Landmark Gold Dome in Oklahoma City set to be sold, preserved

TEEMCO, an Edmond environmental engineering firm, is set to announce a redevelopment agreement with Gold Dome owner David Box that would preserve the historic landmark in Oklahoma City.

TEEMCO was one of the parties that sought to buy the Gold Dome from Box after the demolition plans were made public.

TEEMCO is an environmental services company providing services to the oil, gas, fuel and agriculture industries. It also develops software for environmental compliance management and risk management. It has offices in Edmond; Houston; Midland, Texas; Pittsburg, Kan.; Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C.

Cunningham said final plans and designs will be unveiled at a groundbreaking in late July to be hosted by the TEEMCO Foundation with preconstruction tours provided to guests. Tickets will be sold for the groundbreaking, with proceeds donated to Moore tornado relief efforts and to a local woman in need of a kidney transplant.

“The party will enable the community to share in the revitalization of the dome from start to finish,” Cunningham said. “We'll have another grand reopening party after restoration is complete. The parties will also raise money for two very worthy causes. It's about contributing to the community.”

When the Gold Dome was built at NW 23 and Classen in 1958, the two-story building with the familiar round anodized aluminum roof was touted by Citizens Bank as “the bank of tomorrow.”The Gold Dome was designed by Robert B. Roloff of the Oklahoma architecture firm Bailey, Bozalis, Dickinson & Roloff in collaboration with Kaiser Aluminum Corp. The building was based on the geodesic design by noted inventor, architect and engineer Buckminster Fuller.
