UNM Leaders breaking ground on New Anderson School of Management

McCarthy Building Companies NM, Inc. celebrated the groundbreaking on the new Anderson School of Management building alongside University of New Mexico (UNM) leadership and City of Albuquerque officials today. The cutting-edge 4-story, 61,000-square-foot building will be positioned as one of the school’s northern entryways, featuring a large center space for student gatherings and events.  

The $25 million project is designated to be certified LEED Silver and includes demolition of the existing Anderson West building, built in 1968. Classrooms, a new advisement and career placement center, marketing and behavioral lab, computer lab, innovation lab, faculty offices, dean’s suite, group study rooms and casual seating throughout are part of the final design projected to be completed spring 2018.
