    This 13,000 sf fire station is ready to serve the community thanks to the efficient project management of Robertson Construction. JBA Architects designed the project.

    This design/build project involved the renovation of a 10,000 sf church into modern medical offices for Robertson & Abad Family Medicine in Newark, Ohio.

    Construction of the Horton Building at the Central Ohio Aerospace and Technology Center relies on local general contractor, Robertson, and other local subs to get the job done. Read the story from the Newark Advocate. >>

    Watch the constuction process in this photo slideshow of new Griggs Reservoir Boathouse.

    This 12,200 sf, $3.2 million, state-of-the-art higher education building located in Logan, Ohio, is heated and cooled by 26 geothermal wells and includes a fuel cell, natural gas compressor and refueling station, vegetative roof, 21kw photovoltaic array, and a wind generator. Robertson Construction acted as general contractor on the project while DesignGroup, Inc. designed the facility.  

    The site improvement and beautification project on the Chillicothe campus of Ohio University consisted of a new storm system, site concrete, brick pavers, monument signs, handicapped ramps, amphitheater, landscaping and paving.

    Robertson Construction worked as the lead contractor on this project with Wandel & Schnell Architects. The 18,000 sf renovation included two libraries, four public restrooms and two locker rooms on the campus of Ohio University, Lancaster.

    This project consisting of the addition of 51,000 sf and renovation of 37,000 sf for the Eastland-Fairfield Career & Technical Schools in Carroll, Ohio was completed by Robertson in conjunction with architects, SHP Leading Design.  

    Just in time for the new school year, Rosecrans Elementary School was dedicated August 23, 2010. The 60,000 sf academic institution was constructed on a five acre parcel in Sunbury, Ohio. Robertson was general contractor on the project with Fanning Howey Associates, Inc. as architects. Read the story from the Sunbury News.

    This 36,000 sf renovation on the campus of Ohio University, Zanesville consisted of the renovation of classrooms and replacement of the entire building window system. Robertson collaborated with Feinknopf Macioce Shappa Architects, Inc.

    The 160,000 sf, three-story new home to the Zanesville Blue Devils features a 18,000 sf gym and adjacent auditorium. Construction of the new building required 20’ deep excavation of the hillside with 9,000 yards of rock removed. Robertson acted as general contractor for this project designed by Stubbs, Addis, Schappa, McDonald.

    For Llanfair Retirement Community in Cincinnati, a new Wellness Center and Chapel required more than promises of meeting a deadline. The facility remained open during renovations and the residents required unfettered access to their rooms. Robertson ensured that this 8,500 sf, $1,600,000 addition and renovation went smoothly, that the residents were inconvenienced as little as possible, and that the project still finished on time and on budget. JMM Architects designed the project.

    The 8,400 sf location, built by Robertson Construction, creates the warm, inviting feeling of home with an open and airy design, high-end finishes, beautiful wood trim and a spiral staircase with white-painted spindles that match the pillars leading into the conference room.

    Robertson completed two new builds for the Fairfield Union Local School District—Bremen and Pleasantville Elementary Schools. Each 55,000 sf school was completed on time and on budget. Burgess & Niple, Ltd acted as architects on the projects.
