As you know, research laboratories are among the most complex and costly buildings to construct and operate. A research lab’s built environment directly impacts a research project’s success---and the overall safety, integrity, operational, and financial spend related to it.

In today’s hyper fast-paced and highly competitive market, there are many different types of research labs---all of which share similar, yet varying design needs and challenges that must be addressed on a short and long-term basis. Whether your research lab is a wet or dry lab in the Corporate, National, University, or AMC space; effective and cost-competent design, most especially ENERGY effective design, is top of mind to all Owners and design teams.

IQPC’s Next Generation Research Labs summit was designed to address the challenges and provide solutions within the industry, through design and construction, so as to enable research labs to be more competitive in today’s fast-paced design market. View the agenda for more information on our expert speakers and their sessions.

This year’s conference is the perfect opportunity to:

  • Better understand a wide variety of ENERGY efficient design models, practices, technologies, and structural layouts/components----to reduce design and construction costs
  • Explore design methods that will enable you to make the most out of essential resources, enhance research and functional spaces, and effectively collaborate with a wide variety of research teams---and in turn improve design deliverables
  • Examine the top regulations affecting the industry and how to best plan and design to be compliant
  • Dig deep into topics vital to your continued success such as: Developments and Trends in Reducing Contamination Threats; Effective Retro-Fitting for Aging Infrastructures; Science Park’s Master Planning; Energy Efficient HVAC Systems; Technological Interoperability; Innovative Casework and Lab Equipment; and much more

By attending IQPC’s Next Generation Research Labs summit this March in Boston, you will obtain valuable insight on the current and future trends in the research labs design space---and in turn will be able to better plan, design, and execute the most cost-effective and productive designs for your facility and clients.
