Stava Building Corporation Honored For 129th and Pine Project

For nearly 30 years, the Stava Building Corporation has been synonymous with Tulsa Commercial Construction excellence.

The prominent Tulsa commercial construction company, which will turn 30 in 2018, was recently recognized for its exemplary work during the 2017 Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) Of Oklahoma Excellence in Construction Awards ceremony.

The Stava Building Corporation’s work on a Tulsa project located at N. 129th E. Avenue and Pine Street took home honors for Pre-Engineered Building between $2 to $10 million category in General Contracting and Construction Management.

Aptly called the 129th and Pine Development Project, the job had a number of notable specs and features. It totaled 77,000 square feet with 61,303 square feet comprising of the location’s warehouse and manufacturing area and 14,961 square feet were devoted to the two-story office. The project was completed this past August. Architects for the project were GH2 Architects.

“It was a significant project and one that we were extremely proud of for a number of reasons,” said Stava Building project manager Justin Sessions. “We incorporated a new type of fall protection – Sky Web® — that helped speed up our erection time, which was important because the end user was consolidating operations from two other out of state locations into this new facility. It was challenging project, but we were able to get the project into budget and have it completed within schedule.”

The 129th and Pine Development Project facility will house production, engineering, testing, warehousing and manufacturing.

Project superintendent Robert Bennett incorporated the following building features:

  • Architectural Horizontal Metal Panel Exterior
  • 8’ CMU Wainscot
  • 6 Semi truck delivery docks
  • Complex power and data delivery system
  • 18,000 square foot mezzanine
  • Aluminum canopy system
  • LED lighting
  • Hydrofoil fans
  • Heavy duty concrete paving
  • Architectural standing seam roof
  • 36’ eave height

“It’s always nice to be recognized by your peers for your work,” said Stava Building Corporation CEO John Stava. “There are a lot of other great companies who do great work in the Tulsa area. It’s a very competitive industry. I’m really proud of our team’s work and attention to detail on this project.”

Project Highlight: EADS – Jatasco

It is always exciting to highlight a recent project that we have completed. Today, we are showcasing an office/warehouse that we recently finished for an EADS Distribution Company (Jatasco) – right here in Tulsa, OK.

EADS – Jatasco was designed and developed for a manufacturing company that needed additional space. Stava Building Corporation designed a 30,000 square foot Pre-Engineered Metal Building (PEMB) to house the company’s manufacturing, break areas, employee facilities and offices. The building includes brick masonry veneer, exterior loading docks, and large fans for improved ventilation.

Thank you, EADS – Jatasco, for trusting your building project to Stava Building Corporation! We hope you enjoy your new space!

Starting a Construction Project

Many people come to us with one simple question, “Where do I start?” In fact, this question can be difficult to answer, especially if you are unsure of what you want.

A good place to start is to consider the following, which is known as the “Three Legged Stool” or “Pick Two” approach:

→ Timing

→ Quality

→ Cost


Three Legged Stool Approach

These three aspects of a project are very important to think about, because, they will decide the direction your project takes. Consider the three, which two are most important to you and your project, and you will then begin to have a realistic idea of the journey you are about to embark on.

So, are you looking for a high quality building turned around fairly quickly? Are you going for low cost with high quality? Do you want to turn a project quickly with low cost? These are vital questions to ask yourself as you launch this venture.

I will leave you with a few more considerations to keep in mind during your “brainstorm” phase.

→ How much land you need (small lot, a few acres)

→ The type of land you need (brownfield – industrial purposes, greenfield – urban or city environment)

→ Type of building (commercial, educational, industrial, religious)

→ It’s use (warehouse, retail, office)

→ Parking space (visitors, employees, clients)
