  • Academic cGMP clinical trial batch suites: From grant application success to construction

    The demand for CGMP clinical batch trial suites are on the rise at academic institutions, and rigorous grant application and facility design and construction requirements must be navigated with precision. Mark Paskanik, Amy Caparoni and Steve Triggiano use a case study from the Duke Human Vaccine Institute to chart the steps and techniques used to coordinate stakeholder input and meet regulatory guidelines while staying true to project vision, budget, and schedule.

  • MIT Media Lab findings on long-term maker space productivity

    MIT’s Media Lab is the granddaddy of successful industry/academic maker spaces. Keys to its long-term viability include a proven discovery model and enough facility flexibility to support the demands of highly creative minds from a wide variety of disciplines. Jessica Tsymbal identifies facility design elements, infrastructure features, and operating strategies that have kept Media Lab on the leading edge including its corporate sponsorship model, space allocation strategies, training prerequisites, occupancy expectations, and material and equipment flow.

  • The Hybrid Workplace of the Future: Re-imagining the Office After the Pandemic

    The massive work-from-home experiment underway, triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, proved that people can work remotely. When the pandemic eventually ends though, it is likely that the office we return to will not be the office we left. Instead, we are likely to see a new hybrid workplace that combines part-time remote working and office space designed for effective collaboration. JLL research predicts that 30 percent of all office space will be consumed flexibly by 2030. Understanding and utilizing agile workspace will be a key element to creating the new blended workplace of future.

  • Intelligent integrated solutions for controlling the total research lab environment

    New intelligent technologies that combine control and management of HVAC, containment, lighting, and daylighting in a single platform are enabling organizations to move beyond the traditional (and costly) “lab as energy consumer” approach to a holistic operating efficiency strategy. Paul Fuson demonstrates the advantages of Siemens’ Total Room Automation for Life Science in engaging building operators, energy managers, EHS officers, lab managers, and scientists to significantly impact energy consumption, operations, safety and compliance.

  • Ten steps to transform outdated libraries into 21st century learning environments

    Libraries are changing rapidly from places to store and access information individually to places to connect, create, and collaborate. In response, campuses are looking to add study and instructional spaces, consolidate academic services, and renew existing buildings.

  • Critical vibration control strategies for nanolithography, e-beam metrology and high-sensitivity instruments

    Electron beam lithography, electron microscopes, and emerging ultra-precision instruments are becoming critical for the success of nanotech, materials, and life science research programs and facilities, and building vibration is a potential program killer you need to get ahead of! Steve Ryan details how to plan for the extremely low-vibration environments demanded by nanoscale and other advanced technology spaces, including passive vibration isolation, massive isolated plinths, and point-of-use inertial active vibration control pedestals.

  • Leveraging the Entrepreneurial Mindset of Silicon Valley: The Sobrato Campus for Discovery and Innovation at Santa Clara University

    STEM programs across the country are looking to integrate student entrepreneurship programs with science, engineering and technology curricula, and there’s no more fertile ground for this than in Silicon Valley. Presenters will detail how nine campus buildings at Santa Clara University were designed, renovated, and occupied over the course of 10 months to create a 330,000-sf integrated center for transformational STEM education.

  • Translating data and strategic vision into a physical space plan for engineering and applied sciences

    Many institutions are constrained by quality and quantity of STEM space and struggle to achieve their vision for growth – and as a result, student and faculty recruitment and retention suffer. Here, session leaders demonstrate a process for incremental, strategic renovations that unleash the academic potential of underutilized and outdated buildings. They deliver a case study from the University of Virginia's School of Engineering and Applied Science where the interdisciplinary research enterprise has been expanded utilizing existing buildings.
