The Marshall School of Business at USC has embarked upon an ambitious modernization of their two primary facilities, Hoffman Hall and Bridge Hall, to insure the University’s continued success in attracting the very best students and faculty.
The renovation of Bridge Hall, built in the style of the campus’ Romanesque tradition, creates offices on the second and third floors for administration, departmental offices and IT support services. The new trading room provides students with real time securities market information and distance learning opportunities and will double as an executive conference room for visiting business luminaries.
Hoffman Hall is an eight-story, poured-in-place concrete building designed by I.M. Pei and completed in 1965. The renovation, which includes faculty offices, support areas and seminar rooms, remains faithful to the clarity of the original architecture. The windows for the entire building have been replaced with energy-efficient low-E glazing and the electrical and mechanical systems have been upgraded.
The Hoffman Hall project was designed and permitted in six months. Construction began one week after commencement in mid-May, and concluded construction by mid-August in time for the start of fall classes.
