Last year a tornado hit the shops and buildings around 41st and Yale and caused some serious damage, some of which remains today. This area had never seen a storm quite like this before and it got our friends at BOK thinking. What would happen if another storm came through and hit their offices on 41st and took out their utilities or even their backup generator?

To protect themselves in the event of a similar event, Cowen Construction is building a FEMA rated generator enclosure that can withstand an F5 tornado. This project is expected to take three months and will give BOK peace of mind knowing their lights will stay on no matter what the weather does.
