About Indiana Institute of Technology

Indiana Institute of Technology serves over 4,000 students from around the world.  The school, located in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana, is known for esteemed programs in mathematics, engineering, and science, but also offers a well-regarded liberal arts program.  In the past decade, the school has undergone rapid growth thanks to the strength of its academic programs.

Their Problem

The school's continued growth has presented the ongoing challenge of offering high-quality housing for students.  Over the summer of 2008, the 21,000 SFT Evans-Kimmell Hall was completed by Whitley Manufacturing, and the school's overall development plan called for a sister facility to be constructed.  Design Collaborative of Fort Wayne, Indiana designed the structure and Whitley Manufacturing prepared a project timeline with an aggressive completion schedule, controlled construction costs, and an aesthetic that complemented Evans-Kimmell Hall and the remainder of the campus.

Our Solution

The project spanned only 90 days from the beginning of construction work to occupancy of the building.  By utilizing modular construction techniques, the structure was built off-site in a controlled environment while the foundations and site-work were underway at the campus.  As a result, the disruption to the campus and student safety were kept to a minimum.

For Frank & Anne Oropeza Hall, Whitley Manufacturing utilized unique designs including slab-on-grade modular construction, panelized building sections, and modular units with flooring omitted, allowing us to quickly provide an enclosed building and include areas such as the stairwells.  Materials and finishes were selected for aesthetics as well as their durability and ease of maintenance to minimize the building's life-cycle costs for the school.
