KAMO CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS

KAMO Rural Electric Cooperative
Vinita, Oklahoma

KAMO Rural Electrical Cooperative initially engaged MILES to conduct an extensive land-use and siting study dealing with major floodplain issues. As a result of this study, MILES also assisted KAMO with the renovation of their existing 27,000-square-foot facility into a technology wing while designing a new 56,000-square-foot, two-story administrative and engineering wing.


The new facility encloses a hardened area for the Systems Operations SCADA Control Room and a dispatch call center. The N.O.C. for the emergency telecom support is housed within the renovated technology wing. Warehousing, generator support, an engineering-tech center, a training facility, and a 17-person boardroom are also part of the new and renovated campus.


The new building reflects the existing architectural style of the KAMO campus. The central-plains region, prairie-style territorial architecture features an oversized, split-faced “prairie block” facade with pilasters that support the hipped, standing-seam metal roof. Sunscreens that articulate the glass openings and wood beams, ceilings, and stone-clad columns at the major interior gathering spaces carry through the territorial style, while glass-front windows at the conferencing areas serve as marker boards at the head of each office wing. A two-toned wood stain, stone, and black-iron palette of materials are used to confirm the references of the regional prairie style.
