Maximizing Resources in Design for Science Laboratories are expensive to build and operate, fueled by the need to adapt for new recruits, new projects or new modes of pedagogy. Scientia Architects have developed a course that explores how to maximize campus resources and create safe, flexible and adaptable environments that increase efficiency, reduce waste and enhance collaboration. Learn the basics of laboratory and equipment programming and planning, as well as current trends to promote the most appropriate, safe, cost-effective and energy-efficient design basis for modern labs. The presenters review smart programming, casework options, codes and guidelines, as well as techniques to ensure that your lab equipment is in place and ready to use on opening day. Take-aways include questions to ask your scientists and lessons-learned from panelists’ project experiences.
