Columbus Business First recapped Ohio State's biggest construction projects over the last decade. As the outlet cites, from 2010 to 2019, the school's six largest construction projects alone totaled nearly $1.9 billion.
One big-ticket item helped the school reach that lofty spending total. The largest project of the decade – the $1.1 billion Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute, more commonly known as The James – carried three times the price tag of its nearest peer.
"This was an enormous project by any measure," said ...
And live from Columbus, it’s campus construction! Curious students and alumni can observe campus construction in real-time on a new university website.
Time and Change: Building the Future is a university website that provides information on 14 construction projects. The website features interactive timelines, live video feeds, project budgets and information about the architects working on the projects, Dan Hedman, university spokesperson, said.
Columbus Business First reports that Ohio State has approved a $2.37 billion 5-year capital plan to support Framework 2.0 and the university's strategic plan. It is an historic number for Ohio State as the university delivers on major projects identified in the campus master plan.
As reported by the outlet, classroom and laboratory buildings make up 47% of the new projects, and 39% are for OSU Wexner Medical Center.
“That’s really a healthy balance,” said Jay Kasey, Ohio State's senior vice president in the Office of Administration and Planning.
The Lantern recently wrote about an exciting new project -- a $155.9 million Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Center.
According to the outlet, the construction of the center will include renovations to Hamilton Hall, located at the corner of 10th and Neil avenues, as well as construction of a new wing extending onto 10th Avenue. The new wing will form an enclosure to the space and create a quadrangle for student use as well as special events.
