Snead Hall – School of Business
Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia
Looking to foster collaboration between the School of Engineering and School of Business programs, Virginia Commonwealth University wanted to create a unified complex for both programs. The goal of this approach was to allow engineering students to share innovative research advancements with business-minded entrepreneurs. The result is a 243,717-gross-square-foot academic building to house both programs. A four-story facility, Snead Hall includes a capital markets center and trading room, career services center, commons and café, auditorium, collaborative learning rooms, tiered case study classrooms, breakout rooms, and the university’s Center for Corporate Education.
