Arkansas Art Center
The Arkansas Art center is a renovation project of the original building built in 1937. The original entrance was preserved, and the building encapsulated this making it a focal point. The building is a 130,531 square foot facility with a state-of-the-art HVAC system. This system must operate within a plus or minus one-degree setpoint of the temperature and humidity to protect the artwork. The project also has a radiant floor system suppling both heating and cooling for the blossom area consisting of 36,000 feet piping in the slab. There are classrooms for forging, pottery, woodworking, welding, and painting. There are also two full kitchens and a bar to serve the restaurant inside the blossom area.
This Project started in 9-9-2019 and has a grand opening date of January 2022. Action is currently demobilizing and preparing for the final commissioning of this project.

This new multi-story project in downtown is certainly drawing a lot of attention in the Tulsa area. This project is a total of 542,219 sq. ft of prime office space in the heart of town. It consists virtually of a North tower that will be eleven stories at a whopping 177’ in height, a South tower that will be 6 stories tall, 2 level underground parking, and 5 level above grade parking structure with a total of 655 parking spaces. These structures are positioned on the lot to allow for a great Plaza area with landscaping, fountains, tree’s and plenty of patio surrounding the building.
We were fortunate enough to secure a contract on the plumbing and piping only, although this was substantial amounting to a contract consisting of 13,300 plus hours of work to be done. Considering that most of the space is to be tenants space, the project has already grown in scope, to date we have submitted additional pricing that may result in an additional 3,500 man hours in change orders just adding the core and shell finishes and the additional Plaza work to be completed. Our project Foreman is Jason Nauman who is working hand in hand with Flintco, Integrated Design LLC., and all other trades, as this is an all concrete structure requiring the upmost attention to layout and coordination through all phases of the project. Jason has done a phenomenal job coordinating and planning all the details required for a project this size. It is Obvious that Jason has much knowledge in our trade and performs above and beyond what is required, taking great pride in the product he & his crews produce for our customers.

University of Arkansas Stadium Drive Residence Hall
The University of Arkansas Stadium Drive Residence Hall hydronic utility project supplied chilled and heating water from the central utility supply lines to the new dormitory buildings being constructed on campus. With the two dormitory building being built in unison with the utility work, it proved to be challenging.

Following safety protocol by all involved resulted in a successful injury free project.
