CMSWillowbrook is pleased to announce that the new Soldier Creek Elementary facility — completed in 2014 for Mid-Del Schools — was recently named as the American Subcontractors Association (ASA) Oklahoma Chapter’s 2015 “Project of the Year.” The firm provided pre-bond planning, pre-construction and construction phase services for the completion of the new 900-student facility, while LWPB Architecture served as architect for both Soldier Creek Elementary and the identical Midwest City Elementary.
Soldier Creek was selected from a distinguished field of competitors. Selection criteria for ASA’s Project of the Year distinguishment was based on overall difficulty and uniqueness of the project, successful partnerships created by the project team, sustainability, safety record, and subcontractor recommendation.
Both Soldier Creek and Midwest City Elementary have received previous construction and design accolades including as AGC’s prestigious “Build Oklahoma” award for 2014, Outstanding Project Award from Learning By Design, and Outstanding Design Award by American School & University Magazine.
CMSWillowbrook staff included Angelo Bradford, Project Manager; Ray Trammel and Larry Hudson, Project Superintendents; Justin Lockwood, Project Engineer; Matt Wilcox, Project Accountant, and Tara Hamby, on-site administrator. Lead architects on the project were Lisa Chronister, AIA and Jeff Wegener, AIA of LWPB.
CMSWillowbrook would like to extend special appreciation to Dr. Pam Twidwell, Chief Operations Officer of Mid-Del Schools; Dr. Pam Deering, Superintendent, Mike Bryan, Director of Maintenance & Construction of Mid-Del Schools; and Mr. Larry Stephenson, Director of Security and Safety. Their dedication to the planning, design and construction of these facilities has been the benchmark for excellence, and has created a new standard for educational construction management.
