Newpark Technology Center
The NTC is an office, laboratory, and training facility in Katy, TX for Newpark Fluids.
Newpark Fluid Systems is a world leading provider of pure-play oil and gas and geothermal fluid solutions. Newpark selected Synchro to design and construct a worldwide technology center (NTC) to bring together their technical and administrative staff under one roof. The facility includes a two-story 37,000 SF laboratory wing, an auditorium, a large food preparation and break area, a two-story reception area and a three-story office wing to house several corporate support departments. The lobby houses a 2-story hydroponic living wall made of over 700 plants. The laboratory wing houses a variety of research and development labs, field testing and services areas, a training lab, and a one-of-a-kind drilling simulator. Adjacent to the main facility is a three-level standalone parking structure, as well as water features which provide a visual backdrop to the striking native and adapted landscape design. Synchro assisted Newpark with site selection, programming, design, interior design, and branding.
