How The Laboratory Experiment Is Paying Off
Energy Architecture is experiencing a boom in laboratories in Houston, and principal Justin Hasbrouck (here with the fam) says the key to a project’s success is selecting a design team with proper laboratory expertise. Current Energy Architecture projects include laboratories for Flotek, Weatherford and Baker Hughes. Justin adds that the slowdown in oil and gas markets has had unexpected positive consequences. Faced with tough environments, owners are reviewing facilities with an eye toward consolidation that has short-term and long-term benefits. Reducing facility footprint begins with eliminating duplication in utilities, services, management and other operating expenses. Energy Architecture knows this firsthand with over 25 major consolidations worldwide under their belt. Also hot is the petrochemical market, with emphasis on design/build teams having vast experience inside the fence and carrying appropriate safety credentials.
