Since 2011, arcDESIGN has renovated over 2,900 residence hall rooms at Indiana University and collaborated on the design of two new residence halls. We design and renovate residence halls that have the potential to promote social, academic, and physical wellness. Creating inviting and memorable gathering spaces is key to encouraging students to interact, join activities, and make strong social connections.
The rapidly changing pace of technology and research makes laboratories complicated investments. We recognize the future lies with flexible, hybrid spaces that can easily accommodate a wide range of work. To equip lab designs to meet shifting needs and requirements, we combine modular components, state-of-the-art materials, specialized engineering, and advanced space planning.
Flexible classrooms, purposeful collaboration spaces, and smart use of on-line learning technology, are the foundation of today’s learning spaces that can deliver added value to universities.
To ensure future viability, stakeholders need insights into a building’s health. Our comprehensive assessments provide reliable recommendations based on material analysis, system age, and quality. Our studies include site, architectural, structural, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, fire protection, telecommunications, life safety, and security — empowering informed decisions through a detailed understanding of your building’s current state and potential lifespan.
aD is passionate about preserving historic spaces. We believe that these spaces should be enjoyed by future generations, and we’re committed to doing everything we can to make that happen. With deep knowledge and expertise in historic renovation and materials as well as modern design, we create seamless solutions that bridge the gap between preservation and long-term sustainability. We live out this commitment in our own 1890’s office space in downtown Indianapolis.
A key to successful production is a well designed greenhouse with good space utilization and accurate environment controls. We help universities create a place for plants to flourish and a comfortable learning environment for students.
