Loyola University Chicago | John and Kathy Schreiber Center

The John and Kathy Schreiber Center, located at Loyola University Chicago’s Water Tower campus, is a 10-story, 150,000 sf, mixed-use facility serving students and faculty at the Quinlan School of Business Administration. Designed to consolidate previously isolated school branches, the building offers programmatically integrated spaces, classrooms, offices, and breakout areas organized around a stacked central core of multi-story lobbies with a social stair spanning the height of the building.

The LEED Gold building harvests daylight through a large glass atrium, utilizing natural ventilation to transfer air from perimeter spaces through the atrium, exiting through motorized skylights. Dual temperature radiant ceilings condition classroom and multipurpose spaces, and a centralized building automation system controls windows and shading.

As Loyola’s prime consultant, Cotter provided project management services.
