    Impressive list. Longer than I would have expected.

    (by the way, check the spelling for the parking garage under the TAP entry)

    Another suggested entry: Miles Associates

    SAIC (previously Benham). Also, FSB did not do the work on the Chesapeake Arena, that was Benham.

    A few that come to mind I've dealt with over the years and not on your list:

    Oklahoma Architects Glover Smith Bode are Architects in Oklahoma City | gsb

    http://www.spraguechurcharchitect.com/

    http://www.bwaarchitects.com/

    Blackledge & Associates Architects (No website apparently)

    You might browse the Central Oklahoma AIA membership directory. It's 76 pages and takes a bit to download. http://www.aiacoc.org/2012-2013-AIAC...-Directory.pdf

    I would think Larry Blackledge might be close to retirement. The short time that I did contract work there (between Benham stints) they were not exactly into current tech, they had some old HP CAD systems that they were still trying to wring some life out of. The main person there (other than Larry) left and went out on his own a few years after my time there.

    I worked on JDM Place while I was at Benham, it was designed by Quentin Remy but I finished the project after he and Steve Blair left Benham to form Blair-Remy Architects after the start of construction, their offices are now in JDM Place.

    Many of the firms on the list came through Benham at some point in their career. Duane Mass (Mass Architects) was one of those that I really thought highly of that I worked with, I remember when he left Benham to start Mass Architects.

    The last contact I had with him was a few years ago. I don't know what all his firm was involved with but they were cranking out nursing home, retirement and assisted living center plans around the state and where ever at the time. He designed Tuscany Village Nursing Home in The Village and Meadow Lake Retirement Center on the southside. He might have done the Meadowlake Estates Nursing Home next to the retirement center too but it was built some years before the more recent retirement center.

    He was walking with a cane and talking about retiring. I got the impression he might be one of those who dies at their desk though.

    It wouldn't surprise me if that were to happen, it also doesn't shock me that he doesn't have a website. I think most of his work relied on relationships that he had developed over years instead of the type of marketing that is used now. Even in this day and age most firms are sustained or started by relationships and not website marketing but trying to get new work outside of those requires some newer techniques. By that point he probably had as much work as he wanted.

    I worked on Love's stores, that was around 94-95 but only for a few months before I got another offer from Benham.

    Locally, Guernsey is designing ConRAC and they did the Thunder Indoor Practice Facility as well as the Outdoor Practice Facility. They also designed the new HQ for Oklahoma Electric Cooperative in Norman. The interior designer responsible for much of the CHK Arena re-do (especially the Thunder locker room) is now with Guernsey as well.
