University of Chicago: Graduate School of Business

Chicago, IL

The 415,000-square-foot Graduate School is comprised of thinly cut limestone slabs cast on architectural precast concrete panels. Precast also forms the horizontal sunshade elements, which provide shading relief to the interior perimeter spaces. By embedding limestone in the precast panels, a secondary structural system was not required since the panels span between the structural columns. The wall panels were delivered to the site with the stone in place eliminating trades typically involved in the masonry process which saved the owner both time and money.
