11:00 AM - Ultra Compact Surfaces
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM Ultra Compact Surfaces
In this course, we explore a cutting edge surfacing technology, ultra-compact surfacing. Gain insight into how this surfacing material possesses the same characteristics of natural stone while providing unmatched color and design flexibility.
By the end of this course, the design professional will be able to:
Discuss the evolution of surfaces and the various types of surfacing material for interior and exterior applications
Define ultra-compact surfacing and the innovative production process that creates intrinsically unique properties
Discuss designing with ultra-compact surfaces in terms color, texture, and format
Discuss the advantages of compact surfaces in terms of strength, durability, chemical resistance, absorption, abrasion resistance, and ASTM testing
Identify possible interior/exterior application options with ultra-compact surfacing material
Presented by: Danielle Howton 1 LU/HSW

2:00 PM - Laboratory Productivity: Using Science to Design a Lab
2:00 – 3:00 PM
Laboratory Productivity: Using Science to Design a Lab
Laboratories are some of the most technically challenging types of spaces to design. Once the technical aspects are accounted for, what separates the “good” labs from the great? The answer lies in productivity. Whether the lab is for research, testing, or teaching, operating at optimal potential is the goal of any lab. The presenters will start with a brief history of laboratory design, followed by a discussion of productivity metrics which are translatable to various laboratory types. Numerous design strategies and features which maximize productivity will be presented, as well as examples of recent laboratory work. This “arm-chair” lab tour will feature the research behind enabling productivity, as well as the strategies’ effect on sustainability, safety, and job satisfaction. 1 AIA/CES LU/HSW
