With the Oklahoma City Metro Area continuing to grow and the talent pool increasing, Gateway found Edmond to be the perfect fit for a new location. Fantastic living opportunities and a stellar school system were additional benefits of locating in the city.

Gateway purchased the 21,851-square-foot office building at 80 E. 5th St. The company is currently housed on the fourth floor of the building, with tenants occupying the first and third floors and the 4,809-square-foot second floor available for lease.

Gateway's main focus in Edmond is to be a top-flight corporate citizen. When the company opened its Edmond location, a top priority was participating in a philanthropic program with strong community ties. The company chose to become a platinum sponsor for the University of Central Oklahoma's Endeavor Games.

A full circle energy services company with a reputation for quality and reliable work, Gateway offers pipeline construction, drafting, mapping, land survey, directional drilling, safety training and consulting, environmental services and more.

In its land survey department, Gateway recently added aerial LiDAR services. LiDAR stands for light detection and ranging. The laser technology is used for measuring distances through the return of light waves. Clients benefit from the service due to shorter project timelines, lower project costs, and an increase in the quality and quantity of data in deliverables.

Gateway is focused on quality and longevity as opposed to expedience and short-term success. The company wants to maintain the highest level of quality as it continues to expand its workforce and services.
