Texas Department of Public Safety Houston Crime Lab

With the construction of its new crime lab in Houston, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) expanded its testing and investigative capabilities for the southeast Texas region and took a major step toward alleviating the growing backlog of criminal evidence. The 41,000 SF, two-story facility provides testing for controlled substances, toxicology, biology/DNA, and trace and photographic evidence. The lab also includes a vehicle investigation bay, evidence check-in station and a completely encapsulated indoor ballistics test-firing area. A standout feature of this project is how Building Information Modeling created the precise roadmap to coordinate the structure and extremely complex mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems.
