Bercen, Inc. - Headquarters and Laboratories
Bercen, Inc. Craig Morgan, General Manager
Design new construction of 13,000 SF corporate headquarters, with offices and laboratories in Denham Springs, Louisiana.
Bercen, Inc. is a chemcial manaufacturer. BBI Architects had to make certain the new facility would meet all of the various codes and manufacturing objectives for the client.
Integrating new energy efficient HVAC systems with variable controls and exhaust hoods for the laboratories was part of the design solution.
BBI Architects coordinated the design with the lab equipment specifications from the Owner. mechanical and electrical engineers, and lab consultants. We coordinated design of the electrical systems, sprinkler systems, fire walls, and other elements of the design to ensure safe operation of the laboratories and compliance with all life safety codes. Extensive research was conducted to make sure that all federal, state, and local regulations and ordinances were satisfied in the design.
After the project went into construction, the Owner had a need to revise the budget and BBI Architects successfully value engineered the project to fit within the new revised budget.
