The Hendricks County Fairgrounds Association was presented an opportunity to relocate their site. Mussett Nicholas Associates assisted throughout the entire process from start to finish including, feasibility studies, planning, site selection, programming, design, and construction administration.
The entire 3-year process resulted in a new 110-acre site with 16 buildings, at a total project cost of $15 million.
The new Fairgrounds include a Community Building with a multi-purpose auditorium, commercial kitchen, cafeteria, offices, classrooms, and connected Exhibit Hall.
AISIN Manufacturing Illinois has three buildings located on one site. MNA planned the site and originally developed a 19,800-square-foot office and 43-acre site with 144,000 square feet of manufacturing space. Two more buildings were added to the site, bringing the gross site square footage to 333,500 square feet. Automotive body components such as sunroofs, sliding door modules, and power back door units are produced in this facility.
Mussett Nicholas Associates assisted Plainfield Community Schools in programming the facility for grades six through eight. Master planning for renovation work was staged over several summers to allow the school to remain functional and occupied. Decommissioning a centrally located pool, separating the school property from the town’s overloaded storm system, relocating kindergarten classrooms to three elementary schools, and interior remodels of the high school were all part of this project.
