Eskenazi Health Ambulatory Care Unit (ACU)

Indianapolis, Indiana

American Structurepoint was the structural engineer for this six-story structure that serves as the "front door" to a completely new building campus for Wishard Hospital. The design features a striking extended front façade and canopy that makes it a welcoming entrance point for the hospital complex. The building structure is framed with composite structural steel for strength and economy. The roof was designed to make LEED options available including a vegetated multi-purpose "green" roof. Building information modeling (BIM) software was utilized throughout design to allow coordination between the many consultants on this many-faceted, multi-building project. Utilization of BIM enabled better understanding of the interplay of elements within the Ambulatory Clinic itself, as well as its connectivity with adjacent healthcare buildings, including the main hospital tower, parking garage, and medical office building.
