Lab Project Priorities

There are almost as many different priorities influencing design decisions for lab construction as there are projects themselves. What are yours?

Are you embarked on a simple lab update, a gut renovation, or construction of a new science building? Is your highest priority energy or water conservation, or adaptability over time as budget, scientific priorities or user groups change? Some facilities are attempting to accommodate the needs of many scientific disciplines in one building, consistent with interactive, problem-driven research rather than single-discipline approaches so common in the past. Or maybe your new facilities demand highly specialized spaces such as clean rooms and Biocontainment labs.

Local vacuum networks have characteristics and capabilities that support each of these objectives. We invite you to explore how!
