United Consulting also received a top award in the Engineering category for the company’s work on the Cultural Trail.

“We are delighted and honored to receive this award,” said Brian Payne. “As much as it honors the Cultural Trail, it also honors the incredible team of committed professionals, and civic- and government-leaders who shared our vision for bringing this one-of-a-kind, world-class amenity to Indianapolis, and also devoted so much passion and energy to making it happen.”

The (re)thINk Award was presented by the Indiana Chapter of the United States Green Building Council to Rundell Ernstberger Associates, LLC for the Indianapolis Cultural Trail: A Legacy of Gene and Marilyn Glick project.
