Our headquarters, located in the revitalized Capitol Corridor of downtown Indianapolis, was designed to intentionally integrate MEP features into the building’s architecture. The unique look and approach to efficient design also created for a visually appealing and productive workspace. When the building opened, it was awarded merit awards by the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce for innovative reuse in a rehabilitation and interior design topping some of the most premiere construction projects in Central Indiana.
The building’s mechanical system is unique, incorporating the latest in energy efficient, low maintenance and sustainable design. The core of the building is conditioned by a water-cooled Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system. The perimeter and some conference rooms are served by Active Chilled Beams, which require only 23% of the fan driven airflow of a typical Variable Air Volume (VAV) system, resulting in astounding fan energy saving. An innovative liquid desiccant dehumidifying air handler with air pretreated by an enthalpy core heat exchanger provides the ventilation air for the building and the primary air for the Active Chilled Beams. An efficient Water-Source Heat Pump with hot gas reheat for humidity control serves the Training Room. The water-cooled system is cooled by an eco-Fluid Cooler, designed to save 92% of the water used by a typical fluid cooler.
An open protocol control system provided by Open Control Systems ensures that the HVAC, lighting and security systems are optimized and gives the owner real time and historic data to make sure the investment in these systems achieve their full value.
