Tradeline College & University Science & Engineering Facilities Conference

Attend this conference to benchmark your institution's plans, features, and metrics for renovations and new construction against what leading peer institutions are putting in place to grow their science and engineering programs; boost recruitment; support the new science pedagogies and space requirements; create collaborative, interactive, and entrepreneurial environments and cultures; and get more program with limited capital dollars and lower operating costs. Here you’ll get the details on the latest facility concepts, planning models, and capital project strategies for: Renovation, reuse, and repurposing of outdated facilities for modern STEM programs New classroom configurations: Active learning, experiential learning, and research project-based education Emerging laboratory designs and features Convergence of academic space, programs, and people Increased university–industry partnerships Space allocation, metrics, and layouts for labs, offices, cores, and support space Maker space for product design, prototyping, and display Innovation hubs Flexible and adaptable facilities for shared use and changing programs Shared space for research project and program collaboration Student-faculty interaction and undergraduate research space New open scientific workspace plans Effective social and informal learning space Transparency and visual connections among students and programs Integrated science and engineering teaching and research space Scientific lab furniture and casework Building automation and newly emerging facility technology Energy reduction, water conservation, and sustainability strategies High-efficiency, low-cost mechanical systems Environmental controls and sensors: Occupancy, EMI, vibration, air quality, temp, humidity Make this a key planning event to get your project stakeholders (capital project people, facility planners, facility engineers, consulting architects and engineers, science and engineering program chairs, deans, and faculty members, financial officers, and operations managers) on the same planning page with respect to the details, numbers, processes, and expectations. Consulting architects and engineers must register with their clients.
