Arrowhead completed a prime contract with the Chickasaw Nation for design-bid-build new construction of a 25,350 square-foot state-of-the-art wellness center located in Ada, OK. Primary features of the facility include a free weight area, aerobic studio, large cardio room, separate exercise areas for adults and children, a hydration area, men’s and women’s locker rooms, an elevated walking track, a conference room and office space. In addition, a state-of-the-art interactive Prama studio, which is cutting edge in the health and fitness industry, was installed. This interactive system, created by Pavigym, combines lights and music to create an immersive and fun exercise experience. At the time of construction, only two other facilities in the United States featured this system, and the Ada Wellness Center was the first in Oklahoma. Initial site construction activities required the removal of various construction debris, including concrete rubble, rebar, and general waste. Several thousand tons of soil were imported to the site, and site fill and compaction operations established necessary grade elevations. New utilities were installed to the building, tying into the existing city utilities. This included telephone and data lines, as well as new below-grade fiber optic lines. The building frame was constructed of structural steel. The building envelope consisted of a metal panel system that was installed at the entrance, transitioning into metal siding. Interior elements included installation and finishing of drywall throughout the building; all new millwork; mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems; LVT flooring; carpet and painting completed to the design specifications.
The Delaware Child Development Center in Owasso, OK, is an approximately 14,100 square-foot ground up construction project for child development within the Delaware Nation of Oklahoma. Arrowhead was selected as a CMaR to help design and build this fast-track project. The facility features a children’s activity area, infant and toddler classrooms, early childhood and preschool classrooms, full service kitchen, and outdoor play space. The exterior is comprised of fiber cement board and batten siding, corrugated metal panels, storefront glazing, and metal R-panel roof.
The WW Hastings Hospital is a 152K square-foot healthcare facility operated by the Cherokee Nation. Originally an Indian Health Service Hospital, WW Hastings opened in 1936 on what has since been annexed into a local State University Campus. Located in Tahlequah, OK, the hospital serves a large Native American population in Northeast Oklahoma. In April of 2021, Arrowhead was awarded a bid-build construction contract to provide renovation services for a 16K sq. ft. Urgent Care Department remodel. The entire work area was located within the footprint of the building and tied into existing MEP systems and structural components. Arrowhead was provided with 100% design documents at project startup and worked closely with Designer of Record to resolve issues and implement minor changes throughout the project. The initial SOW required completed demolition of the existing Pediatrics Department, including exam rooms, treatment rooms and administrative office space. Renovations included construction of 14 negative pressure examination rooms; two nurse stations; a patient waiting area; an IT room; an electrical control room; a clean storage area; new offices for the medical director and nursing manager; a staff lounge; and four new restrooms. Additional features included medical gas piping to each examination room; new millwork; an overhead coiling door; interior finishes and fire alarms/sprinkler; low voltage cabling and MEP equipment; and electrical devices. The project was completed adjacent to ongoing hospital operations, requiring comprehensive dust control measures and compliance with infectious control guidelines. Arrowhead maintained open communication with our client through the project to provide progress updates and convey upcoming activities.
