INDIANAPOLIS, IN — The USGBC Indiana community announces the winners of its Leadership Awards, which recognize individuals who have made outstanding commitments to their local communities and projects in Indiana, with outstanding achievements in the realm of green building design and construction.

USGBC Indiana recognizes four people and four projects. The Mindy Hanni Award is named in honor of the late Mindy Hanni, one of the early adopters of LEED and green building practices in Indiana. Hanni’s service helped advance sustainable building practices throughout the state, and the individual receiving the Mindy Hanni Award and those receiving the Volunteer Leadership Awards have all been involved with the community for many years, focusing on supporting local sustainability. For the project award winners, eligible projects were judged based on the categories in the LEED rating system.

Projects
SmithGroup's Indiana Toll Road Administration and Operations Building | Project Administrator: HJKessler Associates

Indiana Toll Road’s new 25,000-square-foot headquarters is the epicenter for toll road monitoring, maintenance, and administration. It features open office seating, a large control room for data gathering and toll road monitoring, and a central two-story atrium operating as a warm winter solarium and shaded collaboration space in the summer. The facility is in a woodland site with a pedestrian path and photovoltaic solar panels that generate around 40 percent of the building’s energy. SmithGroup achieved high performance in many attributes of the building and site design by working as an integrated team. An open, collaborative approach to design allowed the team to set goals at the beginning of the project and see them through construction and client implementation.
