Oklahoma State University // Dr. Raymond Sidwell Research Facility
The Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station, North Central Research Station, consists of 143 acres located one mile west of Lahoma on Highway 60. The station is a major focus for OSU’s wheat research, but the former station buildings were inadequate and outdated.
As Construction Manager, Ross Group constructed a new research facility with help from the Sidwell Family donors. The new PEMB includes everything the research station needs — equipment bays, offices, conference rooms, a welcome lobby, janitor closet, and restrooms.
At the donors’ request, the facility was built to have a front porch to cultivate a welcoming and inviting atmosphere. The orange panels are visible from the highway so drivers can easily identify the facility as an extension of the OSU campus.
