A Concrete Hardscape Project At Greenwood Park Mall

32 foot base at bottom of fountainconcrete water fountain public plazaThe lifestyle center addition to the Greenwood Park Mall on U.S. Highway 31 North in Greenwood was completed in spring 2008. The project, which involved more than 1,000 cubic yards of concrete, is significant because it reflects the growing use of concrete in Indiana’s public spaces.

Smock Fansler, the concrete finisher, used special mixes for the 32-foot-diameter base of the main fountain and bevel-cut the joints to give the fountain a more refined look. In the center of the fountain, a cylinder’s bottom section was cast-in-place while the upper construction of fountain area at Greenwood Park Mallconcrete portion was precast on site and placed by a crane. A metal corn sculpture tops it off.

The main fountain’s outer areas were shaped with radial forms lined with texture and Lexan. The Lexan formed a smooth and shiny finish while the texture imprinted the recessed areas.
