Cummins Distributions’ New HQ Enables Sustainability and Employee Productivity

Information sourced from Architectural Record


Architectural Record reports on how the Cummins Distribution Business’s new 179,000 sq HQ in downtown Indianapolis supports its commitment to sustainability, modern aesthetics and employee productivity.

New York-based architects Deborah Berke & Partners, supported by Syska, created the innovative nine-story building to continue the Fortune 500 engine maker’s tradition of distinguished modern architecture. The headquarters’ light-filled work environment and energy efficient structure were made possible through features including:

  • Internal and external sun-shading elements to optimize natural cooling and energy efficiency
  • Narrow floor plates for increased sunlight, reducing the need for electric illumination
  • Underfloor air distribution to improve ventilation and thermal comfort for building occupants
  • An open-floor to promote more face-to-face collaboration
  • Bright, airy “social hubs,” meeting rooms, and gathering spots
