Valero st. Charles refining laboratory
petrochemical refining laboratory | st. Charles parish, la
In 2004, WDG provided comprehensive architectural and engineering services to Valero St. Charles Refining for the design of a new 11,000 square foot laboratory. Since then, Valero has built a new process unit nearby the laboratory, thus including the lab in the blast zone. In 2012, WDG assisted Valero with the decision-making process by accessing different options for reinforcing or relocating the lab. Currently, WDG is providing design services to reinforce the laboratory to meet blast resistance criteria, including foundation, columns and beams, structural, roofing, roof trusses, door/window hardening, and relocation of some required openings and components of egress.
