Lewis Associates Wins OSSBA’s Architectural Exhibition

Ponca City-based Lewis Associates Architects has been honored by the Oklahoma State School Boards Association for its outstanding architectural work at Pioneer Technology Center.

“Excellent building design improves the learning experience, and it’s important to recognize that connection,” said Shawn Hime, OSSBA executive director.

The company was presented with the annual architectural People’s Choice Award on Aug. 26 at OSSBA’s annual conference. In order to be eligible, a school project in Oklahoma must be designed by a licensed Oklahoma architect. Submitted projects must be completed between Jan. 1, 2006-Aug. 1, 2017. Attendees at the annual conference selected the winning project.

The 16,637-square-foot health sciences addition was constructed by construction manager Kyler Construction Group (formerly Sooner Construction) of Ponca City.

“The excellent outcome was due to a collaborative effort between an engaged client, our design staff and diligent contractors. It was a true team effort,” said Troy Lewis, Principal of Lewis Associates Architects.
