The Dow Texas Innovation Center, a development by CORE Real Estate, LLC is a new Research and Development Hub for The Dow Chemical Company in Lake Jackson, Texas.
This multibuilding campus complex will house state of the art laboratory facilities, technical expertise centers, administration, engineering, and amenity facilities for the 2000+ employees who will be stationed here. The Campus will be a global R&D Hub for Dow, and furthers Dow’s commitment to sustainable growth as a top 3 Chemical Industry leader.
With nearly 1 million square feet of space, the project includes a 230,000 sf Administration Building, a 60,000 sf Amenities Building, two 4-story Laboratory buildings that total 568,486 sf, and a central plant and warehouse building of 60,000 sf which supports the entire campus. Each laboratory building is designed with lab “wings,” based on a common module that supports different business units within the Dow Chemical organization. The lab design represents the apex in safe-practice, efficient lab design and utilizes a “super module” laboratory unit developed by Kirksey to assist in the management of chemicals and materials.
The Amenities building includes a monumental lobby and visitor’s center, product display center, employee clinic, conference center, and a state of the art fitness center. The site plan takes advantage of the existing wetlands that are found on-site, nestling the Amenities Building and visitor access into the trees creating a nature-park like setting.
