Columbus Academy, a college-preparatory institution located in Gahanna, is undergoing a major $14 million renovation. By fall 2016, students will learn in a state-of-the-art environment that has been either partially upgraded or built fresh from the ground up. The campus renovation includes remodeling to administrative space, classrooms, and performance art areas, as well as major modifications to common areas including the dining hall, library, and courtyard. The scope of work for the transformation of the Columbus Academy Campus involves:
- Wing additions on both sides for the Middle and Upper School
- Dining Hall addition and expansion
that will include improved space for special events and additional seating for lunches
- Art studio addition in Morris Hall
- Van Syckel Hall Addition on its north end that will allow for reconfigurations of distinct spaces for Grades 6-8
As the project’s electrical contractor, our team is responsible for all LED high-efficiency lighting, as well as a major repositioning of all utilities in the Lazarus courtyard, which required the complex relocation of the school’s primary duct bank. In an effort to support the campus’ upgraded IT infrastructure, Mid-City is also building out a completely new server room. Other major construction renovations our team is building out include numerous classrooms in both the upper and lower schools as well.
The Columbus Academy Renovation is scheduled to complete in September 2016. As the project’s electrical contractor, we are proud to be partnering on a project that will revolutionize the Columbus Academy campus’ for its 1,100 students.
