Ruscilli was selected by The Ohio State University to undertake this 240,000 sf 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, tribology, vibrations, automotive research, nanotechnology, and heavy vibrations, departmental offices, meeting spaces and student services.
