Originally constructed in 1977, the Okmulgee Readiness Center was at the end of its life cycle. After a multi-year evaluation process, it was determined that a renovation was the best option for the facility and work began to outfit this building to better support the needs of the Oklahoma National Guard 777th Aviation Support Battalion. The building received a complete interior and exterior face lift including: new TPO roofing system, new mechanical, HVAC building controls, plumbing, fire suppression and electrical systems. The building’s exterior reflects the current Oklahoma Military Department stylings, including a stacked stone and EFIS façade. In addition, a new mezzanine was installed inside the existing structure, as well as classroom-style training spaces. OMD will now have adequate room for vehicles and equipment. This new site work was extensive and involved several locations of heavy vehicle traffic, storage and training.
