Size 34,000 SF historic renovation
Construction Completion 2020
Building Project Summary
The American Legion’s national headquarters was originally located on a five city block plaza in Indianapolis . The historic 777 N. Meridian St. building was renovated as part of an Indiana War Memorial Plaza development.
R.E. Dimond and Associates was challenged to renovate and modernize this historic neoclassical structure with updated and energy efficient heating, air-conditioning, fire suppression, plumbing and telecommunications to create centralized office space for Indiana’s Veteran Affairs organizations.
The building utilizes steam and chilled water from Citizens Thermal Energy for space conditioning and humidification. Four-pipe fan coil units, piping, electrical and telecommunication systems were concealed in ceiling bulkheads to minimize necessary alterations to the historic building. Electrical design included new building electrical service and an integrated lighting control system for energy savings. Advanced technology networks provide security, video and intrusion surveillance of the building. The building is now fully sprinkled for fire protection.
