Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) October 13, 2016 -- A special year for Indiana environmental company EnviroForensics continues with the opening of the organization’s brand new, state-of-the-art headquarters in downtown Indianapolis. The nationally recognized team of Indiana environmental consultants from EnviroForensics are set to celebrate 20 years of service helping drycleaners and small business owners address vapor intrusion.
President and CEO, Stephen R. Henshaw comments, “EnviroForensics now has a distinctive home to match our unique approach to cleaning up and protecting communities from vapor intrusion. With Indiana serving as our national headquarters, we really want to draw the community in to become actively engaged with our work and mission, and this redeveloped facility offers community space and statewide artist displays to help support that.”
Doors will open to the public Thursday, October 13 at 825 N. Capitol Avenue for an Open House, and an informational session on clean water for developing countries will be presented by Water for Empowerment.
The new headquarter building was, at one time, a transmissions garage and a costume warehouse. In the summer of 2015, EnviroForensics engaged with local firms MAWR Design and Brandt Construction to redevelop the two-building structure that dates back to the 1930’s. The result is a maintenance-free chic, industrial-style single building office and community space, designed to thrive for decades to come. This is the latest in a string of redevelopment projects to take shape in the increasingly vibrant Central Business District area in downtown Indianapolis.
Docent-led tours of EnviroForensics’ Headquarters will include detailed descriptions of the construction and design process, including innovative use of energy efficient lighting and natural lighting, custom-built furnishings, the joining of the two buildings, and showcasing the Community areas.
The tours will also include viewing of artwork by Indiana artists – contemporary and historical – and the unveiling of a new light installation by Quincy Owens.
An interesting addition to the Open House is the information session, EnviroForensics Headquarters’ inaugural Community Space event. EnviroForensics founder Steve Henshaw and and business partner (and wife), Dawn Sandoe are founders and supporters of the charitable organization Water for Empowerment. The organization’s mission is to empower girls and women to build healthy futures through clean water initiatives in developing countries. The informational session, presented by Vincent Casey of WaterAid America and Water for Empowerment, is entitled “How Clean Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Eradicate Poverty.” The presentation comes with an introduction by State Representative and candidate for Lieutenant Governor of Indiana, Christina Hale.
The schedule of events is:
3:00 PM Education Session in Community Room
