Schlumberger Katy Products Center / Dyna-Drill Technologies

Project Description

Name: Schlumberger Katy Products Center / Dyna-Drill Technologies
Location: Katy, TX
Completion: July 2013
Value: $37.4 million
Owner: Dyna-Drill Technologies
Architect: Kirksey Architecture

Previously conducting its operations from several leased facilities in North Houston, Dyna-Drill Technologies, a subsidiary of Schlumberger, needed to consolidate their offices to a new headquarters campus. The 17-acre site features 340,000 square feet of new office, manufacturing, laboratory, and material storage space, as well as separate commons area with full-service kitchen, dining area, fitness room, locker rooms and meeting/training spaces. All this was accomplished by leveraging BIM for above-ceiling and in-wall MEP coordination and bridge crane clash detection in the high bay area. The Katy Products Center is located adjacent to the Schlumberger-owned PathFinder Energy Services campus, a project which our team also completed.

Lone Star College Parking Garage at Fairbanks Center

Project Description

Name: Lone Star College Parking Garage at Fairbanks Center
Location: Houston, TX
Completion: August 2014
Value: $3 million
Owner: Lone Star College System
Architect: Kirksey Architecture

The three-level precast parking structure adds more than 300 spaces to alleviate parking challenges at the Lone Star College- CyFair Fairbanks Center. The project faced multiple challenges from the start: limited funds, a tight schedule with significant long lead time for precast and accessibility of the center to students and the public. The garage was completed within 21 weeks, which was earlier than the original schedule and included all site work, utilities, foundations and elevator installation.

Part of Webber’s strategy was to save money on re-paving by preventing damage to the existing surface lot. Our team prepared a detailed plan to control the flow of construction traffic and designated certain areas for high protection. The plan also included isolating construction activities from the school’s activities to protect the students and public. Through careful coordination of a detailed plan, additional savings were returned to the college at the end of the project.
