Renier Blueprint: September 2018 Newsletter

The Renier Blueprint
A Quarterly E-Newsletter, September 2018
Featured Project: Ricart Automotive Car Wash
The Renier team paid homage to Rose Royce by working at the Ricart car wash, yeah.
 

Now that you can’t get that song out of your head, Renier is proud to announce our first project with the Ricart family of dealerships. We’ve recently begun a new car wash addition at the Columbus Mega Mall location to address their growing customer needs.

Ricart is a new and used car dealership, with seven brands on site, situated on the 67-acre Ricart Mega Mall in southeast Columbus.  The Ricart family has been serving the Columbus area since 1953.
 

MPW Industrial Services Private Hangar  

Renier recently completed the much anticipated MPW Industrial Services hangar at John Glenn Columbus International Airport.  It’s just one of the three privately owned hangars at the airport.

The 56,000 square feet two-story facility on the north airfield is owned by MPW, and a portion of it is leased out to a corporate client.  The hangar includes office space and provides direct access to the airport.

View more pictures of this exceptional new hangar here.

Local Waste Services

When Renier began building the new corporate office headquarters for Local Waste Services last year – they began a single project that has since turned into two additional projects there.  As the original 10,000 sq. foot headquarters neared completion, owner Rick Cattran contacted Renier about other additions, specifically a Service Bay addition and a Truck Wash Bay.  The Service Bay addition serves as a maintenance facility for the CNG trucks which require a specialized location for service due to the natural gas component.  The Truck Wash Bay gives Local Waste an economical and effective way to keep their trucks in excellent condition, presenting the best image to their customers.

While the Truck Bay project is still in construction, we couldn’t wait any longer to share this spectacular shot of the completed headquarters! 

 
Albany Business Commons

With a fall completion schedule, the Albany Business Commons features a new satellite office for Licking County Title Office. Renier is building the new retail & office space in western Licking County. It will house between two and five tenants with a total of 9,000 sq. ft. and is situated across from Liberty Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram in Jersey Twp. on Worthington Rd. near Mink Rd. & SR 161.

The Renier Mascot
Some of you may have noticed a cardinal sneaking in to some of our company photos (he’s even been on a magazine cover!). Take a look at this photo; do you see the cardinal? Well, he’s traveled all over the country visiting job sites, been “kidnapped & held hostage” and racked up so many frequent flier miles we’ve lost count! But sadly, he’s never really had a name.

The cardinal has been in the Renier family since 2015 and we need your help to properly name him/her before s/he takes flight again. If your name recommendation gets selected, you will win a $100 gift card to Cameron Mitchell restaurants!  

Submit your name on our Facebook page before October 31, 2018 at 11:59 pm. The winner will be announced in the next Renier Blueprint!
