Gaige Technology and Business Innovation Building

The new Gaige Technology and Business Innovation Building was dedicated on Thursday, November 3, 2011. Named in honor of the college’s late dean and CEO Emeritus Frederick H. Gaige, the new building houses the college’s Business; Engineering; Information Sciences and Technology; and Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management degree programs. It includes more than 60,000 square feet, making it the largest academic facility at Penn State Berks. Designed to complement the natural beauty and existing architecture of the campus, the three-story structure is as cutting-edge as the learning and discovery that takes place within it. A range of sustainability strategies, including rainwater collection and a heat-recovery system, resulted in the building being awarded the prestigious LEED certification as a “green” facility.
