General Services Administration Birch Bayh Federal Building & U.S. Courthouse Exterior and Vestibule Door Replacement

The GSA selected BHDG Architects, as part of their Region 5 GSA IDIQ Contract, to replace the Exterior South Door Entrance Assemblies as well as the Interior Vestibule Doors for the Southeast and Southwest Entrances at the Birch Bayh Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Indianapolis, IN.   The entrance framing and interior vestibule door assemblies were designed with durability and maintenance considerations in mind using steel doors with powder coating to resemble the patinaed bronze windows above each of the entrances.  Additional cast iron decoration was added commensurate with the historical design intent.  Granite Door Landings and limestone entrance panels at the exterior door jambs were repaired.  The building serves as the federal courthouse for the Southern District of Indiana as well as housing various other federal agencies.  BHDG, in conjunction with other design team members, completed the design including documentation of existing conditions, analysis of relevant historic documents, coordination and design of security systems and ballistic glazing, as well as development of full construction documents.
