Utilizing a building originally constructed in the 1920s, the Pioneer Woman Boarding House is a one-of-a-kind "cowboy luxury" hotel in the heart of Pawhuska, Oklahoma. Taking inspiration from the history of the building and the personal style of the owners, 8 unique suites were created in a 9 month construction time. Every aspect of the design was carefully handpicked to allow for cohesion of the theme throughout each room.

TCC Southeast Campus Chatroom | Architect Beck Design

Beck Design, Professional Engineering Consultants, and Builders Unlimited collaborated with Tulsa Community College to revitalize an existing student space known as the Southeast Chatroom. The project had a construction cost of $714,500.00 and included an addition of an outdoor seating area as well as renovating an interior space of 6,812 square feet. The design was a result of collaboration with the Students, Faculty and Staff of the College and was completed on March 5th, 2018.

Because of a wall separating the Chatroom from the corridor, many students did not realize this space was open for their use. Tulsa Community College tasked our firm with creating an open and inviting student space that incorporated a collaborative environment as well as intimate study spaces.

Tri County Tech (TCT) is a learning technology center focused on classes and opportunities for high school students, adult education, as well as business development training and services. The school’s vision is to “Inspire Success Through Life Changing Learning Experiences.” TCT has been so successful in increasing class opportunities for high school students as well as strengthening their traditional offerings that they needed to reconfigure and reimagine their campus to accommodate growth. Their need was to reimagine their campus without adding new construction. Their goal was to create a vibrant space that would excite the students and faculty, and establish an engaging and collaborative atmosphere that would appeal to the local business community, as well as create a new brand identity and heart for their existing campus.

Consumer Affairs | Architect: W Design |

Consumer Affairs is an independent Web-based consumer news and resource center based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 2015 after several years of success and growth, Consumer Affairs found itself in need of a larger physical space. They strategically selected the iconic Petroleum Club Building in downtown Tulsa to be their new corporate headquarters. Consumer Affairs took over the 14th, 15th and 16th floors of the building which formerly housed the exclusive Petroleum Club.

The space of the former club had sat empty for several years and was a dark and compartmentalized space with layers of wallpaper, trim, paint, carpet and drapery that was pealing, stained and deteriorating. The club had experienced a fire in the 90’s and the original décor was long gone and had been replaced by an aesthetic that quickly dated the club.
