Western Specialty Contractors Earns Two AGCOK Awards
ST. LOUIS—June 25, 2021—The Tulsa, Oklahoma branch of Western Specialty Contractors was recently honored by the Associated General Contractors of Oklahoma (AGCOK) with two “Best of the Best Under $2 Million” awards for projects completed in 2020. Representatives from Western’s Tulsa branch accepted the AGCOK awards at the organization’s 81st Annual Awards Banquet on April 17, 2021. The AGCOK is the state’s leading commercial/industrial construction trade association, headquartered in Oklahoma City. The awards honor outstanding commercial construction companies, employees, industry partners and leaders that have helped build the Oklahoma community.
“It is a great honor to be completing projects like this in Tulsa since our branch was established in 1945,” said Western Tulsa Branch Manager Doug Martin. “We have been waterproofing and restoring buildings here for over 75 years. Receiving awards like this always prove the integrity, quality, and pride our field personnel have daily. Give them quality. That’s the best kind of advertising. But, of course, that quality also brings in awards, which we very much appreciate.”
The AGCOK Awards were presented to Western Specialty Contractors for:
- Harwelden Mansion – Best of the Best – Historical Restoration Under $2 Million (Masonry, Concrete and Sealants) Located just minutes from downtown Tulsa, Harwelden is a historic, Collegiate Gothic-English Tudor-style mansion built in 1923 by businessman and philanthropist Earl P. Harwell. Western’s team restored several of its deteriorating concrete balcony bolsters with hand-formed replacements and installed new sealants around the mansion’s windows.
- OneOK Building – Best of the Best – Top to Bottom Exterior Restoration Under $2 Million (Sealants) Western’s team performed a complete exterior restoration on the 17-story high-rise building at 100 West 5th Street. Workers re-installed all the building’s exterior sealants and repaired damaged granite panels. Western’s Tulsa branch had originally installed the building’s sealants when it was constructed in 1984.
