Yale SOM Alumni Visit Evans Hall

A group of Yale SOM alumni from the Connecticut area recently got a chance to see the rapid progress being made on Edward P. Evans Hall, the new home of the Yale School of Management. The tour on August 3, led by Yale SOM director of facilities Bob Saidi, was organized by the Connecticut Chapter of the SOM Alumni Association.In recent weeks, workers have installed glass panels around the courtyard at the center of Evans Hall and the Beinecke Room, a function space at the back of the building. Steel framing for interior walls is in place, as is drywall in the building’s signature curved classrooms. With these interior structures visible, the visitors were able to get a sense for many of the spaces in the building, including the classrooms, the dining hall, the student lounge just off the courtyard, the Wilbur L. Ross Jr. Library, the Beinecke Room, and the staff and faculty offices surrounding an atrium in the building’s south wing.
