Flotek Industries Headquarters and Laboratory

Karsten played a key role in building Flotek’s new lab and administration building in the Sam Houston Business Park in Northwest Houston. The 50,000-square-foot building doubles the size of the company’s current chemistry research effort, giving Flotek a much greater foothold at being a global supplier for chemistries in the oil field. Their new state-of-the-art building features a unique “command center” in the heart of the research laboratories. Inside the command center is a 3,000-square-foot radius drywall art ceiling that could only have been accomplished with high levels of coordination not only within the Karsten team, but with other trades as well. Due to the detailed specifications and finishes Energy Architecture required of all who helped complete this innovative building, Karsten gathered 20 of their best team members to complete the task. After a little less than a year, Flotek’s new lab can house 45 employees to revolutionize the future of our oil industry.
