Ground broken on new Ingenuity Center
Posted on: 04/10/2013
By  Andy Rex
A new building will soon be going up just off State Route 7 in Reno.
 
Its a 35,000 square foot ingenuity center, operated by the Southeastern Ohio Port Authority.  When completed, the $2.2 million project will provide 30,000 square feet for manufacturing and testing and 5,000 square feet of office space. 

What we have here is the culmination of two or three years of work in recognition of the need to have physical space to house the emerging technological industries," says Southeastern Ohio Port Authority Director Terry Tamburini.  "Within this innovative culture in Washington County, its for both the temperature-controlled cabinetry industry and the emerging oil and gas industry.
 
Tamburini says there was a need for a mid-sized building designed to attract innovative companies to the area.  He credits former director Mike Jacoby for originating the project while he was here.

Hes the one who worked with the owner-developer of the property several years ago," Tamburini says.  "Its a public-private partnership.  The infrastructure was provided by the state, and the private sector came up with the land.  Thats how it came about.  We were to get a portion of it to develop this ingenuity center.
 
The project is scheduled to be completed sometime later this year.
