FREDERICK DOUGLASS FAMILY CENTER
Indy Parks and Recreation has appointed Meticulous Design + Architecture (Meticulous) to revive and commence work on the Frederick Douglass Park Family Center project. Design firm Moody Nolan completed an in-depth process of community engagement, concept design, and schematic design for a new modern 21st-century facility befitting the growing needs of the Martindale-Brightwood area.
The initial output by Moody Nolan, in working with Indy Parks and Recreation and Frederick Douglass Park Family Center staff, provided a preliminary construction program and an initial cost estimate. Two community meetings followed, informing the general public while engaging their support in the building of the new center design. Moody Nolan received feedback from these open gatherings and used it to influence the design ideas and concepts.
Using the existing designs as a guide and starting point, Meticulous is now leading a diverse and inclusive design team including Moody Nolan to see the new family center project to fruition. Meticulous will continue the community's participation, obtaining feedback for critical needs, updating the previous option, and ultimately reflect the Advisory Committee and Community Stakeholders' comprehensive input.
