The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center continues to expand its care with a new, large outpatient care facility planned for Hamilton Road and SR 161 in northeast Columbus. The site joins outpatient care expansion plans in Dublin and Powell. The comprehensive facilities are part of a new suburban outpatient care program that supports growth in the region and excellence in academic health care. At approximately 250,000 square feet, the $137.9 million project will include ambulatory surgery, endoscopy, primary care, specialty medical and surgical clinics and related support space.
The Interdisciplinary Research Facility envisions an innovative and modern environment to serve multiple disciplines. The project is an anchor for Ohio State’s future West Campus Innovation District and will house approximately 305,000 new square feet. Renderings provide a sneak-peek at the proposed five-story laboratory building. The project advances the university’s strategic plan, and Framework 2.0 , by serving multiple research disciplines, including biomedical, life sciences, engineering and environmental sciences, among others. In addition, two floors will be dedicated to The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center including its new Pelotonia Institute...
The Ohio State University will seek Board of Trustees approval this week for construction of the Energy Advancement and Innovation Center located within the West Campus Innovation District. The building is centered on finding innovative solutions for energy reduction and will allow researchers to develop, demonstrate and deploy innovations in sustainable building design and performance.
“Ohio State is uniquely positioned to bring together researchers from a variety of backgrounds who are committed to a more sustainable future,” said Ohio State President Kristina M. Johnson. “This facility will advance the great work already happening at...
Columbus Business First recently wrote about the university seeking Board of Trustees approval this week for Cannon Drive Phase II.
Cannon Drive Phase II will straighten the road near Woody Hayes Drive but Cannon Drive itself will largely remain at its current elevation. The $57 million project is focused on achieving a certified levee and flood protection. The levee will be constructed to the west between the roadway and the river and will provide 500-year flood protection.
Design will continue through 2022 with construction (including any demolition) to begin in 2023. Phase I was completed in December...
The Optometry Clinic and Health Sciences Faculty Office Building opened in November 2020. The $35.9 million project, located at W. 11th Ave and Neil Ave, constructed approximately 106,000 GSF for optometry clinics, retail, faculty offices and support spaces. It is a key enabling project for the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Center .

The Mars G. Fontana Laboratories is phase I of the Biomedical and Materials Engineering Complex. The building opened in August 2020 and aligns with Framework 2.0 and the university’s strategic plan, by enhancing both teaching and learning through improved facilities and support space. The $59.1 million Mars G. Fontana Laboratories renovated the former Koffolt Lab and Fontana Lab to create additional research, classroom and office space. It houses the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Materials Sciences and Engineering. The project included a complete renovation in Koffolt and Fontana, while a new 20,000 square foot addition...
Ohio State is committed to sustainability and recently released a plan to reduce its carbon emissions by 55% by 2030. To advance these efforts, the university sought and recently obtained approval from the Ohio Power Siting Board to build a Combined Heat and Power Plant (CHP) that will provide a new source of heat and electricity to campus via a District Heating and Cooling Loop (DHC).
The CHP is expected to cut carbon emissions by more than 30% in its first full year of operation and is the university’s largest singular action to achieve emissions reductions.
The Optometry Clinic and Health Sciences Faculty Office Building, located at the southwest corner of W. 11th Avenue and Neil Avenue, will include optometry clinics, retail, faculty offices and support spaces. It is scheduled to open in November 2020.
As reported by Columbus Underground , the Ohio Power Siting Board has approved a proposal from The Ohio State University to build a combined heat and power plant on its main campus.
The project will be located on at the northeast corner of Tharp Street and Herrick Drive. "We are pleased with the Ohio Power Siting Board’s decision," university spokesperson Dan Hedman told the outlet. "This is positive news as the Combined Heat and Power Plant will support the campus core and is expected to cut carbon emissions by more than 30% in its first full year of operations."...
As reported by The Lantern, the Ohio Power Siting Board approved the construction, operation and maintenance of a natural-gas power plant Thursday, September 17. The Combined Heat and Power Plant is a $278 million project.
University spokesperson Dan Hedman told The Lantern that the plant will cut carbon emissions by more than 30 percent in its first year of operation while providing energy-efficient electricity, heating and cooling to Ohio State’s campus.
