The Ohio State University Medical Center Cancer and Critical Care Tower

osu medical

Midwest Division was recently awarded a contract for the fabrication and erection of structural steel, metal deck and metal stairs for the new twenty (20) story OSU Medical Center Cancer and Critical Care Tower Project in Columbus, Ohio. The 11,000 ton structure will be erected with two (2) tower cranes working intermittent first and second shift erection to meet the aggressive project schedule. Once complete, the new structure will serve to expand the campus’ current capacity for patient care and increase the overall patient experience by housing many critical medical components all under one roof. Shortly after Cives was awarded this work, OSU was named the recipient of a $100 million grant by the Health Resources and Services Administration to expand the current building plans to include a Radiation and Oncology Department within the overall project vision. Cives and the other members of the construction team, including Turner-Bovis, Thornton-Tomasetti and HOK Architects, have tackled the challenge of incorporating the requirements of this additional space into the structure mere weeks before the start of erection with the team goal of minimizing overall project schedule impacts while still delivering … a job well done.
