Tri County Tech serves residents in the northeast Oklahoma counties of Washington, Nowata and Osage, Oklahoma with over 600 full time students. The total cost of the new Student Center/Networking Addition & Remodel was $1,047,000, and the funding for the project was allocated from the school’s budget.
The project included the demolition of the old student center. This entailed removing and replacing exterior brick veneer entry columns, landscape, and interior walls, finishes, interior brick veneer/columns, ceilings, lighting, handicap ramp, and stairs that were built back in the early 1980s by McAnaw Construction and remodeled in 2017-2018 by McAnaw Construction almost 38 years later.
Construction started in the middle of 2017, which included the interior remodel and exterior site work on the property, all while keeping the existing school building open until the new Student Center was complete.
The exterior has aluminum storefront doors and windows, and aluminum windows that were cut in on the north side of the facility, brick veneer and a single ply membrane roof. The interior has faculty offices, faculty break room, restroom partitions, metal studs and drywall with wood planks and aluminum storefront doors/window partitions at the offices.
The interior itself gives a sense of openness due to multiple glass doors and large glass windows, and pendant linear LED lighting. Ornamental railings, and carpet tile floor patterns, along with large vinyl tile thru-out the facility provide contrast and visibility.
Painted ceilings and soffits along with wood planks cover walls for durability and contrasting design. When you enter the student center there is a new reception desk and seating area for the students, along with a raised floor area with a new open office system adjacent to the main entry for faculty.
The new networking area included a new state-of-the art seating area for students to be able to sit with their laptops and work on their studies with full internet access.
This project is just one of the many interior remodels that KKT Architects and McAnaw Construction have done with Tri County Technology Center over the last several years. By updating the facility to meet today’s technology standards and modernize the environment, the students are giving the faculty a revitalized sense of accomplishment.
Overall, the project was a great success for Tri County Technology Center faculty and students.
