This annual conference is open to all involved in the facility plan-build-operate-maintain lifecycle for high containment facilities.  It is the annual industry meeting for capital project planners, project managers, engineering managers, facility managers, operations managers, architects, engineers, consultants, research program administrators, animal facility & vivarium managers, scientists and researchers, EH&S and biosafety officers who are concerned with the latest developments in construction, operations, safety, regulatory compliance, standardization, and cost-control for biocontainment facilities.

Biocontainment programs are facing a staggeringly complex menu of decisions about meeting pressure control requirements, establishing facility SOPs and operating cost benchmarks, meeting regulatory requirements and certification guidelines, and improving design and construction standards.

This conference reveals the new decisions required for unfailing biocontainment programs.

Here you’ll get the new data, numbers, and experience that are now guiding critical decision making for biocontainment facility planning, construction, and operations.

Attend this conference as a team to benchmark your facility plans and operating model with respect to:
• Costs and protocols for safe operations and maintenance – BSL-3, ABSL-2/3, BSL-3Ag
• New regulatory guidance and implementation strategies
• New solutions for renovations, space conversions, and upgrades
• Successful commissioning, validation, and start-up strategies
• New guidance and solutions for pressurization and air flow
• Procedures for developing risk assessments and risk mitigation plans
• Sustainability and energy-use-reduction initiatives
• New materials for flooring and wall surfaces
• Decontamination and waste treatment options
• New air filtration and HVAC systems

PLUS! Pre-conference courses:
- The Fundamentals of Planning and Design of Biocontainment Labs and MEP Systems
