KEEPING UP WITH THE QUAD
The Tepper Quad achieves an important architectural milestone as the largest building project in North America to employ “BubbleDeck” technology.
This voided slab methodology involves placing hollow plastic balls or “bubbles” within a steel rebar cage, around which the concrete is poured. Here’s how this new technology is pushing the Tepper Quad toward its anticipated LEED Gold certification.

Help Us Build the Bridge
- A $10,000 gift payable over two years will support the construction of the Level 3 bridge that connects the undergraduate and graduate wings of the Tepper School.
- Level 3 will be a high-traffic area, housing the Accelerate Leadership Center, the Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship, Student Services, and a variety of team study and collaboration spaces.
- This gift will be recognized with a permanent display of the donor’s name in this highly visible location.
Please join in on the opportunity to make an impact via the new Alumni Bridge, which will serve as a focal point in the new building and connect all constituents of the Tepper School community to one another and to Carnegie Mellon — symbolically and literally.
