The Oklahoma State University/A&M Board of Regents has selected architectural and construction management firms to draft construction plans for crucial infrastructure updates at the OSU Agronomy Research Station in Stillwater.

The board approved Dewberry Architects and Willowbrook as the construction manager during the April 26 board meeting.

The architectural and construction management firms will assist with designing and constructing new greenhouses and a headhouse at the OSU agronomy farm. This initial phase is expected to cost $10 million.

“We are pleased this much-anticipated project is moving forward with the design phase,” said Randy Raper, OSU Agriculture assistant vice president of facilities. “The next steps are to work with the selected firms to develop designs and renderings of the new buildings. Updates to the facility will allow OSU Agriculture to continue to be a leader in wheat research and development.”

Located on the west side of campus along Highway 51, the OSU agronomy farm is a historic facility that houses one of the top wheat breeding programs in the world. OSU has commercialized 34 wheat varieties since 2000 and has the largest footprint for variety development in the Great Plains region.
