HTRI is an international company specializing in heat transfer technology. Phase one of establishing their 21 acre campus in Navasota, Texas included constructing a 23,172 sq ft research facility (RTC). This research and testing center included a high bay exchanger testing room and associated offices for research support staff. The design posed some unique structural challenges with a 40 foot eave height and rolling crane. Phase two expanded the HRTI campus to include a new office complex with two new freestanding structures. The complex consisted of a dining and training center and an office building accompanied by a pavilion, covered parking, and site amenities. The dining and training center is a new freestanding building of 14,968 sq ft. It offers amenities to the patrons such as an exercise room with associated showers, toilets, lockers, and dressing rooms as well as a catering kitchen, dining area with restaurant style booths. The training room is separate from the dining hall by a folding partition and features a seating area with associated table and chair storage room, lectern area with a fixed projection screen, and a coffee bar area.
