CHOCTAW NATION INDEPENDENT ELDER HOUSING
The Choctaw Nation was in need of housing for their elder members. Chahta Architecture designed a single housing unit that would be used at the Coalgate location. Eleven of these houses were built for this location and included an open entry/living/dining/kitchen area, a master bedroom suite, a prefabricated safe room, and a laundry closet. The house also included a carport with an enclosed storage area. Along with the eleven housing units at this site, a common building was also designed that included offices for the staff and a common area, kitchen, and restrooms for the residents to use for social gatherings and events.
EDUCATION DEPARTMENT ADMINISTRATION OFFICES
The Education Administration Building was in need of renovations to provide additional offices and work spaces for their employees. Half of the existing shop area was designed to house new offices for the Head Start and Day Care Directors and provide more room for open office space. A new conference room, storage room, and reception area were also part of the new design. New finishes were designed for the entire space including the existing rooms.
CHOCTAW NATION HEADQUARTERS EXECUTIVE OFFICES RENOVATIONS
The Executive offices at the Choctaw Nation Headquarters needed to be renovated to accommodate new management. A larger room was divided into more offices and all offices received upgraded finishes. New suspended ceiling system and lighting were designed for all executive offices in this part of the building.
CHOCTAW TRIBAL SERVICES BUILDING IMPROVEMENTS
This project involved the renovation of the existing Tribal Services Building. The existing building had a 3,677 SF Meeting Hall that was divided into a reception area, twelve private offices, a 468 SF Conference Room, a storage room, and an open office area for cubicles. The mechanical and electrical rooms were combined to expand the kitchen area into a 350 SF break room with more counter space and storage. The restrooms were renovated to incorporate ADA standards, and new furniture and lighting was provided throughout.
