Indiana War Memorial Life Safety Improvements
Location: Indianapolis, IN
Built in 1924 to honor the sacrifices of Hoosier veterans, the neoclassical Indiana War Memorial stands as an iconic symbol in the Indianapolis skyline. As the museum within the Memorial evolved beyond its initial design, unforeseen life safety challenges arose. Synthesis Incorporated is spearheading a meticulous restoration project to safeguard this historic landmark and its cherished artifacts.

Museum Evolution and Life Safety Challenges
Spaces intended for meetings and banquets transformed into exhibit areas, compromising exit paths and doors. While a testament to the museum's success, this unplanned evolution necessitated addressing critical life safety issues.
