Boy Scouts of America Program Education Center

Indianapolis, Indiana

The Scout Education and Program Center is the operational headquarters for the Crossroads of America Council. The building includes the program facility, scout executive offices, a scout retail store, large gathering rooms and indoor and outdoor training areas. The land required extensive site work, including working around existing wetlands, selectively clearing a heavily-wooded lot and installing an acre retention pond. Sustainable project features include native landscaping, waterless urinals, motion sensing faucets and flush valves, natural lighting, occupancy sensor lights, eco-friendly insulation, passive solar heating and daylight windows.
