Expansion for Dallas university

Rogers-O’Brien Construction (RO) has officially broken ground on Southern Methodist University’s (SMU) Cox School of Business in Dallas


A ceremony was held on Friday, May 6 to celebrate the beginning of the momentous project.

RO will complete approximately 157,000 square feet of renovations to the existing Joseph M. Wylie Fincher building, the Trammell Crow building and the Cary M. Maguire building. Additionally, a 63,000 square foot expansion will be added to the existing buildings and underground connecting spaces.

The expansions and renovations will lead SMU into the next century of learning, with more dynamic and integrated learning spaces. Updates will include major enhancements to technology, ‘cluster classrooms,’ and event spaces. This project is part of SMU’s Ignited Campaign.

RO is excited to partner with GFF, the architect of record, as well as repeat client, Southern Methodist University. The project is slated for completion in 2024.
