American Structurepoint architects will design a new $13.7 million global headquarters that will allow an international trade association to better showcase the latest smart home technology to its 3,700 member companies and other design professionals. Our firm is also providing interior design, landscape design, structural, and civil engineering services for the global headquarters of CEDIA, a trade association for companies that design, manufacture, and install home technology products like security systems, smart lighting, and high-end audio/entertainment systems. The new 40,880-sft headquarters will be built in Fishers, Indiana, in the Delaware Tech Park. CEDIA plans to occupy 30,000 sft on the first and third floors that will include private and open office space, a world-class training facility, an experience center, and an advanced boot camp space that will be made available for member use. CEDIA plans to attract tenants that complement their mission to rent the remaining 10,000 sft. The Architecture Group’s previous work on corporate headquarters –Meyer Najem’s Nickel Plate Building and BlueSky Technology Partners – led to American Structurepoint having the opportunity to work with Meyer Najem as the preferred design-build team. Rob Bray, project manager for the CEDIA design, said that CEDIA board members saw the group’s work at the Meyer Najem and BlueSky Technology Partners HQs and wanted the same expertise in creating a more open, collaborative work environment. CEDIA hopes to move in to its new HQ by fall 2018.
