The Frank and Marisa Martire Business & Communications Center is home to the College of Business and Department of Communications and Media Studies. The design highlights its innovative facilities, including a striking lecture hall and gathering space, an active trading floor, multimedia classrooms, a motion picture and animation lab, two television studios, and a radio station. SGH designed the structure and consulted on the enclosure for the building with a 100-year service life.
