Just wow! Everyone at American Structurepoint is so honored to be named 2018 Design Firm of the Year by ENR Midwest. We are beyond gratified and so honored to achieve industry recognition for delivering quality projects for the communities we serve.

A blog on the ENR website said this about us, “The depth and breadth of American Structurepoint’s work really set the 52-year-old firm apart … and won over a majority of the voting editors at ENR.”

Several of our projects celebrated grand openings in 2017, among them the BlueSky Technology Partners headquarters, Purdue Technology Center Aerospace, the South Bend Smarts Street initiative,  and the State Route 83-Mills Road Roundabout in Lorain County, Ohio. Other projects had groundbreakings in 2017 – the Market Avenue Phase III road project in Terre Haute, the CEDIA headquarters in Fishers, and the 35,000-sft Hammond Sportsplex and Community Center.

We also were part of a team honored by ENR Midwest for the 2017 Project of the Year, the East End Crossing project. American Structurepoint designed Section 6 of the East End Crossing that included 4 miles of SR 625, reconstruction of two interchange ramps, and designing 17 bridges.

ENR Midwest  has tracked our growth over the past several years. American Structurepoint has consistently held a spot in the top 15 of ENR Midwest’s Top Design Firms ranking since 2010. We jumped two spots to No. 13 this year with $82.27 million in revenue in 2017, up from the $74.36 million in the previous year.

Our people make all of this possible. Our employees continually demonstrate the drive, talent, and commitment to delivering excellence and innovation to our clients on time and on budget. I am so proud of the entire American Structurepoint team and even better, looking forward to delivering top-notch projects for each and every client in the years ahead.

 

 

 

Celebrating a BlueSky Future

Morning shotAmerican Structurepoint is honored and thankful to be joining with BlueSky Technology Partners and the City of Noblesville to bring new growth and vitality to the Federal Hill District.

We proudly participated in the June 29 groundbreaking at Westfield Road and John Street for BlueSky’s 42,000 square foot international headquarters. Other participants included Meyer Najem, the project’s building contractor, and Stock Yards Bank & Trust, which is providing project financing.

The BlueSky project represents some major milestones for growth in Noblesville. The new headquarters is the first major development since the Federal Hill Commons project took flight. Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear said the project is the first non-medical office building constructed in Noblesville in nearly 30 years. BlueSky, an eCommerce consulting company, is also growing, with plans to recruit 10 to 15 high-tech millennials to new jobs with salaries that will average more than $90,000 a year.

BlueSky Groundbreaking (2)

Kyle St. Peter, Kaitlyn Barrett, Rob Bray, Randy Robison, and Brandon Hoopingarner of American Structurepoint break ground on the new BlueSky headquarters in Noblesville

The building’s design follow through on our commitment to improving the built environment one project, one community at a time. Our design resulted from an extensive visioning session that helped BlueSky define its company, culture, and brand. The result is a contemporary, mixed-used office building that delivers vibrancy and western “Colorado” style in the Federal district. The exterior design looked to create a warm palette within the use of natural stone veneers and wood grain finish accent features along the roof line. Large glazing expanses are located for natural lighting in the open office plans as well as for future tenants in the lower levels.

The top three levels are for collaborative office use while the main level is intended for restaurant tenant space and outdoor dining. An outdoor terrace off a common breakroom area on the fourth floor provides BlueSky employees with scenic views of downtown Noblesville and the new Federal Hills Commons area.

Here’s hoping that the BlueSky headquarters is only the beginning for continued economic development in the Federal Hills District.
