When Local Waste Services selected Renier Construction to build a new corporate office they both knew just where to turn: Oscar the Grouch, the expert in trash. The new facility will replace the 50-year old current headquarters on the same property in south Columbus. The construction process began in mid-April and is expected to wrap up in late October. The 10,000 s.f. building features a large painting of the state of Ohio on the exterior, a homage to the company's deep-rooted history in the Buckeye state. The building is a breath of fresh air for employees and visitors, and Oscar doesn't mind his new digs either.

In less than eight months the project was complete, but you can see the entire construction process in just over a minute.

Renier's values align closely with our partner, Jezerinac Geers & Associates, which is one of the reasons our long-term relationship works so well. Co-Founder Richard Geers highlights why they choose Renier again and again for their construction needs.
“We expanded rapidly and changed design of the building multiple times during the process. Renier never flinched. As we grow, we continue to rely on Renier.”
“Renier used their creativity in our building. There is no wasted space, it’s very inviting and they were able to build at or below budget.”
“I have found Renier to care about completion of each project within the agreed upon timeframe and budget. Even more so, I have found them to genuinely care about the job as if it were their own.”
“Renier provided a comprehensive budget for us up front and handled everything from design to permitting to construction and closeout. Our project was completed on schedule as they promised.”
“We needed more space and didn’t have time to waste. Renier completed our expansion in four months. Their disciplined approach saved our retail season.”
“I’d built new offices twice before and my experience with Renier was by far the best.”
