Trends and Best Practices in Laboratory Design

This article is based on a 20 March 2018 half day seminar at Northeastern University organized by the BSA/SCUP College & University Roundtable and the BSA Committee on Research and Innovation.

Presenters included: Debi McDonald - JCJ Architecture; Bill Riley - Shepley Bulfinch; Hal Spiers - Payette; Adrian Walters - ARC; Toni Loiacano - EYP; James Newman - RMF Engineering; Jeffrey Zynda - Perkins + Will; Julian Asbury - Arup; Allan Ames - BR+A; John Swift - Buro Happold; and Michael Walsh - Vanderweil.

Laboratory design is evolving. The demands of interdisciplinary, computational and undergraduate driven research, combined with advances in technology and increasing powerful and expensive core and benchtop equipment, are driving a range of new requirements in laboratories. This list is a summation of issues that were discussed in the sessions.
