By Mike Dilts, President/CEO
I would like to thank everyone for being part of a great year at Shiel Sexton. The company had an active 2016, finishing a number of incredible projects. Indiana University opened its basketball season in an updated Assembly Hall. Both Butler University and University of Louisville moved students into newly constructed dormitories, each built in partnership with American Campus Communities. The University of Notre Dame’s newest research complex, McCourtney Hall, also opened its doors.
Shiel Sexton’s Carolinas region wrapped up some high-profile projects this year, including Woodfield Investments’ luxury apartment complex, Mercury NoDa, and Pike Nurseries’ newest retail location and greenhouse in Charlotte, NC.
Shiel Sexton Concrete had a full 2016, as it finished the concrete frame for the Ironworks Hotel at Keystone for Hendricks Commercial Properties, continued work at Rose Acre Farms in North Vernon, IN, and concluded hundreds of other concrete assignments.
As we embark upon 2017, we look forward to the completion of many projects we began this year. Liberty Fund Headquarters and Delta Faucet Headquarters will see the end of construction early in the upcoming year. The extensive renovation of guest rooms at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown will also conclude, while Home 2 Suites in Mishawaka plans to welcome guests by late summer 2017. Shiel Sexton also partnered with AHEPA to construct two affordable senior living facilities simultaneously in New Albany, IN and Indianapolis, IN.
Shiel Sexton Southeast will continue its progress on two high-end apartment buildings, Gateway Center with Woodfield Investments and 511 Queens with Faison. We are also excited to keep working with the National Institute of Health on their newest net zero warehouse.
2017 will be a year of growth as we begin work on transformative structures. Among the projects we are especially enthusiastic about are the Riley Children Health Sports Legends Experience at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, Butler’s Schwitzer Hall renovation, Indiana University’s Memorial Stadium renovation, The University of Notre Dame’s addition on Quinn Hall at Innovation Park and new men’s dorm, and University of Louisville’s Student Activity Center.
Anova Technical Services will assume its role as the technical representative for IU Health’s Bloomington’s hospital.
While a thrilling 2016 is on its way out the door, we believe that 2017 will only bring about bigger and better possibilities for all of Shiel Sexton.
