Kristine Kobila (as Senior Project Architect with WDG) was the project manager and architectural designer for a new 10,400 square foot laboratory, testing labs, chemical and cold storage rooms and 4,600 square feet of support offices. located in Meraux, LA.

Because of the proximity to the refinery, the team had to accommodate blast resistant design criteria. The structure is steel frame construction with a CMU and brick veneer infill wall system. In addition, the design had to elevate the site and building to meet FEMA requirements. The new building had to provide a modern facility that serves the client’s needs now and plan for the future while respecting the architectural context of the surrounding neighborhood.

Due to the building’s proximity to the river and being located on a state highway, additional permitting efforts were required.
