“Successful labs are created when all stakeholders and the design team have an aligned vision,” writes RS&H Senior Project Manager Scott Crawford, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP, in the latest issue of Lab Manager magazine. “Every detail must be exhausted during planning to ensure labs are functional, efficient, and safe.”

In his article, Crawford looks at several lab design and planning challenges and gives readers a road map on how to turn them into benefits. Such steps include:

  • Optimizing lab design
  • Planning spaces and utilities for equipment needs
  • Ensuring adaptability
  • Designing flexible infrastructure
  • Right-sizing cooling needs
  • Considering energy recovery methods
