OCCC Master Plan
OCCC Master Plan
Opened in 1972, Oklahoma City Community College now covers 148 acres, with nearly 962,000 sq. ft. of building space. Campus center of the popular South Oklahoma City commuter school is only a five minute walk from perimeter parking and is easily accessible from Oklahoma City roadways. Triad Design Group architects collaborated with urban and university planner, Ferrell Madden Lewis to develop a long range Master Site Plan for OCCC as a guide for future buildings, grounds, and outdoor events. Master Plan priorities:
1. Develop and enhance the pedestrian-friendly campus in an environmentally sustainable manner
2. Maintain a sense of campus community
3. Strengthen college-community relationships
OCCC’s committed strategy for planned growth is represented in over thirty-five years of Triad A&E design which include:
▪The Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC): Divisions of Film and Video, Visual Arts, Music, Photography and 1,100 seat acoustical Theater.
