New initiatives to upgrade, expand, and construct research facilities are picking up speed. Old obsolete infrastructure is no longer competitive. New leadership is ushering in exciting new research agendas.  New partnership models and funding sources are emerging.   And the window on a favorable construction market (and construction costs) is starting to close.

Attend this conference to learn the new research facility features, space standards, data, metrics, analytical planning methods, cost benchmarks, and timing for contracts and cost savings that you and your institution should be planning on to achieve:

  • High flexibility at low cost
  • Shared use of resources
  • Collaborative research environments
  • Up-to-date space models (wet/dry, lab/core/social)
  • Research culture change
  • High recruitment and retention
  • High space utilization
  • Ease of operations and maintenance
  • Whole building lifecycle performance
  • More research program with less capital outlay
  • More efficient MEP infrastructure and building systems
  • Better decisions on renovation vs. new construction
  • Lower cost for capital expenditures

Attend this conference as a research facilities planning team to get your key players and decision-makers on the same planning page and build consensus and momentum on the right courses of action. Planning teams include scientific project shepherds, and representatives from capital planning, engineering, operations, financial administration, design, and construction.
