Client Objectives

Eli Lilly needed a design-build team offering a comprehensive suite of services in order to help them construct, maintain, and renovate multiple facilities across Indiana.


Shambaugh has worked on multiple projects with Eli Lilly.

Across a 53-year partnership, Shambaugh worked on capital projects and facility maintenance at Eli Lilly’s Tippecanoe Laboratories. Throughout this partnership, Shambaugh & Son provided all mechanical, electrical, fire protection, and general trade work needed for the facility.

Another project, based in Indianapolis, required fast-track MEP engineering and construction for a three-story, 82,000-square-foot building along with a two-story, 86,000-square-foot building. Both buildings were part of Eli Lilly’s Technology Center. Shambaugh’s scope included 1,996 sprinkler heads, 17,968 linear feet of piping, 200,000 CFM of air handling units, and four million BTU of steam heat.
