OKC Real Estate Briefs: September 12, 2003


Maile, Matt, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Construction of the new federal building in midtown Oklahoma City is on schedule for completion in November, the project manager for the development said this week.

Tim Thury, project manager with the General Services Administration's regional office in Fort Worth, said Wednesday the project is about 85 percent completed. The building will be finished and ready for occupancy in November, he said.

We wanted it to be done in the fall, he said. Right now, we've already got the building 100 percent leased out.

Construction of the 179,000-square-foot, four-story federal building began in November 2001. The building, which is bounded by NW Sixth and Eighth streets and by Harvey and Hudson avenues, will actually be three-and-one-half stories above grade and one-half- story below grade.

The architect for the federal campus building is Ross Barney + Jankowski of Chicago. Heery International of Houston is the construction manager and Flintco Construction is the general contractor.

The building will house the offices of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services-Indian Health Services, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Equal Opportunity Commission, the Food and Drug Administration and the Small Business Administration. Also in the building will be offices of the U.S. Army recruiting battalion, Marine Corps recruiting headquarters, the U.S. Military Entrance Processing Command and branches of two local credit unions - the Federal Employees Credit Union and the U.S. Employees Credit Union.

Our new Tulsa office and the projects we have pending here represent the next step for our company, Hale said. Tulsa has an innovative, forward-thinking mindset that makes it the perfect match for the Gardner Tanenbaum Group.

Hale, who graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in construction engineering technology, has worked in Tulsa's construction industry since the late 1970s. He is a former vice president and group manager of The Benham Group and also was regional president at Crossland Construction Co.

Hale said he wants to duplicate in Tulsa the level of success the company has enjoyed in Oklahoma City. As Gardner Property Interests, GTG said it has been successful in the metro, particularly with industrial development, over the last seven years.

The Benham Cos.

Senior executives of The Benham Cos., with the help of three Oklahoma private equity investor groups, have bought the company back from London-based Atkins, the Oklahoma City firm said.

The firm - known as Atkins Americas following its purchase by Atkins in January 2000 - will revert to the Benham name, after its founder, Webster Lance Benham, who established Benham Engineering in Oklahoma City in 1909. …
