Columbus Regional Airport Authority Baggage Claim Renovations

Port Columbus’ three-year, $80 million terminal renovation and modernization program will position the Airport for improvements regarding future passenger activity and will reinforce their economic impact to the Columbus region. The Baggage Claim renovation project will include: 60,000 square feet of aesthetic renovations (terrazzo, carpet, tile, ceilings, lights, HVAC, etc.); modernized restrooms; renovation of the baggage claim level administration offices; replacement of original facility storefront in office areas; installation of bag belt impact protection system; and replacement of Concourse A air handlers.

Nationwide Children’s Hospital Faculty Office Building

Ground will be broken late 2014 for a Faculty Office Building on the southeast corner of Livingston Avenue and Parsons Avenue. This facility will house academic offices that will be relocated from the hospital’s main campus to accommodate growth in the medical staff. The facility includes restaurant or retail space on a portion of the first floor, as well as a pedestrian tunnel under Livingston Avenue from the hospital’s main campus to provide access to this new building, the current parking garage, the Center for Family Safety and Healing and the Ronald McDonald House on the south side of Livingston.

Ohio Masonic Homes, Springfield Masonic Community

Ground was broken for the first phase of construction scheduled to take place from June 2014 to summer 2015. The new building will hold 65 studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments as well as an on-site physician’s clinic within 80,000 square feet. These new apartments will be completely modernized and will offer state-of-the-art comfort in a new wellness-based environment. Residents are projected to begin moving in late summer 2015. Additionally, the York Rite Building will undergo extensive renovations. The current Scottish Rite and Eastern Star wings of the Rickly Building will be razed to accommodate these improvements to campus.

The Ohio State University, Wilce Student Health Center

The renovation and addition project will upgrade the building to support a 21st century model of care by creating new clinical spaces, incorporating new technologies and optimizing patient flow. The addition will serve as the main entrance along the South side of the building creating a presence on the quadrangle formed by the Psychology Building, Cunz Hall, Thompson Library and RPAC. The increased square footage from the addition and enclosure of the patio on the ground floor will serve the renovation and planning of new patient registration, reception, and patient intake/exam spaces. The expanded pharmacy will move from the First Floor to the Ground Floor along a newly- designed quick care clinic. OSU construction updates can be found on their construction website:
