Tulsa Commercial Construction Company Celebrates 2017 (PART 2)

By all accounts, 2017 was a big year for the Stava Building Corporation. The highly-regarded Tulsa commercial construction company took on 12 new projects this past year, with seven of those unique and creative projects being dedicated to the John Zink Ranch & Foundation.

The sprawling Skiatook 38,000-acre complex will be used as a future camp by the Indian Nations Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Projects the Stava Building Corporation undertook for the John Zink Ranch & Foundation included two shower rooms, a training center, trading post, pavilion, sporting clays, amphitheater and a pool house for the future camp valued at $28 million.

The John Zink Project has been particularly meaningful for Stava Building Corporation CEO John Stava, who previously served as a Troop Leader for the Boy Scouts of America.

“It is a very big and important project for the company and myself,” Stava said. “The Boy Scouts of America is a very honorable and worthwhile organization that fosters the development and growth of a lot of youths throughout our country. The vision of the John Zink Ranch & Foundation is very admirable. It’s an honor to be involved in this project.”

Tulsa Commercial Construction Company Unveils Helmerich Pool House Specs

Due to the sheer magnitude and commitment that is required for the John Zink Project, the Helmerich Pool House is the only project completed thus far. That said, the finished project was the foundation which led to the Stava Building being awarded the facility’s additional projects.

The Helmerich Pool House for the future Boy Scouts of America camp totals 5,100 square-feet and features a number of amenities that includes:

  • Five different locker facilities (men’s, women’s, boys, girls and family)
  • Energy efficient instant hot water heaters for all showers
  • Office check-in station
  • Two mechanical rooms
  • LED light fixtures
  • 18’ by 120’ porch which overlooks two commercial pools

Another notable facet about the construction of the Helmerich Pool House was that all of the building’s walls were made of masonry and carried the weight of the building. All total, the well-known Tulsa commercial construction company used over 10,000 CMU (construction) blocks on the project.

Though impressive, the project did present its unique set of challenges that had to be overcome by Stava Building project Manager Justin Sessions and project architect Wallace Wozencraft.

One of the bigger issues the Stava Building team faced was the logistics of the facility, which was miles away from the nearest supply house. Additionally, the facility was only accessible by a four-mile long gravel road which was closed for part of the project to prevent heavy rutting after heavy rains hit.

“We were faced with a challenging location,” Sessions said, “but we never compromised our craftsmanship and attention to detail while still completing this project on time and in budget. It was a very satisfying and rewarding project to be a part of.”
