Location: Smithville, TXOur design team is currently providing commissioning services for a renovation of Labs 1 and 2 (two existing laboratory buildings of 22,000 sq. ft. each). Design and construction are being phased to eliminate substantial downtimes and allow these buildings to remain occupied and operating. Another key factor is to bring the renovations online as quick as possible. As such, each building is being apportioned into three sections. By concentrating design and construction efforts on the initial segment of the building, the finished space will be available much quicker than if the total building were to be renovated. This space will be used as a recruiting tool for the research campus and will serve as an example design for the remaining sections.
