The Indianapolis City Market, currently located on the same parcel of land allocated to it in 1821, has long been recognized by generations of city leaders as a vital part of the city's heritage.  In 2007 a $2 million renovation was launched to ensure that the Market would continue to play a  role in the city's future.  Silver Creek Engineering provided the structural design services for a new mezzanine addition in 2007.  Our services included the development of design loads, design of new structural framing and the reinforcing of existing framing for the new mezzanine.  We worked closely with the architect to provide details for floor openings and architecturally exposed structural supports.  We evaluated and designed connections into the existing historic brick building exterior walls.  We worked with the construction manager and the material supplier to assure that our designs and plans were constructed in a safe and efficient manner.

For over 120 years the Indianapolis City Market was crowded with buyers and sellers.  But after World War II, suburban living and supermarket chains emptied its aisles and closed its stalls.  The old marketplace, once a treasure, was becoming a burden to the city.  However, that changed with the revival of downtown Indianapolis in the early 1970s.  The Market was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1974 and  a $4.7 million restoration was completed in 1977.
