New construction projects and especially renovations are complicated, integrated processes. This program offers you a multi-disciplinary perspective to health, safety and emergency conservation in laboratory design, ensuring better understanding of the needs of all the team members as well as the goals and demands of the project itself.

Through lectures and problem-solving workshops, you will hear from scientists, architects, engineers, and occupational health and safety professionals. Design considerations are approached within the framework of efficiency, economy, energy conservation, flexibility, and health and safety protection. Green laboratory construction has emerged as a compelling objective for universities, government agencies, and the research divisions of prominent private industries. Consideration of this powerful concept has a place in the agenda. You will participate in workshop sessions, tour state-of-the-art facilities, and be invited to contribute case studies that illustrate unique solutions or pose difficult choices.
