"The Micron Business and Economics Building on the corner of University Drive and Capitol Boulevard is nearing completion and will celebrate a grand opening just before the start of the fall semester in August. The four-story, 118,890-square-foot building is designed to emphasize student learning, research and community collaboration. It will include state-of-the art classrooms, a lecture hall, a student commons area that includes food service, unique student work spaces, a financial technology classroom, financial trading room, productive spaces for research and a vibrant courtyard," (Boise State University blog post of April 27, 2012).

The Boise State University, College of Business and Economics Building (COBE) Building greenroof has an abundance of school spirit! Go Broncos! The roof starts with various shades of orange and then blooms blue! Used on a rooftop patio that the students and staff can go out and enjoy.

The LiveRoof Standard Module System was used over a .80 Firestone TPO. Assorted sedums with Campanulas bloom throughout the year.
