Garver opens new Oklahoma City office
Garver and Oklahoma have enjoyed a long-lasting partnership for more than two decades. With an office in the state since 1993, Garver has long been dedicated to assisting state agencies and municipalities on the improvement of their highways, bridges, water and wastewater infrastructure, and more.
Now, Garver is enhancing that commitment, with the opening of an Oklahoma City office, joining offices in Tulsa and Norman as a third location in the state. Garver now has nearly 600 employees based in 27 offices in 11 states, including nearly 100 in Oklahoma. Garver personnel working in Oklahoma City will primarily provide transportation, water, aviation, construction, and environmental services, but can collaborate with Garver experts from across the country for facilities design, federal, and other services.
“For more than 25 years we’ve been working with municipalities and state agencies to improve the quality of life for Oklahomans,” said Garver Chief Operating Officer Michael Graves, a lifelong Oklahoma resident. “And we’re looking forward to enhancing this rewarding partnership in Oklahoma City, one of the fastest-growing and vibrant cities in our region.”
Garver’s Tulsa office opened in 1993, the first outside of its Arkansas origin, and now has experts providing transportation, water, aviation, construction, and federal services. In 2004, Garver opened an office in Norman, which serves water, aviation, construction, facilities design, and transportation.
In addition, Garver Summit 2017, the company’s annual meeting in which more than 300 employees gathered for professional development and team-building activities, was held in Oklahoma City. And as part of its centennial celebration, Garver is hosting a client-appreciation event on March 5 in Oklahoma City.
Over the years, Garver has delivered to Oklahomans the I-244 multimodal bridge over the Arkansas River, the I-244 inner dispersal loop, the Turner Turnpike, and upgrades to the Norman Water Reclamation Facility. It is currently leading design services on the Gilcrease Expressway, while serving as program manager for the Kaw Lake Water Supply program, which will replenish a depleting water supply for the City of Enid.
Garver is celebrating its centennial year in 2019. To learn more, visit our centennial celebration page.
