The University of Virginia broke ground in October of 2021 on the $33 million School of Data Science in Charlottesville. Designed by Hopkins Architects and VMDO, the four-story, 61,000-sf facility will feature four adaptive classrooms with integrated technologies to enhance experiential learning. Illuminated by abundant natural light, the highly transparent structure will include a double-height venue for lectures and events, a corporate commons for collaborative development with industry partners, and an interactive central staircase.

Overlooking a retention pond and an outdoor amphitheater, the sustainably designed building will provide faculty offices with operable windows for improved ventilation. A green roof terrace with inspiring views will provide a relaxing space for informal interaction. The project team includes engineering firm Arup, cost consultant Faithful+Gould, landscape architect DumontJanks, and AV/IT consultant NV5. Gilbane Building Company is the general contractor for the facility, which is slated for occupancy in early 2024.
