Rick Wylie Construction has been around for more than 25 years. Since tornadoes devastated the heart of Oklahoma in 2013, the focus of the company has shifted quite a bit from building above ground structures to installing underground shelters. “My great- grandfather and grandfather, my dad and my uncles – they’ve all built them. I’m the youngest,” Rick said of the Bohannons and Wylies who have built storm shelters in southwest Oklahoma for decades. Rick also offers quality above ground steel shelters as well as all types of construction.

Rick said he has taken the best features of the Wylie and Bohannon designs and added some of his own. “The basic design is the one passed down in the family. These shelters are built on- site and are not pre-cast. The sizes range from 6 x 8 feet up to 14 x 16 feet. He said the oblong measurement maximizes floor space and allows for a clear doorway path. Doorways are 30” wide and ceilings are 6’ 6 inches high. The steps down into the shelter are not steep. All of these features make for easy access, which Wylie says is the main appeal of his shelters. Other standard features include two louvered vents that can be operated from inside. There is a 16×24-inch escape hatch, in case the door is damaged or blocked and an alternate exit is needed. The shelters are plaster inside and out, Eye bolt in the door and in the floor, conduit and a light box.


Our storm shelters meet and or exceed  FEMA-320 and ICC-500 specifications.
