The architecture team

In late summer of 2013, the architecture team of Ebert/Mayo/PGAV was chosen through a national competition to build the new College of Business Administration builidng.

The Ebert Mayo Design Group is a full-service architecture and design firm based in Manhattan, Kan. They have designed numerous projects for Kansas State including the garage and renovations to the K-State Student Union, Seaton Hall, Calvin Hall, and Peters Recreation Complex. They have also designed the K-State Salina Student Life Center, the University of Kansas Student Recreation Fitness Center, and many higher education and K-12 academic buildings. Ebert Mayo developed the new College of Business Administration conceptual renderings you have previously seen, so they are very familiar with the project and our needs.

PGAV is an architecture and planning firm located in both Kansas City and St. Louis. They have designed numerous university projects, including the Price College of Business at the University of Oklahoma, the Hunt College of Business at the University of Central Arkansas, the Helzberg School of Management at Rockhurst University, as well as the completed addition and renovation of Justin Hall at K-State.

Orazem & Scalora Engineering specializes in mechanical, electrical and plumbing design. Recent projects for Kansas State include the garage, renovations to both East and West Memorial Stadium, and the Mosier Hall Laboratory Renovation.
