Anadarko, OK (PRWEB) July 17, 2012
Icon Construction is pleased to announce the successful completion of five new modular classroom buildings and the relocation of five other classroom buildings at Riverside Indian School in Anadarko, OK. This project was completed in strong coordination and cooperation with the Bureau of Indian Affairs which has jurisdiction over the school. In addition to the new modular construction and the relocation of the existing modular classroom buildings, this large-scale project also included extensive site-work including excavating and grading, utilities, a parking lot to accommodate these facilities and a central courtyard playground area. So as not to disrupt students and critical learning activities, it was necessary to start and finish this project during the period between the spring and fall semesters. Icon Director of Corporate Development Joe Green said, “I am incredibly proud of how quickly the Icon team was able to mobilize, beginning work the day after school dismissed for the summer and completing this project in a compressed time frame. But it could not have been done without the excellent partnership we’ve developed with the BIA over the last several years.”
The Riverside Indian School is the nation’s oldest federally operated American Indian boarding school. It was formally organized in 1871 at the old Wichita Indian Agency commissary and moved to its present location along the Washita River in Anadarko, OK in 1878-79. Riverside Indian School presently has students from dozen of Indian nations attending grades 4-12. Riverside’s history is part of the Bureau of Indian Affairs boarding school system, with current Indian school curricula focusing on college preparation and cultural programming.
