Tradeline Research Facilities 2018 Conference

Attend this conference to forge valuable connections with peer research organizations and planning experts, and learn what is being done in terms of facility initiatives for the new directions in lab design, research work environments, space types, space utilization, systems, and costs – facility initiatives that address: Traditionally independent research programs and space are converging Priorities have shifted toward shared core research resources and new research workspace models Lab renovations are on the rise; outdated labs won’t attract new recruits nor are they collaborative New space plans must be highly flexible and adaptable Assigned space is decreasing; New space types are emerging Engineering and computational space must be considered for all new projects; They are now essential for all areas of research Outdated, underutilized space must be reclaimed and repurposed University-industry partnerships are changing lab configuration and design decisions Legacy space allocation metrics are being revised or discarded Shared equipment cores are reducing cost, improving recruitment, and increasing space utilization There is a major move toward open offices for research leadership and staff The demand for new types of support space is increasing Many research facility portfolios are underperforming – wrong type/outdated/underutilized Make this a key planning event for your project team (capital project people, lab planners, facility planners, facility engineers, consulting architects and engineers, operations managers, and research group leaders) to get everyone on the same planning page with respect to the details, numbers, processes, and expectations.
