A Vision for Collaboration and Innovation in Teaching

Texas Christian University, Neeley School of Business Expansion and Renovation Planning & Feasibility Study, Fort Worth, TX

The Neeley School of Business links a new building – the Spencer and Marlene Hays Business Commons – with two existing buildings which will be renovated to provide flexible and inventive teaching environments in an integrated whole. The project stems from the school’s goals to solidify its position as a premier global business school and business hub for North Texas.

The Neeley School will anchor the Intellectual Commons – the academic core of the campus – designed to spur innovation and the creation of new ideas.

The multi-phase project includes east and south wings, a central atrium, an office complex, auditorium and inter-active classrooms around a landscaped business quad. Exterior and interior elements strike a balance between contemporary design and the design traditions of TCU. Features include a high-technology “Bloomberg room” as well as well-appointed recruitment facilities. Workplace strategies were employed to ensure maximum collaboration and space utilization in student and faculty office environments.


We are investing in a space where business innovation and the principles that drive all our businesses will come together to inspire future generations of students.
