MarkWest Energy Partners, LP operated a product control laboratory at its fractionation facility that needed replacement due to the existing facility being within a blast rated area because of plant expansion. PEDCO designed a new laboratory outside of the blast zone.

PEDCO reviewed the new location for the control lab, designed foundations, and designed site work including location of sanitary waste, storm water, domestic water, and fire water service to the new facility. Mechanically, new HVAC, hood exhaust, and gas piping systems were designed. Electrical, new internal and external lighting, electrical service and distribution within the building, tele/data, and fire alarm were designed. The laboratory facility also included offices, break room, and indoor and outdoor cylinder storage areas.
