Indiana’s architecture, engineering, and construction professionals remain devoted to producing high-quality projects across the state in 2022 and for years to come. Building Excellence’s Changing the Landscape series showcases a few of the most exciting recent projects from a collection of Indiana’s most reputable design firms, contractors, and owners.
Noble County Annex Building
American Structurepoint and Weigand Construction

American Structurepoint and Weigand Construction recently attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Noble County Annex Building in Albion, Indiana. American Structurepoint and Weigand Construction provided design and construction services for a $15 million, two-story, 40,000-square-foot annex building to the Noble County Courthouse.

The new annex will bring under one roof most of the county’s administrative offices which are currently spread out among several buildings. The annex building, completed in May 2022, has a 22,000-square-foot ground level, 18,000-square-foot upper level, and 6,000-square-foot storage sublevel. American Structurepoint provided program validation, schematic design, construction documents, bidding, and construction administration for the project as well as structural and civil engineering services.

16 Tech Emerging Manufacturing Collaboration Center (EMC2)
American Structurepoint

Opened this June, the Emerging Manufacturing Collaboration Center (EMC2) in the 16 Tech Innovation District is designed to support the long-term growth of the state’s manufacturing industry. The $7.5 million, 60,000-square-foot hub provides collaboration space, training classrooms, and a testing center in which small-to-medium-sized innovators and entrepreneurs develop and adopt smart manufacturing technologies.

American Structurepoint provided concept programming, design development, construction documents, and construction administration to renovate an existing building at 16 Tech to house EMC2. The design team developed conference rooms, a multipurpose training room, light manufacturing space, a break room, large restroom/locker areas, a loading dock zone, and space for the first tenant in the building’s manufacturing side.

Progress is being made on the façade improvements for Riley Towers in downtown Indianapolis. When complete, a total of 450,000 bricks will be removed from both tower exteriors, another 180,000 bricks put back on, 55,000 square feet of air barrier installed, 5,000 linear feet of relief iron and flashing replaced, and over 150,000 linear feet of caulking applied. Continued success of this project can be attributed to the F.A. Wilhelm Construction and Barrett & Stokely team members managing this challenging and highly visible project.
