OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – January 10, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Tom Hoch — a pioneer in revenue-based design and turn-key, design-build interior architecture solutions — has been selected for renovations at Sportsman’s Country Club, Oklahoma City’s premier hunting and fishing club.
Highlighted by a completely remodeled bar, lounge and main entrance, renovations will infuse the space with energy and excitement while taking advantage of the spectacular views of Sportsman’s Club Lake.
Using a fast-tracked design-build process made possible by the firm’s in-house studio, Tom Hoch expects to complete the project in less than a month. The studio allows for the seamless transition from design to build and creation of a best-in-class product. Upon completion, the entire interior will be delivered to Sportsman’s Country Club and installed turn-key.
“Sportsman’s Country Club is an oasis that has provided many generations of Oklahoma Cityans with a lifetime of memories through its unique blend of sporting, social, swimming, and lake recreation activities,” says Hoch. “The new clubhouse and site amenities will modernize this true original into a celebrated place that provides each member, young and old, a casual, comfortable, authentic, and quality-filled lifestyle experience.”
