- Quality Control Laboratory and Office Building
Burns & McDonnell partnered with Ergon Refining in developing its vision for a new, modern laboratory and office facility. Today, the refining company’s Administration, Research and Quality Control departments thrive in these new facilities. The 20,000-square-foot Quality Control Laboratory is designed to meet stringent regulatory requirements that limit worker exposure to hazardous chemicals. Using a sophisticated ventilation system, laboratory hoods abate exhaust, dynamically synchronizing with make-up air supplied to the laboratory space. The laboratory is designed to provide ample space for safe operations, including casework in conducting testing and quality control procedures.
Adjacent to the laboratory, Ergon’s new two-story, 37,000-square-foot office building houses the refinery’s technical, engineering and support staff in a comfortable, light-filled environment. The new facility includes meeting and support spaces, conferencing areas, and a host of employee amenities.
