CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT AGENCY

May 31, 2013, one of the largest tornados to hit the State of Oklahoma, made its way through the Canadian Valley Technology Center, El Reno Campus.  This tornado was 2.6 miles wide with 295 mph winds, and was registered as an F5.    This tornado severely damaged nine of the buildings on campus.  Approximately 50% of the existing structure was salvageable for the reconstruction.  CMSWillowbrook, Inc. was there with Canadian Valley as the stormed passed helping assess the damage as well as helping the school relocate classrooms and technology to other facilities in order to start school in August. 

Canadian Valley Officially broke ground on November 6, 2014 to start the rebuilding of the El Reno Campus.  As Dr. Winters, Superintendent/CEO stated “Building the Future and Preserving Our Past”, with that said CMSWillowbrook, Inc. and MA+ Architecture, LLC started construction of Building 200.  This project was one of only two buildings on the entire campus that was not totally destroyed. The only remaining parts to this building were the slab, steel columns and roof structure. The project consists of new district administration offices, boardroom, safe room/break room and adult only classes such as practical nursing and their PIVOT program. The project was a fast track project and was completed in April 2015. 

The second building that had salvageable structure was Building 100.  This upgraded building consists of over 230,000 square feet of new administrative offices, new event center, new shops for welding, auto body, auto service, HVAC, service careers, electrical and construction trades, diesel technology, and precision machining.  In addition new classroom learning environments for cosmetology, computer systems, practical nursing, health careers, graphic design, business office and medical office were created with state of the art tools and technology. A new child development center and five multi-purpose tornado safe rooms for 1300 people are also a part of this expansive project.  The four storm shelters in Building 100 are approximately 5,700 square feet of usable space and add to the extra security this campus will use in any storm season.

Construction on campus will be complete by the end of year 2016. and as Bill Bradley Assistant Superintendent stated after the storm “We will once again see our parking lots filled, and we are looking forward to that day,”.
