Southern Connecticut State University-Business School Instructional Facility
Construction for the next home of the School of Business at Southern Connecticut State University is underway. The new building will provide more than double the space currently allotted for the School of Business, which is situated in part of the former Student Center Building. And it is being designed as an environmentally sustainable structure that will provide a friendly confine for SCSU partnerships with the business community. Plans call for the facility to be the first building constructed by the state of Connecticut that will be a net-zero in terms of its carbon footprint. Solar panels added to the Lot 9 area on lower Farnham Avenue will help generate 90 percent of the building’s needs, supplemented by a below ground geothermal field at the rear of the construction site.
