Tulsa VA Ernest Childers Outpatient Clinic


Walter P Moore provided structural engineering, secure design, and construction engineering services for a Department of Veterans Affairs outpatient health care center in Tulsa. This new two-story facility consolidated a multitude of services into one building, replacing the Ernest Childers VA Outpatient Clinic, Tulsa VA Behavioral Medicine Clinic, and Tulsa VA Dental Clinic. The center includes spaces for patient registration, offices for Veteran Service Organizations, a Veterans Canteen Service retail space and food court, a VA Police operations center, storage spaces, and five conference rooms.

For the primary structure, our structural engineering delivery was integrated with our construction engineering team to provide full structural steel connection design and steel detailing services. Walter P Moore provided a fully connected LOD 400 TEKLA model to the steel fabricator to expedite an early steel mill order, accelerate steel fabrication, and increase the fidelity of fabricated steel. Impressed by our team’s work, the steel erector lauded this as the easiest steel erection project they had completed to date.

Now complete, the new facility provides veterans with easy access to world class healthcare services under one roof.
