Cynthia Labelle, AIA
Senior Project Manager

A plethora of new science and technology capital projects have just come online, and this session delivers lessons learned that should reshape plans for upcoming construction and modernization initiatives. Michael Reagan and Cynthia Labelle dig into post occupancy evaluations for recently completed science, technology, and engineering spaces and extract data on what is working, what’s not, and why. They re-examine initial project target metrics and goals and evaluate project outcomes performance. They chart utilization numbers for collaboration spaces, configurations for experiential/active learning and team-based education, and successful features for maker spaces, project labs, and shared design studios.
