Lab Overview

Greentown Houston provides more than 13,000 square feet of prototyping lab space at 4200 San Jacinto St. This open-concept lab space is where startups take their work from R&D to rapid prototyping while preparing for manufacturing and commercial development.

This lab gives members space, freedom, and support. Take 100 square feet or take 1,000+, and feel free to change it up next month. We’ll take care of your basic operational needs, including safety infrastructure, electricity access, waste disposal, and shipping and receiving. That frees you up to work on what really matters.

The prototyping lab is home to Emerson’s DeltaV Automation Platform, generously donated by our partners at Emerson and Puffer. Automation plays a key role in enabling a startup’s journey to standardization and scalability. With access to two units of Emerson’s DeltaV Automation Platform, member companies can explore capabilities of an easy-to-use, integrated-by-design DeltaV Distributed Control System to scale new technologies into pilot scale and beyond, optimize processes for high quality product, and implement a smart foundation for access to contextualized data.
