Pontifical College Josephinum

Pope John Paul II Education Center This significant undertaking involved the third floor renovation of the Pope John Paul II Education Center to house a new priestly formation center. In so doing, 8,500 square foot of existing space was converted to provide additional housing for seminarians while adding functional space for student services, seminars and events.

Overall scope included new conference rooms, seminar rooms, offices, restrooms, multi-purpose area, and displays of historic artifacts. In addition, new mechanical and electrical systems were added as well as plumbing upgrades to the existing fire suppression system.

St. Turibius Chapel Restoration This project consisted of remodeling the existing chapel including new flooring, mural, marble alter and pedestal, plaster restoration, upgraded lighting, new furnishings, and restoration of nave pews, side chairs, frontal screens, book holders and kneels.


St. Vincent Family Center

This 21,000 square foot building addition included a two-story educational wing, 17 classrooms, board room, new playground, and school bus drop off. In addition, the project included renovations to the cafeteria, corridor and main lobby.

St. Vincent Family Center provides mental health prevention, intervention, and treatment services to children and families in Columbus and throughout the state of Ohio.

Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church

Ruscilli was commissioned to perform the concrete and steel erection for the Parish Life Center.  This 13,000 square foot, two-story recreation and classroom building is nestled in the side of a hill located west of the church.  The building contains classrooms, a parish hall, kitchen, and storage areas.

Ruscilli continued its work for the church in 2010 with the renovation of the sanctuary and a building addition. A complete new alter was included in the project. In addition, Ruscilli completed improvements to the mechanical and electrical systems.

The Presbyterian Church

This project, located in a downtown area, presented a unique challenge for Ruscilli. Creatively working with the church and its neighbors to provide minimal disruption during construction, Ruscilli was able to complete the renovation of the two-story education wing/administration offices including a new pitched roof, new exterior brick, new windows, a three level elevator, and other interior modifications. Also tying in to the existing church and education wing, a new fellowship hall, attached full service kitchen and expanded entry were constructed.

St. Andrews Catholic Church

St. Andrew Catholic Church, Upper Arlington, Ohio, called in Ruscilli to complete a new 35,000 square foot worship facility highlighted by a 70-foot tall bell tower. The church, featuring a vaulted ceiling with decorative wood beams, seats 820 parishioners. Traditional stained glass windows, protected by insulated outer glass, accent the building’s exterior. Upon completion, the former church was converted into classrooms connected to the new sanctuary by an enclosed corridor.

Immaculate Conception Catholic School

Ruscilli was selected by the Parish and Diocese to serve as general contractor for the renovation and expansion of Immaculate Conception Catholic School. This three-phased project, located in Clintonville, offered many significant challenges. For example, 1) the existing facility is located on a tight urban site, 2) the classroom renovations were completed during the summer months in time for use the following school year, 3) the additions occurred while class was in session requiring strict safety requirements for the students, and 4) public relations with the neighboring community were a major concern. This project was completed under budget and within schedule while earning praise by parishioners and neighbors.

Church of the Ascension Catholic Church

The Diocese and Church of the Ascension Catholic Church in Johnstown, Ohio selected Ruscilli to work with their architect in a Design/Assist capacity to design and construct their new facility. The project included master planning for future phases, extensive site construction, and a 16,000 square foot sanctuary and parish hall.

Prince of Peace Lutheran Church

This new 19,744 square foot facility includes a new fellowship hall, classroom space, and administrative offices. Complete audio/video equipment and production needs were also incorporated into the design of this worship facility.
