    BP Conference and Training Center

    Project name :

    BP Conference and Training Center

    Client :

    BP

    Location :

    Naperville, IL, United States

    BP Conference and Training Center

    Antiquated office areas and conference rooms were converted into a wireless 32,000 SF corporate convention center for new BP business units with the flexibility to accommodate small group meetings or large "town hall" gatherings. We provided architectural and interior design engineering and site observation services to meet the aggressive 120-day design/bid/build schedule.

    The wireless center allows BP to host satellite intercontinental meetings or on-site trainings seminars. Lighting levels, sound control and presentation media can be adjusted through the center's touch screen technology. In the event of a corporate emergency, the space converts into a crisis center with emergency standby power to support 400 workstations. To reduce overall operating costs, the mechanical systems were converted to an electronically-controlled variable air system to match heating and cooling for the flexible room sizes.

    BP Laboratory Projects - Building 813 Fire System and HVAC Replacement

    Client :

    BP

    Location :

    Naperville, IL, United States

    BP Laboratory Projects - Building 813 Fire System and HVAC Replacement

    BP's 813 building houses equipment that blends numerous test fuels that are additized for vehicle and engine performance tests for BP's Naperville Automotive Laboratory. Because of the fuel's health, safety and environmental hazards, we designed special cooling and fire protection systems for the building, which included a new chiller and special non-sparking and non-arcing electrical equipment.

    A deluge water mist foaming fire protection system was installed in the event of a flash or spark inside the blending area, along with a curb with a ducting system to direct water flow and contain the chemicals during a sprinkler release.

    BP Laboratory Projects - Catalyst Lab Restack

    Client :

    BP

    Location :

    Naperville, IL, United States

    BP Laboratory Projects - Catalyst Lab Restack

    Architectural, engineering and construction support services for this project involved the relocation of several isolated, outdated labs in BP's Naperville Complex to an unused, 3,000 SF pilot plant area that we repurposed into a laboratory.

    To convert the pilot plant area into an open plan laboratory, we designed new process piping, HVAC, plumbing, fire protection and electrical systems with modernized lab casework and fume hoods. The lab, which accommodates eight lab technicians, delivers an optimized functional, safe and productive work environment for research and experiments.

    Client :

    BP

    Location :

    Naperville, IL, United States

    BP Laboratory Projects - Nitriles Catalyst Research

    Along with project construction administration, we provided engineering and architectural services for this laboratory used for nitriles catalyst research, the investigation of new catalysts for the current and future acrylonitrile (AN), vinyl acetate and butanediol (BDO) product lines. These catalysts are prepared by mixing solids and liquids, drying the solutions, then heat treating the solids to the proper composition.

    The resulting catalysts are then tested in automated high throughput experimentation reactors. These highly automated and instrumented reactors are fed flammable gases, oxygen, and ammonia and are located in a laboratory hood.

    BP Research Campus Atrium Addition

    Project name :

    BP Research Campus Atrium Addition

    Client :

    BP

    Location :

    Naperville, IL, United States

    BP Research Campus Atrium Addition

    Tasked with creating a new "first impression" for the 40-building research campus, we designed a forward-looking, inviting atrium addition that received Chicago Athenaeum's American Architecture Award. The atrium addition serves as the new entry that also links to three buildings that were converted from laboratories to offices.

    To ensure the atrium's compatibility with surrounding architecture, we conceived the atrium as a transparent jewel box captured between two massive limestone walls to differentiate the new from the old. In order to not disrupt the workflow of the building, our team coordinated with the client to develop a phasing plan that allowed continuous occupation.

    BP Whiting Consolidated Control Center

    Project name :

    BP Whiting Consolidated Control Center

    Client :

    BP

    Location :

    Whiting, IN, United States

    BP Whiting Consolidated Control Center

    This facility was outdated and beginning to negatively impact the performance of the operators within the facility. Responsible for control of all process operations for the 3rd largest refinery in the U.S., and a critical supplier to America's energy dependent economy, the Cube personnel work 12 hour shifts, 24/7.

    The exp design team engaged itself in the day-to-day operations of the Cube to thoroughly understand the operations and functions of the users group. As a result of this intensive study effort, the team structured its design approach around the four areas identified in the study - sound issues, heating and cooling problems, poor lighting and poor ergonomics. A successful response was delivered that addressed all four of the design metrics and exceeded the client's expectations. As a result exp U. S. Services was asked by the refinery management to return and provide design services on two separate expansions.
