InterTech Park


BRF maintains and promotes the InterTech Park, a 60-acre urban Brownfields, smart growth initiative located in central Shreveport. The resident companies represent pharmaceutical, digital and entertainment media, drug discovery, venture capital support and environmental industries.

About InterTech Park

Initiated in 1997 by community leaders to provide specialized facilities with laboratory, cleanroom, manufacturing and office space for high tech companies, the InterTech Park has grown to include eleven properties with 400,000 square feet and over 21 tenants. The purpose was to create an environment and space that would attract creative companies to Shreveport and retain home-grown talent.

  • The Virginia K. Shehee Biomedical Research Institute, a 160,000 square foot research facility with 56 laboratories where 200 investigators and technicians from LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport conduct basic research.
  • InterTech’s central facility, InterTech 1, is a 60,000 square foot facility that houses BRF headquarters and is an incubator for new bioscience and technology businesses.
  • A 33,000 square foot cleanroom manufacturing facility, where pharmaceutical company Alfasigma now resides.
  • The new Center for Molecular Imaging and Therapy (CMIT), a 20,000 square foot facility housing expanded radiopharmaceutical production operations, patient imaging services and a clinical and translational research program.
