Bringing Together The Power Of History With The Skill Of Talented Construction
The Greenwood Rising Black Wall Street History Center is the culmination of 11,000 square feet of exhibit space and 100 years of history. This project brought together the power of history with the skill of talented construction through structural steel, renowned techniques, and intricate detail.
This project faced many challenges, including meeting the 100th anniversary in a tight time frame. Limited building materials and continuous delays challenged us to develop innovative ways to surpass goals and exceed expectations.
Due to the location, additional safety hazards were at the forefront of every decision. This construction site is in the heart of Tulsa’s downtown area, so there were power lines and traffic to account for. Cranes were used to lift 95% of erecting panels safely. The team conducted weekly virtual OAC meetings with architects, engineers, owners, and subcontractors and met 2-3 times per week when necessary.
Overall, this project team was committed to delivering on the construction specifications and respecting Tulsa’s history.
