On Indiana University’s Bloomington campus, the Simon Hall building is the center of science and research efforts, housing the Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics, Proteomics Center, Biochemistry / Biophysics Program, shared instrumentation facilities, administration offices and conference space. The building is situated among the most historic buildings on campus and, both, maintains and complements the distinctive architectural style of the surrounding limestone halls.
Serving as the general contractor for this project, Wilhelm built clad-in-smooth, buff cut limestone pieces. These sections included window heads, sills and jambs, quoins and accent stones. Wilhelm’s Simon Hall exterior won Masonry Construction Magazine’s Best Institutional Project.
