GDI partnered with Anderson University and Purdue University to create a three-story class A office facility featuring educational and residential areas, a professional development center, a 165-seat multi-tiered conference room, and a full kitchen. The building is an expansion to an existing 40,000 square foot class A office.
A fast-track, design-build construction delivery method was utilized to meet an aggressive completion date. The project also included major late-stage changes including additional residential space.
Even with the need to coordinate with two institutions of higher education and a change in the game plan, construction was completed in less than ten months.
Anderson University has worked with GDI Construction on several university construction projects over the past three years including housing for undergraduate and graduate students, and a dynamic and complex education center at the Flagship located at exit 22 on the I69 corridor. We have found their staff to be professional, competent and responsive. Management routinely demonstrates their genuine desire to construct a building that meets and exceeds the needs of their clients.

I am amazed at the timing in which this building has been designed and constructed. Purdue’s typical timeframe to design and build a building similar in scope and magnitude to this is three years. The Flagship Education Center has been designed and built in eighteen months with a very high level of quality and finish.
