Columbus 2020 Partnership

JobsOhio selected Ruscilli Construction to provide construction management services for the expansion and renovation of their 11,000sf office on the 15th Floor of the Huntington Center in downtown Columbus, OH. The work included upgrades and replacements of finishes throughout the space, as well as the installation of new walls, ceilings, lighting, HVAC, and fire protection systems.

All work was completed after hours so as not to impact the existing operations of this 100% occupied space. In addition, coordination with the building management team was critical to the efficient scheduling of material delivery and trash removal throughout the project.

AEP Transmission Office

Phase I

American Electric Power selected Ruscilli to construct its new 196,000sf Transmission Office Building in New Albany, Ohio. This project consisted of office space for 700 people (50 offices and 650 cubicles), full-service cafeteria, exercise facility, locker and shower rooms, first floor conference center, restrooms, breakrooms, meeting space, and loading dock with storage. The building is LEED® Certified.

Phase II

American Electric Power once again selected Ruscilli as its construction partner. Phase II of the AEP Transmission Office complex consists of a three-story, 80,000sf office building with connector to the existing office from Phase I. Scope of work includes office space, break areas, cafe, meeting rooms, parking, and storm retention areas. The building is LEED® Certified.

Lakehurst Innovation Campus

This project involved updating and refreshing the outdated site into a vibrant workplace campus that will attract new tenants and workers.

New opportunities for outdoor areas for working, eating or taking a break were created to allow for flexibility for employees to work in areas other than at their desk.

The project created a more town center feel to the campus, providing amenities that are in demand – flexible working areas, dining options, fitness center and collaboration spaces. The design is inviting and people-friendly and looks to allow people to experience the space instead of just passing through it.

Huntington Center

Ruscilli Construction completed the renovation and retrofit of multiple areas within the Huntington Center, located in Downtown Columbus at 41 South High Street. Areas include the Business Conference and Entertainment Centers, as well as a Rooftop Entertainment Area. A “Live” garden also runs throughout the main areas, including along the side of the prominent lobby staircase.

Heartland Bank Corporate Headquarters

The new Heartland Bank Corporate Headquarters will consist of a 60,000 square foot two-story facility located on a six (6) acre site, adjacent to the Whitehall Community Park. In addition to housing Heartland’s corporate associates, this facility will also include space for the Ohio Title Company and will be the home to a new Heartland Bank branch which will include the convenience of a drive-up ATM and Remote Teller station.

Heartland plans to host many community events in the multiple community rooms that have the ability to open into a large banquet hall. Just outside of these community rooms is a large terrace that overlooks the new rain garden and city park.

The building itself will be constructed of brick and steel with several reclaimed barn wood features throughout. The project is a cornerstone to the new Hamilton Road gateway to Whitehall.

Worthington Industries

905 Building:

This project involved the renovation and retrofit of nearly 50,000sf of existing office space at Worthington Industries’ 905 Building.

A new fitness center was also integrated into the overall project.


This headquarter building renovation project took place in two phases. The executive 3rd floor as well as a portion of the 1st and 2nd floor remained occupied throughout construction. The building underwent a transition into the open office concept with a modern design creating ease of communication. A stately front entrance canopy was added while renovating the lobby space.

IT Building:

This project involved a complete renovation of a three-story, 23,000sf building on Worthington Industries’ campus. The work includes demolition of exterior concrete patio and interior ceilings, floors and walls. The work scope included ceilings, doors/ frames/hardware, flooring, lunch and break rooms, office space, interior glazing, and exterior patio. The renovated building will be occupied by the IT Department.
