The rate of scientific innovation and change is increasing, and research facility planners are being challenged to make complex decisions about long-term facility viability. In this session, Shawn Maley and George Rieke unpack the differences between scientific disciplines and explore how these distinctions influence the spatial and environmental requirements of labs.  They identify how these factors can improve the traditional lab planning focus on flexibility, adaptability, and shared resources. They detail how these spatial and environmental requirements affect planning processes, and identify the impacts on the long-term viability of lab spaces. They call upon case studies of recently completed laboratory projects and provide lessons learned.
