About Columbia Gas of Ohio Building

Strategically situated overlooking the Scioto River and Bicentennial Park, the Columbia Gas Distribution Company's building involved the construction of a 14-story, 257,000 sq.ft. corporate headquarters building with interior design, and the rehabilitation of an existing 390-space parking garage located adjacent to the site. The dramatic design followed a goal of the company of providing views of the river to all members of the staff and minimizing offices along the perimeter. The building lobby features travertine marble on the floors and walls with landscaped seating and planting areas integrated into the design. One entire floor is dedicated to food service with a large cafeteria for the office staff, private dining areas for meetings and an executive dining area with an outdoor terrace. The headquarters building also includes training and computer facilities. Throughout the planning of the facility, flexibility of space was the governing principal of design. All enclosed offices were constructed of demountable partitions to further add to the flexibility of the building. The use of an office furniture system significantly increased the work space for each employee and rapidly adjusts to changes within each department.
