In its 48th year, the Laboratory of the Year Awards continue to recognize excellence in research laboratory design, planning and construction. This annual international competition receives entries from the best new and renovated laboratories.
Dubbed the "mystery barge," due to the secrecy surrounding its purpose, the project built...
The new JCVI facility comprises a three-story, 28,600-sf office wing and a single-story, 12,605-...
Laboratory Design Newsletter features new lab construction, renovation, and adaptive reuse projects in each issue and also online. The new projects section of the website hosts a large variety of lab builds in academic, medical, private, commercial, and government labs.
Extensive analysis work was performed by a team from PNNL. Sixteen different building prototypes were modeled in 17 different climate locations for a total of 272 building types and climate zone combinations. The revision will result in buildings that could achieve more efficiency than those built to the 2010 standard.
Illinois leads among all states in 2013; mid-Atlantic region of Washington, D.C, Maryland and Virginia tops list. A research lab project made the list as a notable projects 2013; The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center in Holyoke, LEED Platinum, the first university research computing center to achieve Platinum certification.
LabStrong now manufactures a ventgard filter suitable for operation in Thermo Scientific Barnstead water purification system storage reservoirs. The product protects pure water during storage by preventing airborne impurities such as organic vapors, carbon dioxide, alkali and acid gases.
The $40 million project will add to and renovate the Virginia Department of Forensic Science’s Western Laboratory, as well as the Western District Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, housed in the same building.
The initial building project focused on converting the existing one-story building into a state-of-the art research and development lab.
The dependable, rugged-built weigh cell of the Practum balance ensures that even entry-level users will start weighing right and obtain professional, accurate results at all times. The easy-to-use menu guides the user intuitively through standard built-in applications, such as weighing, counting, peak hold to “lock in” the highest reading of a measurement series and weighing under unstable conditions.
This month's issue of Laboratory Design Newsletter features a cover story on remaking engineering buildings, repositioning strategies for success. Other features include information on successful lab equipment moves, how new buildings are re-defining research and collaboration, how BIM bridges the collaboration gap and how science lab design standards create consistency.
Parabolic troughs and dry-cooled towers deliver similar value for concentrating solar power (CSP) plants, despite different solar profiles, a new report by the NREL has found. The findings demonstrate increasing importance for systems with thermal energy storage.
The program called for new lab, classroom and office spaces to replace outdated and undersized facilities in the surrounding science/engineering precinct, expand the school’s research and teaching capabilities, and support the growth in student enrollment.
The renovation of a 10,950-sf lab facility in the KOLB Building of the New York State Psychiatric Institute aimed to create a comfortable research and collaboration environment for scientists studying molecular therapeutics. The new research and education center includes open labs, as well as specialty procedure rooms for microscopy, electrophysiology, fly behavior and histology.
The innovative building design responds to the site with an interior ellipse and infinity-shaped courtyards that were purposely carved out of the central atrium to protect the native trees that predate the development of the site. Designed to be highly sustainable, the building's heat gain is prevented by a high performance glass facade that is covered with a system of metal fins, which deflect sunrays away from the building.
The project, valued at approximately $10 million, will build a facility that will house a broad variety of energy research and PNNL's campus sustainability program. Research conducted there include national challenges in the power grid's reliability and resiliency, the integration of renewable energy onto the power grid and reducing energy use in buildings.
Lista International offers the availability of mobile bases for almost all of their workbenches and workstations, including the Arlink and Align brands. This maximizes convenience and allows customers to easily reconfigure their workspace to keep up with changing demands.
Proposed addendum bg revises the Native Plant definition, clarifies the Plants section by renaming it Landscape Design, and requires a minimum area of the landscape to be native plants. The addendum is open for public comment, along with four other addenda, until March 9, 2014.
