Project Description:

The Steven G. Mihaylo College of Business & Economics at California State University Fullerton supports the University’s commitment to the merging of the business and education worlds.  This flagship building, designed to maximize interaction among students, consists of three buildings that intersect to make up Mihaylo Hall.  Vantage worked with HOK to design the building-wide audiovisual technology systems and supporting building infrastructure and provided architectural and engineering design support related to the integration of audiovisual technologies in the new buildings.

Mihaylo Hall is also a showcase of cutting-edge technology – from teaching tools to office furnishings.  With an eye toward society’s priorities in the future, the hall was also built with strong environmental considerations – from the use of renewable building materials to maximum exposure to natural light.  “We integrated sustainability from day one, because the modern expectation is to do buildings differently,” says (Michael) Smith. (Director of the Office of Design & Construction at Cal State Fullerton).
