One Indiana Square

Indianapolis, Indiana

When a tornado hit in 2006, One Indiana Square incurred significant damage to its exterior. The project challenges Gensler to re-skin the tower, converting its exterior into a modern, glass façade, while maintaining the building's current 70 percent occupancy and minimizing tenant disruption. These goals will be accomplished through the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) combined with an innovative solution that involves welding new out-riggers of steel to the columns, creating a slab that allows re-skinning to occur from the exterior.
