The Lauridsen Group, Inc. R&D Lab

When the Lauridsen Group, Inc. (LGI) decided to expand their corporate campus with the addition of a research and development laboratory, they once again turned to Graham Construction. LGI and Graham have now teamed together for their third project. The R & D Lab will be built adjacent to their corporate headquarters and will serve several of their companies research needs. The 21,422 square foot facility will house four independent labs for Proliant Meats, Proliant Dairy, Proliant Biologics and APC as well as a shared 5,000 square foot Pilot Plant. The Pilot Plant will be used for small batch test manufacturing of new products. The building will also provide office space for researchers, a training and conference center and a research kitchen.
