Since its opening, the program experienced their best year of recruiting, submitted three grant proposals from new collaborations and held numerous events and symposiums in the new common areas—breathing new life into the program and the quad.
Outdated internal equipment heat gain data can result in oversized systems and higher operating costs, yet it is one of the most difficult areas for engineers to define. To assist the building environment industry in defining these loads and designing more cost-efficient systems, internal equipment heat gain and load density data have been updated in the newest edition of the ASHRAE Handbook.
According to a new report from BCC Research, the market for laboratory automation will grow at a 6.3% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach $3.8 billion in 2017. Market segments such as forensics and agriculture are just two of the new segments expected to increase their use of laboratory automation over the next five years.

The project needed to: safely expel exhaust fumes from laboratories high above the surrounding dormitories; and provide an energy-efficient laboratory exhaust system to reduce energy costs enough to pay back the entire system cost in two to three years.
The 502 Ultra-Air Cage from Alternative Design meets world guidelines for mouse space and density, includes a patented concave/convex seal design to prevent leaks, and features air delivery above animal level for low velocity at animal level.
Lightweight and engineered to reduce cost, Allentown’s NexGen retains high quality standards while providing the LAS industry with a fresh take on research animal housing. Clear polysulfone caging together with strategically placed structural uprights make it easy for you and your staff to perform routine day-to-day operations.
The Tecniplast LDS (Leakage Detection System) prevents flooding inside IVC cages by detecting any water leakage event in its earliest stage and sending an alarm to the operators. The system is comprised of a series of sensor plates mounted on the rear side of the racks just below each cage.
Green Good Design now in its fifth year, identifies and emphasizes the world’s most important examples of sustainable design. It is a special edition of the original Good Design Award, which was founded in Chicago in 1950. CSL received the 2013 Green Good Design Award for its 5-inch aperture Eco-Downlight LED and Eco-Invizilite.
The College of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley is redesigning and rebuilding its chemistry and chemical engineering laboratories with a $30 million, 22,000 sf project in a facility that had not been upgraded for nearly 50 years.
The research laboratory is approximately 13,600 sf and will be the home of skilled employees dedicated to developing biomedical optical imaging and medical robotics technologies with the ultimate goal of bringing to market medical devices for a variety of applications.
Based in Birmingham, Ron led Karlsberger's national laboratory and technology group before the Columbus, Ohio, firm closed in 2011. He was a former national president and distinguished life member of the Society for Marketing Professional Services as well as a founding member and past president of its Alabama chapter.
Hamilton Scientific has been selected to provide custom laboratory bench systems for the Science and Engineering Hall at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
