This is Tradeline's 41st conference on the new designs, metrics, and planning models for labs, offices, and support facilities for high-tech laboratory and research work environments. The content of this conference will have major planning implications for your research workspace and space management strategy.
At this conference, you'll forge valuable connections with peer research organizations and leading lab planning experts, and get the details on the new lab, space, and infrastructure support systems that address these new research workplace realities:
- New post-COVID research workplace plans and benchmarks are emerging
- Flexibility planning and design for changing research programs is a top priority
- Legacy space allocation and planning metrics are being revised, and some discarded completely
- Space utilization and new research workspace models are now top drivers of capital projects
- New office plans for research staff and alternative workplace options are gaining traction
- Underutilized, non-science space is being converted to research space
- Construction costs are increasing
- The sharing of research resources has become a major planning priority
- Hybrid workplace models are now being applied to the research environment
- Traditionally independent research programs are converging and moving to shared-resource models
- Less research space is being uniquely assigned, and new space types are emerging
- Socialization within (and between) research groups is now a critical planning factor for researcher engagement
- A move towards building and campus electrification is underway
- New research workspace standards and designs are delivering greater flexibility and adaptability
- Allocation standards for bench-space are being upended
- Lab automation and robotics are changing lab planning standards
- Spaces for cGMP labs, A.I., robotics research, and computational science are in high demand
- Shared equipment cores are reducing cost, improving collaboration, and raising space utilization
Make this a key planning event for your project team (capital project people, lab planners, facility planners, facility engineers, consulting architects and engineers, operations managers, and research group leaders) to get everyone on the same planning page with respect to the details, numbers, processes, and expectations.
More details on agenda and building tours will be available shortly.
Who should attend?
Conference registration is open to those employed at research based organizations and their capital project teams including project managers, lab planners, architects, engineers, construction managers, facility managers, capital planners, space managers, and research program directors who have responsibility for planning, design, construction, and operation of labs and research facilities. Conference registration is limited for those not employed at research organizations.
