Area construction firm awarded contracts for Columbus projects

An area construction firm will be awarded contracts for projects in Columbus.

Following a vote by Columbus City Council Monday, Thomas & Marker Construction will be awarded over $19 million in contracts for a new crime lab for the Columbus Police Division and replacement of Columbus’s busiest fire station.

The new crime lab will cost $11.2 million and join the Columbus Police Division’s $11.8 million property room on Woodrow Avenue, which Thomas & Marker successfully completed in late 2012.

The existing crime lab is on leased space on Ohio State University’s campus. As the city’s population has increased, so has the amount of evidence it has to process, city officials said. The lab processes DNA samples, alcohol and drug toxicology samples, fingerprints, and other forensic evidence collected by officers at a crime scene.

The $8.2 million Fire Station No. 2 (rendering pictured) services the Downtown area, mainly south of Broad Street. In 2012, Station No. 2 firefighters and medics made about 19,500 runs, about 3,000 more than any other station in the city.

“We have enjoyed a strong partnership with the City of Columbus”, stated Firm President Randy Marker, adding that the firm is currently completing the City’s Traffic Control Center, a 112 bed-$12 million-senior living facility in Dublin, their 13th Raising Canes Chicken Fingers restaurant, as well as other projects.
