AMVAC Chemical

New R&D Laboratory

AMVAC develops and manufactures products for agriculture and commercial use. They engaged LCS for consulting services for both site selection and projected construction costs for their proposed new facility. With a cost analysis for two options, AMVAC chose option two which would locate their new R&D laboratory within an existing 100,000-square foot warehouse. LCS’ design-build team identified creative approaches to satisfy AMVAC’s facility, budget and schedule goals and delivered the project ahead of schedule.
