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.
