In September 2011, Robert Morris University officially unveiled its new School of Business. The two-story, 18,000-square-ft building houses the United States Steel Corp. video conferencing and technology center, the ATI Center, PNC Trading Simulation Room, general classrooms, faculty computer lab, student zone, executive board room and offices for the University President and Vice President.
Celli-Flynn Brennan Architects & Planners designed the building to create a strong identity for the Business School that blends with the historic garden and the surrounding buildings.
IMETCO was selected for its ability to meet the various challenges presented by the metal design on this project, including tapered metal roofing sections, curved metal roofing sections at vaulted dormers, and an equipment screen over open framing. IMETCO’s single source metal roofing solution included SS Panel metal roofing used in straight, tapered and curved roofing areas, and PermLok metal roofing was used for the equipment screen.
RMU’s new business school is part of the $40 million “Changing Lives, Building Futures” fundraising initiative. Robert Morris University has 5,000 students throughout its programs and marks its 90th year in 2011.
