Deadline to Submit Speaking Applications: Monday, 10-7-2019
This is Tradeline's 40th conference on laboratory design and research facility planning, capital project management, and facility operations.
An entirely new set of lab-office-support-core space plans are now in force and this conference will focus on the new plans, metrics, and models for labs, offices, cores, and support facilities for research.
- Strategic planning for research facilities
- New plans and metrics for shared scientific work environments: Bench, cores, support space, offices
- New space plans cross-disciplinary teams of engineers, scientists, and data science specialists
- New metrics for space allocation, utilization, productivity, occupancy cost
- Renovation, repurposing, and new construction solutions
- New workplace strategies for researchers and staff
- New flexibility, modularity, and adaptability strategies and features
All stakeholders who are interested in speaking at this conference are tasked to demonstrate innovative ideas, models, and/or solutions using one or more of the elements below, or your own creative new concepts, to address the objectives above:
- New space plans, metrics, and layouts for labs, offices, cores, and support space
- Workplace strategies for modern scientific work environments
- Decision-making on renovation, repurposing, or building new
- Space management and allocation policies for higher utilization
- Flexibility, adaptability, and scalability for new research programs and priorities
- New standards for “wet” bench space: Smaller modules, shared benches
- Less permanently assigned space and flexible assignment of resources
- Collaborative space: What qualifies as collaborative space, what is working, and what is not
- Planning for increased computational space: Plans, metrics, and location
- Centralized research core facilities for recruitment, reduced cost and redundancy, and maximum space utilization
- Multi-, trans-, and interdisciplinary research plans
- Accommodating inreased demand for computational and data sciences into traditional research programs
- Research facility portfolio upgrades for wrong type, outdated, and/or underutilized space
- Recapturing underutilized research space: Setting new space standards, reining in underperforming space, upgrading and assigning it to productive programs
- Features that inspire entrepreneurship and commercialization
- Increased demand for support space: Type, adjacencies, and quantity
- The next generation smart lab – what are the key characteristics?
- Lab equipment and furniture systems that provide modularity
- Flexibility, adaptability, and scalability for new science programs and priorities
- Energy efficiency: Building management systems, heat recovery, chilled beams, neutral air systems, new lab equipment and controls
- Automated lab monitoring and control systems
- Building performance criteria
- New, more cost efficient MEP systems
- Lab casework/furniture systems
- Modular and prefabricated design and construction solutions
