OSU Advanced Materials Corridor

This undertaking involves the total renovation / replacement of the 50-year old Koffolt, Fontana and Macquigg Laboratory complex totaling 192,000 square feet. The new and renovated spaces include teaching laboratories, research laboratories, lecture halls, classrooms, offices, distance learning, and penthouse space. Because the site is juxtapositioned within the dense central core of the campus and enjoins adjacent buildings, a multi-phase enabling program is also included to support utility, MEP systems, and swing space needs to accommodate classroom operations during construction. Upon completion, the buildings will house the Departments of Materials Science & Engineering and Biomedical Engineering.

OSU Schumaker Student-Athlete Development Center

The new 110,000 square foot Schumaker Student-Athlete Development Complex provides a state-of-the-art facility for nutritional, physical, and psychological development of student-athletes for 33 University teams. The facility includes hydrotherapy, training/taping areas, rehabilitation areas, examination rooms, offices, locker rooms, multi-purpose area, full-service kitchen and dining to accommodate all University athletes. Over 800 student-athletes will lift, condition, train, and rehabilitate injuries in the complex while benefiting from nutritional and mental preparation for peak performance. Located in the heart of the Athletic District and connected to the iconic Woody Hayes Athletic Center, the facility will also serve as the training “hub” for 33 Olympic sport teams.


OSU Marion Science & Engineering Building

This 32,500 square foot Science and Engineering Building, located in the academic core of the Marion campus, includes teaching and research laboratories for Biology, Physics, Earth Sciences, and Engineering. The building also includes space for the Prairie Laboratory, greenhouse, classrooms, offices, and informal study and gathering spaces throughout the building within lobbies and corridors. The building contains contiguous blocks of laboratories that promote teaching and connectivity enhancing student collaboration.


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.


OSU Scott Laboratory

Ruscilli was selected by The Ohio State University to undertake this 240,000 square foot project. During the multi-phase demolition of the existing Robinson Laboratory, new space for the Mechanical Engineering department was constructed. Because Robinson Laboratory was occupied, Ruscilli coordinated the rerouting of all traffic and class locations on this “postage stamp” project.

The new building houses classrooms, instructional computing, research computing, instructional labs for nuclear engineering, gas dynamics, non-equilibrium thermodynamics, experimental mechanics, metrology, manufacturing, triboloby, vibrations, automotive research, nanotechnology and heavy vibrations; departmental offices; meeting spaces and student services.

OSU SciTech Microscopy Characterization Lab/Research Facility

This new 20,000 square foot Microscopy Characterization Laboratory & Research Facility was developed for The Ohio State University Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

The facility houses a number of sophisticated microscopes for the Center for Electron Microscope and Analysis (CEMAS) including several Titan, OSIRIS, Technai, Spirit, ESEM, Quanta, Helios, Magellan, Sirion and Nova microscopes.

University of Findlay Student Life Services & College of Business

This new building complex serves multiple functions under one roof including student life, college of business, bookstore, food services, student services, mail and copy center, and gathering space “hangar”. The configuration and juxtaposition of the building reinforces the newly formed “green” which acts as an extension of the Union to provide a formal connection to the campus.

The Student Life Center encourages social interaction by offering comfortable interior and exterior spaces for various activities. The Central Gathering Place is broken into different zones to support multiple program functions. The Book Store is designed to reflect successful retail planning strategies. The College of Business offers its own unique entry and occupies the entire upper floor including classrooms along an open corridor with clerestory lighting for work sessions and study groups.

OSU Student Academic Services Building & Lane Avenue Parking Garage

This project included a new Student Academic Services Building and a 1500-space parking garage. The Student Academic Services Building relocated core student services functions from Lincoln Tower into a new facility consisting of approximately 71,000 square feet. The services housed in this building include Admissions, Registrar, Financial Aid, Enrollment Services, Fees and Deposits, and Student Loan Disbursements. The Project site was bounded by Neil Avenue, Tuttle Park Place, and Lane Avenue. The corner of Lane Avenue and Tuttle Park Place is a gateway to the Columbus campus. The project design incorporated the new structures into an integrated campus design plan with consideration for the existing recreation center and possible future development.
