A unique campus with a subtle nod to the great state of Ohio. The anchor building in the new campus is the shape of an “H”. In combination with the two parking structures flanking the campus buildings on the East side of Yard Street, the campus effectively spells out O-H-I-O.
By consolidating multiple office locations into a single community, the Grandview Yard Campus allows Nationwide to efficiently house their business units within an environment that reflects the 21st century workplace and is attractive to their valued associates. At 750,000 square feet, the campus hosts 4,000 employees in the flagship building ‘H’ as well as other adjoining office buildings. Campus amenities include a fitness and wellness center, a bank, a food market featuring local menus, a cafe, and covered parking. The project design team, who are all now at The Columbus Architectural Studio, created an office environment that solved the client’s challenges for different workplace and collaboration needs as well as integrating the amenities to support employee wellness initiatives. The environment created fosters employee retention and attraction. The campus is part of the first LEED-ND pre-certified Silver neighborhood in Ohio, all documented by members at The Studio.
