The Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs (ODVA) proposes to construct a new State Veterans Center in cooperation with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (USVA) south of Sallisaw, Sequoyah County, Oklahoma. The new center will replace the aging and poorly located veterans’ home in Talihina, Oklahoma. When the new facility is built, the staff and residents will be moved to Sallisaw. The new facility will have approximately 275 employees and be able to house approximately 180 residents. LandPlan’s role was to work with Orcutt/Winslow (architect) and Wallace Engineering (civil engineers) to help site the 218,000 SF building on the 40.8 acre site. The building includes 9 courtyards with specific designs for physical therapy, passive healing, spaces for memory care patients, recreation, and dining. LandPlan has also had the honor of participating in a nationwide search for an artist to create a visual statement piece to utilize the Art in Public Places funding for the project. The team of OMES/DCAM representatives, ODVA, and the design team have worked to create a welcoming home for our nations most honored heroes.
