This renovation of the former Techneglas building, located in Columbus’ South Side Industrial Corridor, brings affordable, flexible industrial space to organizations involved in warehousing, distribution, manufacturing, wholesaling, data and call centers and a range of other uses.  In order to meet strict public funding deadlines, Ruscilli completed this project in just under four months. TechSouth was awarded the 2009 NAIOP Best Adaptive Re-use or Brownfield Project.

Metatec Corporation

Ruscilli managed design and construction of all three phases of this 204,000 square foot CD-ROM and laser disk information systems catalog fulfillment facility. The complex includes 114,000 square feet of two-story office/operations space combined with 90,000 square feet of production area, including a Class-10 cleanroom for CD-ROM and laser disk fabrication.

Ruscilli also successfully completed Phase II of Metatec’s expansion program. The addition comprised 76,000 square feet.

McGraw Hill Distribution Center

Ruscilli completed this 330,000 square foot distribution facility in only seven months. The building was constructed utilizing a pre-engineered metal building system with load bearing pre-cast concrete exterior walls, super flat floor and advanced conveyer systems.

THK Manufacturing of America

THK, a world leader in linear motion products, completed construction of its 283,000 square foot leading edge manufacturing expansion in Hebron, Ohio.  To expedite occupancy, this design-build project required a “fast-track” approach.  Constructed in 11 months, the THK facility houses 220,000 square feet of manufacturing, 42,000 square feet of office, and 21,000 square feet of warehouse space.

Honda of America Manufacturing, Inc.

Ruscilli was named as Honda of America’s construction manager for its one million square foot automobile manufacturing plant expansion — the “EX” project. This automobile assembly plant expansion project comprised 1,170,000 square feet with a value of $371 million while “wrapping around” 1,000,000 square feet of existing production area.

Of this, 415,000 square feet of the new facility is dedicated to automobile painting production lines for both Honda Accords and Civics. This includes all system feed lines from the various paint component storage tanks and HVAC system used in the painting area to ensure that temperature and humidity are controlled within the guidelines required for proper paint adhesion to metal surfaces.

At the mid-point of the expansion, Ruscilli was also named Construction Manager for Honda’s $59 million, 170,000 square foot Plastics Injection Plant.

During this activity, the productions lines continued uninterrupted. Ruscilli also helped Honda revise existing production lines to accommodate assembly of Honda’s Civic, in addition to the previously produced Accord model.


This new 355,000 square foot distribution center consolidates four existing facilities into one centralized location in order to better serve the needs of its customers.

In addition to warehouse space, the new facility offers 24,000 square feet of office and a 5,000 square foot automobile testing laboratory. The building is composed of conventional structural steel, single ply roof and precast load bearing walls.

Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems designs and manufactures electronics for the automotive industry – including Honda of America Manufacturing.

Tosoh Bioscience & Tosoh SMD

Ruscilli has worked with the Tosoh Corporation on more than one occasion. Most recently an addition was completed for the TOSOH Bioscience division which relocated from California. This 27,000 square foot warehouse addition to an existing facility includes 4,000 square feet of office space. The warehouse includes a receiving/shipping area with five dock doors, a wash down bay and approximately 1,200 square feet of refrigerated storage space. The exterior skin is load bearing masonry to match the existing structure with an expandable end wall for future expansion. Tosoh S.M.D. retained Ruscilli to provide design and construction management for both phases of this 218,000 square foot office and manufacturing headquarters in Grove City, Ohio. The facility manufactures ultra-thin films used within the micro processing industry. It is one of the first process manufacturing facilities in the United States to use “Focused Factory” concepts in design and construction.

This 205,000 square foot renovation turned an existing warehouse into an energy efficient office and distribution building. While gaining the efficiency of a LEED® Gold certified project, the new building also gained the status of becoming a Level One Emergency facility. This project obtained LEED® points for water efficient landscaping, construction waste management, low VOC materials, and several other features.
