Weokie Credit Union Selects Clayco For Operations Center Project
St. Louis, MO (February 16, 2010)
Clayco Inc. was recently named design-builder for the new 22,000-square-foot operations center for WEOKIE Credit Union.
Located in Oklahoma City, Okla., the financial facility will house the credit union’s Mortgage Servicing, Accounting, Collections, Marketing and Call Center. Construction of the new operations center will begin in March 2010 with an anticipated completion in November 2010.
“The new operations center is our fourth project in the Oklahoma City area for WEOKIE Credit Union. The goal of the team was to create a campus environment for the Credit Union that brings together all of its business operations in order to continue to provide first-class service for its members today and into the future,” said Paul Barrath, Business Unit Leader for Financial Facilities for Clayco. “Employing tilt-up and steel framing techniques, the two-story structure will be built on WEOKIE’s main campus. The new facility will integrate all operational aspects of the Credit Union in one location; plus the building will provide additional capacity for the continued growth of the financial institution. In addition to added department space, the new facility will house additional conference rooms to enhance business operations and a fitness center for the employees.”
Clayco’s project team, including Barrath and project manager Joe Hartz, will be joined by Forum Studio’s team of architects and interior designers, working as a team with WEOKIE Credit Union. The project’s structural engineer is Alper Audi Inc., the civil engineer is Stock & Associates Consulting Engineers Inc., and the mechanical/electrical engineer is G & W Engineering Corporation.
