, and staff to consider alternate modes of transportation.
