Contemporary engineering facilities must support a wide range of academic programs requiring highly specialized spaces --including robotics, automation, materials, structural design, prototyping, fluids, heat transfer, and thermodynamics. In this session, the Stantec Team demonstrates strategies for balancing specialized and modular spaces, and identify designs for space efficiency that are economical to build and operate. They deliver a decision matrix for when to integrate instructional and research labs, examine additions to specialized labs that amp the ability to accommodate a variety of functions, and demonstrate unique attributes of these space types to consider.
