The University of North Dakota is planning to break ground in fall of 2020 on the $70 million Nistler College of Business and Public Administration in Grand Forks. Designed by JLG Architects, the four-story, 111,000-sf facility will offer highly flexible learning environments capable of accommodating a wide range of instructional modalities. Technology-enabled classrooms will support a combination of online and in-person instruction, with educational spaces right-sized for appropriate density metrics. A student engagement hub with integrated advising and career development services will occupy the ground floor of the building, which will also act as a venue for events, recruiting fairs, and symposia. Featuring open spaces illuminated by natural light, the structure will leverage a highly efficient building envelope and advanced mechanical systems to achieve significant energy savings. The project will be built by a joint venture of PCL Construction and Community Contractors. Occupancy is expected in fall of 2022.
