Greater Columbus Convention Center Grand Opening

Last week we celebrated the grand opening of the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Over the last five years, the Convention Center has undergone a major transformation.

A Note to Young Professionals from Bob Loversidge

I feel YOUNG today! Sure, the arthritis in my spine is making me walk like an old man, but last evening, at McFerson Commons (Arch Park), in front of the reconstructed and twice-moved Union Station Arch, Nancy Recchie, Franklin Conaway, Jeff Darbee and I re-lived, to a Columbus Landmarks audience, the now-40-year-old story of how we (and others) stopped the surprise Friday night demolition of the Daniel Burnham designed terra cotta arcade with a midnight temporary restraining order (the first […]

Bowling Green State University New Greek Housing Exterior

BGSU Greek Housing exceeds LEED goals!

When Bowling Green State University asked us to help them replace all of their Greek housing with new townhouses, we all agreed from the start that one of the goals for this project was that it be environmentally friendly. Along with CBT and Elford Construction, we strove to incorporate as many environmentally conscious materials and practices as possible. Upon completion, we hoped to achieve a LEED Silver certification, but we couldn’t have been happier when we got the news that […]
