Iowa State University expanded the Gerdin Business Building to address the current and future programmatic space needs of the Ivy College of Business. 10Fold was hired to program the expansion and serve as the University’s Bridging Architect which included developing the building program and preparing the Design-Build RFP.
An approximate 40,000 GSF target was established for the expansion based on preliminary budget analysis and site constraints. The project scope also included utility infrastructure, site development, and other services associated with new building construction, including limited renovation of existing space within Gerdin at points of connection to the expansion.
The space program for the expansion included student-focused instructional and collaboration space, faculty and graduate student offices, as well as common spaces to support curricular, co-curricular and special events.
