Butler University’s renovation of Hinkle Fieldhouse received the highest honor of the Monumental Award Wednesday, October 28, at the Indy Chamber’s annual Monumental Awards gala.
The premier awards ceremony, organized with assistance from the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS), honored the most significant achievements by individuals and businesses that contribute to excellence in architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, construction, real estate development, neighborhood revitalization, engineering, innovative reuse and public art throughout the Indianapolis region.
“The incredible renovation of Hinkle Fieldhouse takes a facility that’s been one of the best in college athletics for the last eight decades and brings it into the 21st century in a way that maintains its historical character,” Michael Huber, president and CEO of the Indy Chamber, explained. “This project and others submitted for the Monumental Awards showcase the vision and talents of Indy’s design, engineering, and construction industries as the cornerstone of our region’s built environment.”
The Monumental Award was accepted by representatives of Turner Construction Company.
The winner of the Monumental Award was selected by an impartial jury of community and professional leaders from the Indianapolis region. All awards were deliberated by sanctioning organizations selected from the specific area of discipline for each category.
