What makes us different

Architecture

We specialize in the architectural design of technical facilities required by our clients.  Whether control room design, full control building design, adaptive reuse, or renovation and addition; we offer a team of experienced design consultants capable of listening, contributing to, and helping to define your needs.  Resulting in a solution to fit your needs.

Human Factors

We work to ensure that proper ergonomics, furniture, accessibility, communications, and way-finding within our control building designs are effective, and supportive of ISO 11064 principles.  We use our experiences and techniques to enhance control room vigilance and better situational awareness within a facility.

Command & Control

Well-designed control rooms balance efficiency with ergonomics creating better operator vigilance and alertness.  This in turn promotes better life safety for your facilities!  The importance of safety for on-site personnel in industrial plants is critical and starts with the employees and operations.

Blast Resistance

Our goal is to design blast-resistant buildings to meet the prescribed design criteria. Through diligent detailing and building systems that are defined to protect occupants against explosive risk, fire, and toxic material releases in accordance with recommended practices from RP-752 and RP-753 of the American Petroleum Institute (API).

WE DON’T JUST DESIGN CONTROL ROOMS…

WE ARE SOUGHT AFTER FOR THAT EXPERTISE

In business since 2002, Smith LaRock Architecture P.C. is an agile design firm offering design services to the process control industry across the USA and in Alberta Canada.  We’ve designed facilities in the Middle East, P R China, Australia and South Africa, but we prefer to stay home and offer our expertise to North America-based clients.
