Nationwide Insurance

Dublin, Ohio

This 7-story, 400,000-sft commercial office building allowed facility upgrades for a major US insurance and financial services company. The $35 million building is a stately structure, clad with precast-concrete spandrels interwoven with tinted-glass curtain walls. The central core of the building includes six elevators and one stair, with additional stairs at each end of the building to meet code-mandated egress requirements. A rooftop penthouse, clad in an economical lightweight EIFS painted to match the precast-concrete spandrels, contains the elevator and HVAC equipment. Designed for economical construction, this structure was framed with structural steel columns, steel joists, joist girders, and composite metal decking with lightweight concrete.
