Nestle QAC Chemical Laboratory

This challenging project involved the renovation and conversion of 17,000 square feet of existing space into chemistry laboratories, office and support areas. Scope included major demolition, slab removal, new foundations, steel, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, controls, specialty casework, fume hoods, and finishes. Extreme care was required to avoid impacting ongoing operations including the construction of multiple safety segregation partitions to protect employees from dust and noise.

In order to maintain a controlled and tempered environment for operations, sophisticated HVAC systems were installed and closely monitored during construction.

Ashland Chemical

This 107,000 square foot, five-story corporate headquarters expansion is connected to and compliments Ashland Chemical’s existing building by a grade level link and an elevated skywalk bridge link at the fourth floor. The building features a corporate resource center and extensive training areas connected with integrated voice/video/data technology.

This facility is located on Ashland’s main campus where their nationally renowned Research and Development laboratories perform polymer application testing.

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.

COSI – Labs In Life

This new 4,800 square-foot exhibit space on the second floor of COSI received custom finishes to provide a futuristic look. The Labs in Life Exhibit provides an educational focus on the physical capabilities of the human body. Three elliptical glass “pods” were constructed for COSI and The Ohio State University and are operated by personnel from The OSU School of Medicine. This project consisted of three labs, two offices, shower room, bathroom, conference area, and public viewing area.

LabCorp (Roche Biomedical Laboratories)

Ruscilli built this 11,500 square foot headquarters and manufacturing addition for Consolidated (now Roche) Biomedical Laboratories, a diagnostic services testing facility. The facility was constructed to FDA specifications. Several years later, Ruscilli was again selected by Roche to construct its 57,000 square foot testing laboratory.

PharmaForce Inc. New Albany

For the fifth time during the past decade, PharmaForce commissioned Ruscilli to meet its facility needs by constructing a new corporate offices, R&D and manufacturing headquarters. This is the most significant project Ruscilli has built for PharmaForce and is the legacy statement for future growth of this fast growing pharmaceutical concern.

The campus style design is situated in the center of a 31-acre parcel recently acquired by PharmaForce located in the new Technology Center of New Albany, Ohio. This 113,000 square foot project consists of a two-story corporate office building, research and development laboratory, a sterile manufacturing facility. The owner incorporated several sustainable design features including water efficient landscaping, building orientation, increased ventilation and day-lighting.

PharmaForce Inc. Sterile Manufacturing Facility, Headquarters, and R&D Facility

Ruscilli managed the design and construction of the last two facilities for Pharmaforce, Inc. – its 20,000 square foot headquarters and R&D facility and its 39,000 square foot Sterile Manufacturing Facility. Ruscilli’s pre-construction and construction teams converted the client’s program requirements into efficient and cost-effective projects that meet local, state, and federal regulations for producing drugs. In addition to the administrative and technical offices, the buildings include Analytical Wet Chemistry, Microbiology, and High Potency Compounding laboratories which produce sterile solutions and suspensions for parenteral and ophthalmic products, utilizing aseptic liquids, lyophilization, and terminal sterilization processes. The manufacturing area includes 4,000 square feet of classified sterile core with Class 10,000 and Class 100 Clean Room Areas.
