  • Pete Ellis is OSPE Young Engineer of the Year
  • GUY Accepted for Tulsa's Small Business Enterprise Program
  • From Groundbreakings to Ribbon Cuttings
  • GUY Gives Back: Egan Camp and Retreat Center
  • Project Lettings

The Tulsa Mayor’s Office for Human Rights has accepted GUY as a member of the Small Business Enterprise program. GUY has a long history of work with Tulsa, including award-winning designs for Centennial Park, Bird Creek bank stabilization, and Crow Creek drainage improvements.  GUY and other companies in the Small Business Enterprise program are on a preferred list for consideration to do business with the City of Tulsa.


From Groundbreakings...

The City of Tulsa held a groundbreaking for a new compressed natural gas fueling station on June 8. The new station will be used by city vehicles and will also be available for use by the general public. GUY provided the site design for the station, which is located near 33rd and Memorial in Tulsa and is expected to be complete in early 2017.

Check out this video of the groundbreaking.

To Ribbon Cuttings

On June 15, GUY and the Pittsburg County commissioners celebrated the opening of Bridge #133 Bull Creek located near Scipio, OK. The new 32ft wide, 83ft long PC beam span bridge replaced a 17ft wide, 53ft long structurally deficient pony truss bridge originally built in 1928. GUY's design further enhanced site distance and safety by modifying a small Y-intersection with a 90 degree drive. 


GUY Gives Back: Egan Camp and Retreat Center

15.5 inches of rain in two days. That's what Egan Camp and Retreat Center experienced in December 2015. The United Methodist camp, located near Tahlequah on the Illinois River, suffered flood damage, including bank loss around a number of buildings and bridge scour. GUY was contacted to inspect the condition of the bridge and make recommendations for bank repair and scour protection. Due to the severity of the scour behind one abutment, the bridge had to be closed to all traffic and a temporary pedestrian bridge built to connect the east and west sides of the camp. GUY recommended some temporary and permanent repairs that could be made in order to re-open the bridge, and also made a number of recommendations for repairing flood-damaged banks. GUY also provided support in coordinating with the Corps of Engineers, prepared a 404 permit, and coordinated with ODOT to remove debris accumulation at a culvert upstream of the camp. 

This was not the first time GUY has helped Camp Egan; as recently as 2013, we assisted the camp after another major storm by completing and obtaining all of the permitting requirements prior to the clean-up process. We look forward to working with them in the future to assist them with planned future projects and continued development on the camp.
