Indianapolis office building becomes 21st-century learning environment
A 13,325-sf office building in Indianapolis is being leased by the Metropolitan School District of Pike Township to support Pike Preparatory Academy and Pacers Academy High School, the district’s alternative education programs for middle and high school students. Fanning Howey provided design services for the $1.6 adaptive reuse project, replacing rows of cubicles with classrooms, a student lounge, and administrative spaces. The project, completed within 10 months, uses exposed ductwork, undulating metal grids, and extensive use of glass to create a college-type atmosphere. Myers Construction Management served as general contractor.
