Business and Engineering Complex

Project Overview

An exciting, new major project is in the works at Bradley. The university is taking the next steps to move forward with the new business and engineering complex. Located on the current sites of Baker and Jobst halls, the building will be the new home for the Foster College of Business and the Caterpillar College of Engineering and Technology, as well as the Institute for Innovation through Collaboration.

The entrance off Main Street was designed as an inviting gateway to Bradley's interior campus. Abundant windows and glass walls will make visible the process of learning and phases of innovation to help inspire our campus, our community and our students.

This new facility will enhance Peoria's Main Street corridor, enriching livability in the surrounding neighborhoods, paving the way for more developments and helping draw attention to and elevate the status of our region as an innovator in both education and economic development.
