American Structurepoint Senior Project Manager Brandon Farley, AIA, LEED AP BD + C, has earned the 2016 Young Architect Award from the Indiana Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

The Young Architect Award recognizes a licensed Indiana architect, age 40 or less, who has demonstrated proficient knowledge and exceptional accomplishments in, and contributions to, architecture. Farley has completed projects at every major university in Indiana. During his career, he has also designed numerous Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design LEED-certified projects and serves as American Structurepoint’s in-house LEED specialist and director of sustainability.

Farley enjoys specializing in education because of the high degree of client engagement. He loves being able to help grow and evolve a sense of place at college campuses.

“Higher education is a market that I’m passionate about and committed to,” Farley said. “I am honored to receive this award, but the foundation was laid through working with so many incredible clients whose visions I’m proud to have helped make realities.”

Farley also is passionate about giving back to his profession. He is especially committed to the Indiana High School Architectural Design Competition, a statewide architectural design competition hosted by AIA Indiana. He has volunteered on the competition’s committee for 12 years and has served as the chairperson since 2011.

Farley joined American Structurepoint in 2013. His experience in programming, land planning, space planning, building design and project management has allowed him to take on numerous project types beyond the education sector to include residential, retail, commercial, hospitality and municipal markets. Farley also has stepped up to become the American Structurepoint WELL Building StandardTM leader. WELL Building Standard is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and well-being through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind.
