Quality Control and Research & Development Laboratories, TPC Group
Location: Houston, Texas
Completed: October 2011
Architect: Roger Stephens

On August 26, 2010 LCS broke ground for TPC Group’s new technical center which houses a 19,500 square foot laboratory facility. The design-build project consists of a combined quality control (QC) and research and development (R&D) laboratory.
The facility design maximizes energy efficiency in the application of the HVAC and exhaust systems and also includes outfitting the entire QA/R&D laboratory with all specialty gases, casework, and custom enclosures for pilot plant testing. The new laboratory building also includes corporate conference rooms and offices for 18 scientists.
