Danis' new Grandview office

Invigorating — that’s the word Dustin Rohrbach, vice president and general manager of Danis Construction’s Columbus office, uses to describe the company’s new space. Whether speaking in a meeting or rolling out new ideas, the office was designed to be inspiring, and that may be easy given the Danis team designed it themselves.

Serving OhioHealth, Athena Health Care Systems, L Brands, Cardinal Health, and more, if you’ve traveled around central Ohio and beyond, it’s likely that you’ve seen a project of Danis Construction. Founded in 1916, the company is headquartered in Dayton with five locations in Ohio, North Carolina and Florida and has around 100 employees in its Columbus office.

Formerly located at 2715 Tuller Parkway in Dublin for three decades, Danis Construction moved to its new location at 777 Goodale Blvd. Suite 100 in Grandview to satisfy the needs of the growing business, but much of the desire to move was centered around providing a prime space for the team to thrive.

“We've created as much of a healthy environment here as we can,” Rohrbach says. “We needed a space that would really speak our message and fit our brand when it came to recruiting both in the personnel and moving our business forward.”

With the help of M+A Architects, Danis Construction created the new office to add an abundance of natural light, a major difference from the last office, in an effort to foster a joyful environment. The space is also filled with new furniture, designed to give the team the option to stand or sit while working, a cafe, and a fitness facility, Rohrbach says.

Danis Construction has seen a rapid increase in request for proposals, and the new space reflects just that. The space offers an increased level of sophistication with detailed final touches, a board room for proposals, and high-top tables perfect for rolling out drawings of upcoming projects.

“We feel as though the market is taking off, and we're excited to be a part of it,” Rohrbach says. “It was a bit of a leap of faith for us to move. … We're pretty excited about what the marketplace will yield and how our business and our office is going to fit in.”
