We have used OMS for each and every project done for the Cloverdale School Corporation over a period of over 30 years. Our partnership is strong and we appreciate their commitment to excellence.

Dr. Carrie Milner, Superintendent, Cloverdale Community School Corporation

I would highly recommend OMS for any new construction or renovation projects a school corporation may be contemplating. OMS personnel are very thorough in making sure all aspects are properly done all from the initial assistance in procuring proper financial funding, drawings, bidding process and overseeing the work; including the follow-up details. Very professional and caring group to work with.

Michael F. Turner, Superintendent, North Vermillion Community School Corporation

We have partnered with OMS for several projects over the last couple of years. OMS is outstanding to work with. They do a great job in project management, budget management, and provide timely and effective communication. Our projects’ success is a direct result of OMS and their leadership.

Marc Cizewski, Director of Facilities, LaPorte Community School Corporation

I am very pleased with the work of OMS. Starting with their systematic attention to quality construction and functional detail, the OMS team has provided a superior project for our students and community – all on time and within budget. I regularly hear compliments from teachers, students, and community members about how well built, attractive, and functional our new facilities are. Most recently, we were commended on the design of our science labs by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement, specific to our biomedical programming and our state-of-the-art labs. I am certain that much of this is owed to the experienced and exceptional work from the OMS team of architects and engineers. I am confident that OMS will continue in their efforts to provide professional expertise and project support that will last years into the future.

Dr. Linda Gellert, Superintendent, Greenfield-Central Community School Corporation

OMS was passionate about design issues during the design phase and helped us make decisions about shapes, aesthetic attributes, and colors that we otherwise would not have made; incorporating existing color schemes in the renovated buildings and updating with contemporary colors. The result has been an enormous improvement over our previous facilities on both the interior and exterior that we could never have imagined until we saw the reality.

The OMS folks were with us all the way, listening and asking questions. Because they were deeply involved in our conversations, they knew what we were thinking even if we could not articulate it. The sketches they came up with gave us something concrete to work from and helped us advance our plans. By the time the final drawings were submitted, everyone had bought into the project and was on board. The Switzer Student Center is the magnet that draws our entire campus community together in one place.

Thank you for doing the floor plans for our seating at Hinkle Fieldhouse.  Ticketmaster was able to utilize those plans in creating our interactive seat map, which we feel greatly enhances our fans experience in purchasing tickets online.  Thanks again for helping us to see these positive results.

Since the Odle McGuire Shook Corporation designed the Landrum Bolling Center, the building has been an exceptional asset to Earlham College.  It continues to serve the campus in ways it was intended when it was designed and constructed.  The interior of the building is a marvel for prospective students and community members, while the outside is a seamless and beautiful addition to the overall Earlham Aesthetic.  The Odle McGuire Shook Corporation delivered the attractive, well designed building it promised.

Douglas C. Bennett, Immediate Past President, Earlham College

I am very pleased to express our strong satisfaction with several major building projects with Odle McGuire Shook Corporation in the work that they have done for the University of Indianapolis. The Schwitzer Student Center is an outstanding building in terms of quality, workmanship, and design. In fact, the interior design just recently won an award. The flow of the remodeled section of the original building with the remodeled section of the building is seamless, and the design is clearly very coordinated creating an excellent building for us. Thank you for providing us with excellent design and very functional buildings, and we are most pleased with your work.

Beverley J. Pitts, Immediate Past President, University of Indianapolis

I am writing to confirm our satisfaction with Odle McGuire Shook Corporation for building the Orr Center and the Health Professions Center for the University of Southern Indiana. The Orr Center is the first building designed and constructed on campus with a much-improved quality of materials used on the interiors and exterior and began our new quality standards for design and construction. Much of this quality improvement is due to OMS’s quality of design and architecture you brought to our campus. The Health Professions Center remains, as does the Orr Center, a very attractive and functional building that is well designed and solidly constructed. Odle MeGuire Shook has provided an excellent design and very functional buildings for USI.

From the onset, Odle McGuire Shook sought out the library’s staff and Board to form a collective think tank that benefited the project in significant ways. They listened to the staff’s wants, needs, and dreams and came back to us with a design that was even better than the one we had imagined. I was also thankful that OMS had a representative that attended all of the construction meetings. Everybody works to make sure that the building process is a success. With the help of the OMS team, we completed on time and under budget.

Kay K. Martin, Lebanon Public Library

OMS understood our vision and provided the leadership we needed to build consensus with the community and establish an environment of collaboration and communication to achieve our goals. They worked hand in hand with our library director, the board and our staff throughout the process to ensure the project stayed on track. Our project manager was present at our community forums to present the project, answer questions and collect feedback, which was priceless to the process. They also worked very closely with the bond council, financial advisor and the owners representative so that everyone was up to date on our progress every step of the way.

The design solutions are sustainable, efficient and flexible. The addition to the building is seamless and the building has become a treasured landscape in downtown Lebanon. OMS was a great listener and they worked hand in hand with us to create a design specific to our needs and budget.

Harold “Huck” Lewis, Mayor, City of Lebanon

I worked with the company, Odle McGuire Shook, on the renovation of the Lebanon Public Library sitting in on planning meetings. I found their staff members to be courteous, professional, and forward thinking. It was a good experience to work with them.

Odle McGuire Shook was highly responsive, and met or exceeded every deadline established for the Murdock Professional Center in Port Charlotte. The process went smoothly and the space was designed and finished below the established budget and precisely on time. We were working with tight deadlines and found the experience to be extremely satisfactory.

The Noblesville City Hall stands today as an example of successful design, good quality and within budget. The old and new was blended into a project of pride for the entire community. Odle McGuire Shook was the glue that held the project together during all phases of the project.

Mary Sue Rowland, City of Noblesville

In our industry of design and construction, the challenge to ensure that the project is successfully completed requires much professionalism, accuracy, commitment, cooperation and so much more. Your team provided all of the components to ensure the successful completion of the Pike Fire Department, Station 114. Odle McGuire Shook was able to demonstrate the capabilities and experience that best aligned with the interest of the Pike Township Fire Department and the Pike Township Trustees. Thank you for your cooperation.

Pike Fire Department, Station 114

Staff members form Odle McGuire Shook Corporation met with Chamber staff to provide in-kind support of the project and valuable input for the project. We found the OMS representatives to be knowledgeable, reliable, and very conscious of the integrity of the building – something that was of great importance when considering renovation. The communication process was open and forthright, and the resulting concepts and design topics were discussed thoroughly. We appreciate all that they did for us in collaboration for a successful project.
