JE Dunn completed construction of the Soules College of Business, a state-of-the-art STEM and business building for the University of Texas at Tyler. The new 140,000 SF, 4-story academic facility focuses on science, technology, engineering, math and business programs. It features a 135-seat auditorium and several classrooms ranging from 35 to 90 seats. These classrooms are supported by several interactive lab spaces for various disciplines including metals and non-metals, robotics, software engineering, data mining, digital forensics, data analytics, networking, as well as labs that specialize in retail and consumer insights research and practical application.
In addition to the academic spaces, the project includes 60 faculty offices, a dean’s suite, and multiple open collaboration and study areas spread throughout the space to foster an immersive and interdisciplinary learning environment. The project also includes a new 100,000 SF, 3-level, 315-car parking garage utilizing a combination of cast-in-place and precast structural elements.
The largest of UT Tyler's six colleges, the Soules College of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering and the Category Management Association, one of only four schools in the nation to receive such distinction.
