Slideshow: Biomedical and Materials Engineering Complex Phase 2

Work on the Biomedical and Materials Engineering Complex Phase 2 (BMEC) is nearly halfway complete as crews have made substantial progress over the last several months. A buck hoist has been installed and a platform below it is in place to ensure the safety of everyone on site. 

City of Ohio State Podcast Season 3 Episode 1: Campus Construction

As another outpatient care center gets approved for construction and new academic and research projects break ground, we kick off season 3 of the City of Ohio State Podcast with Kristin Poldemann, the associate vice president of Facilities Design and Construction to talk about current projects across campus. 

Slideshow: Biomedical and Materials Engineering Complex - Phase 2

Construction on the Biomedical and Materials Engineering Complex – Phase 2 is ramping up after beginning in October 2023. Crews are finished with interior abatement and are now focusing on structure and exterior façade demolition. 

As crews work to demolish interior small spaces like elevator pits, they’re using a Brokk, which is a demolition robot that eliminates all need for manual demo work. As safety is always top of mind, this allows a user to stand back and control the robot from nearby. 

In the News: Active Construction Changes Traffic Patterns on Game Days

Fans are back in Ohio Stadium this fall as the Buckeyes make another run toward the College Football Playoffs.

For a winning fan experience, The Ohio State University is encouraging attendees to allow additional time to get in and out of the stadium area as traffic and parking changes may cause delays.

New Traffic Patterns

We all love scarlet and gray, but there’s a sea of orange on campus as Ohio State invests in the future of teaching, learning and research. Major construction projects are changing the way most Buckeyes will navigate campus – so allow extra travel time, be cautious near construction zones, and look out for your fellow Buckeyes. Watch to learn more on what areas to avoid and how to get around safely. READ MORE

Biomedical and Materials Engineering Complex Construction Right on Schedule

Welcoming students and faculty to campus in the fall of 2020, phase one of The Biomedical and Materials Engineering Complex (BMEC)—the Mars G. Fontana Laboratories—will be the new home for two highly-ranked engineering departments. The project brings Biomedical Engineering from west campus to innovate and educate alongside Materials Science and Engineering, enabling both departments to significantly increase their undergrad and graduate student capacity.

In the News: Ohio State kicks off 'historic' $2.4B in construction driven by master plan

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.
