Research labs need to be able to adapt to change. Science is changing, new equipment is being developed, and funding priorities shift, so modern labs must incorporate some degree of flexibility to deal with this. You start with what are the limits of what you can achieve in your lab. What is a flexible modification and what is a fundamental redesign. How far can you bend your facility before it breaks?
Projections released by the U.S. Department of Education paint a bright future for jobs in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. As populations grow, natural resources diminish, disease prevention and treatment become more complex and evolutionary and universal mysteries continue to be explored, STEM will remain critical to expanding human knowledge and solving challenges of today and for the future.

HEMCO's softwall cleanrooms are designed to meet ISO 5 to ISO 8 requirements and feature a flexible design that allows them to locate over and around equipment, with the option of being mobile with casters.
A building’s energy use intensity (EUI) is measured by the number of kBtus of energy it needs to operate per square foot per year. Code-compliant buildings meet the current energy standard set by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (usually ASHRAE 90.1 2010).
