Infosys hired Browning to assist in the development and manage construction to revitalize a 70.5-acre site on the west side of Indianapolis on the grounds of the old Indianapolis airport terminal. The first project of the U.S. Education Center is the Infosys Technology and Innovation Hub, a 125,000 SF state-of-the-art training center.
Infosys wanted to build the training center to one of the highest standards in sustainable design, and recieved Platinum certification under the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system. Browning worked closely with the architect, Browning Day, during design on key details like material selection, construction waste, and building life cycle optimization.
The Infosys Technology and Innovation Hub utilizes traditional local materials like limestone and also new materials like CarbonCure – concrete that mineralizes CO2 in a process that enhances the concrete’s compressive strength without compromising the concrete’s quality or impacting its price, all while reducing the carbon footprint.
“We pride ourselves at Browning for not only understanding how a building functions for a client, but how it fits into their corporate culture and core values,” Scott Hirschman, AIA, NCARB, president of construction at Browning. “In addition to constructing a sustainable building, working towards pollution prevention is one of Infosys’ environmental protection initiatives. Utilizing the CarbonCure technology was a great fit.”
