The Ohio State University is requesting interested firms to submit qualifications to provide independent design phase and construction phase commissioning services as a Commissioning Agent (CxA) for the Newton Hall Renovation and Addition. The CxA will contract directly with the University and represent Ohio State Facilities Design and Construction. The CxA will be independent of other members of the design and construction teams. Newton Hall is located on the Ohio State University Columbus Campus at the corner of West Ninth Avenue and Neil Avenue. This corner marks the gateway to campus from the south transitioning from large historic urban homes to Academic Main Street, connecting Health and Sciences District, South Residential District and landmarks like Mirror Lake, Thompson Library and the Oval. The College of Nursing has been educating nurses since its founding in 1914 and has occupied Newton Hall since it was built in 1967. The College of Nursing is currently the country’s top rated public college for graduate programs, ranked 5th by U.S. News & World Report and has increased enrollment almost 60% in the past six years. This project will reinforce the college’s core goals to produce the highest caliber nurses, leaders and health professionals and transform healthcare to positively impact and sustain wellness through transdisciplinary and innovative education, research and evidence based clinical practice. The project scope includes building a multi-story 40,000 GSF addition to the south of Newton Hall that includes classrooms, commons spaces, and offices. Renovations in the existing Newton Hall include a health and wellness clinic and fitness center comprising roughly of 7,000 GSF. The project is currently beginning Schematic Design.
