Circle Design Group has provided MEP design services for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway since 1984. These buildings are among the most recognizable around the world of racing. We have renovated existing buildings and added new buildings at this racing facility. To accommodate Formula One racing, we provided MEP services for new garages and suites, a race control tower (resembling the original Pagoda), pit/victory circle area, media/broadcast building and television compound. In 2016, we assisted with the upgrading of the main entrance plaza and the corners of Crawfordsville Road and Georgetown Road. We provided lighting design for the plaza and signage.
In preparation of the 100th Running of the race in 2019, we continued serving the Indianapolis Motor Speedway by providing MEP design for new Grandstand C hospitality suites located at the north end of the Paddock and outside of the track. The Hulman Terrace Suites get you as close to Turn 4 as you can get and provides luxury with private restrooms, food and beverage amenities and stadium-style outdoor seating. The view is magnificent.
