Owen-Ames-Kimball earns Best Commercial Contractors Project at Lee BIA Summit 2015 Awards

Owen-Ames-Kimball (OAK) Company was recently recognized at the 2015 Lee BIA Summit Awards for Best Commercial Contractors Project for the 2014-2015 year. Lee BIA Summit honored the company for its outstanding level of success and professionalism in commercial building, planning and design of the Waterman Broadcasting studio expansion project.

The project included an 8,000-square-foot tilt-wall addition to the existing studio facility and demolition of the old studio space and atrium. Interior improvements included a renovated lobby with new staircase and elevator, a new studio, an open-plan newsroom, edit booths, a new videographers’ office, green rooms, office space, an employee break room and restrooms. The project also included improved power, HVAC and fire suppression systems and a renovation of the former studio space for production and marketing staff. The work was completed as Waterman Broadcasting continued its normal business operations.

“Owen-Ames-Kimball delivered the new studio on-time, despite the extreme challenges of working around our television production schedule,” said Steve Pontius, executive vice president and general manager of Waterman Broadcasting. “They worked with their subcontractors to accommodate our needs, sometimes working overnight, and ensured every deadline was met.”
