Oklahoma Blood Institute
The Oklahoma Blood Institute engaged SDG Architects in the Summer of 2017 to investigate potential project sites within the City of Ardmore. During this time, SDG provided preliminary site designs for two possible locations with potential for purchase. In the Fall of 2017, Oklahoma Blood Institute purchased approximately two and half acres of land in the Northwest region of Ardmore to build a new Donor facility to relocate the existing Southern Oklahoma branch. SDG worked with the client to design an approximately 7,000 square foot commercial healthcare facility that includes offices, conference space, a modern donor area with an open waiting and refreshment space directly adjacent to the main lobby. The primary concept for the design of the building was to create a modern and warm facility that was approachable and comfortable for donors and staff alike. Natural color tones and textures are used throughout the exterior and interior finishes of the building to create a light and soothing experience. Construction began in July of 2019 and the anticipated completion date is Spring 2020.
