The construction of new laboratory buildings or the renovation of existing ones requires close communication between laboratory users, project engineers, architects, construction engineers, and health and safety personnel. All too often, health and safety considerations are overlooked or slighted and are not sufficiently incorporated into designs. Guidelines for Laboratory Design: Health and Safety Considerations, Third Edition provides reliable design information related to specific health and safety issues that need to be considered when building or renovating laboratories. With an increase in the number of laboratory renovations due to lower costs and faster end results compared to constructing new buildings, the latest edition of Guidelines for Laboratory Design, which includes new chapters on laboratory renovation, is particularly timely. This well-established and respected volume also includes a vital section on design guidelines for commonly used laboratories and features separate chapters on a wide array of laboratory types. In addition, the updated material contains: -A new section on design for environmental preservation through the operation and maintenance of health and safety -The latest information on laboratory ventilation and safety systems -Incorporation of "green" laboratory design techniques -Discussions on the architectural, engineering, regulatory, and health and safety aspects unique to the renovation process A wide range of professionals–including those in industrial hygiene, chemical health and safety, laboratory management, and architectural and engineering firms handling laboratory construction and renovation–will find the latest edition of Guidelines for Laboratory Design: Health and Safety Considerations essential reading.

Laboratory facilities are complex, technically sophisticated, and mechanically intensive structures that are expensive to build and to maintain. Hundreds of decisions must be made before and during new construction or renovation that will determine how successfully the facility will function when completed and how successfully it can be maintained once put into service. This book provides guidance on effective approaches for building laboratory facilities in the chemical and biochemical sciences. It contains both basic and laboratory-specific information addressed to the user community-the scientists and administrators who contract with design and construction experts. The book will also be important to the design and construction communities-the architects, laboratory designers, and engineers who will design the facility and the construction personnel who will build it-to help them communicate with the scientific community for whom they build laboratory facilities.

Architecture, Sustainable Design A comprehensive book on the sustainable design of research laboratories Today's research laboratories are complex and difficult building types to design, and making them sustainable adds more obstacles. Written by members of the well-known firm KlingStubbins, under the guidance of its Directors of Laboratory Planning, Engineering, and Sustainability, Sustainable Design of Research Laboratories represents a multidisciplinary approach to addressing these challenges. With the needs of architects, engineers, construction professionals, and facility owners in mind, this book provides a road map for sustainable planning, design, construction, and operations. The book is valuable both to experienced laboratory designers seeking guidance on sustainable strategies, as well as professionals versed in sustainable design who want insight into laboratory applications. With content rich in guidance on performance strategies, even the most technically oriented reader will find valuable lessons inside. This book: Focuses on the links between best sustainable practices and the specific needs of research laboratories Provides a number of case studies of the best contemporary sustainably designed labs, with a focus on architecture and engineering Explores the challenges in applying rating systems, including LEED, to laboratory buildings Examines unique considerations of sustainable approaches in leased and renovated laboratories Includes contributions by experts on approaches to integrated design, site design, programming, and commissioning This important book shows how theoretical ideas can be applied to real-life laboratory projects to create healthier and more efficient research environments.

Research institutions have or are planning to build, expand and renovate animal research facilities to keep up with the demands of biomedical research caused in part by growth in the use of genetically altered rodents and the upsurge of research in infectious diseases. Properly designed facilities greatly facilitate effective management and high-quality day-to-day animal care that is required to optimally support animal research and testing. There are multiple solutions to address the myriad of factors that influence the design and construction of animal research facilities. There is no “best design applicable for all facilities and arguably not even a single “best design for a given facility. For this reason, Planning and Designing Research Animal Facilities is not intended to be a “how to book. The goal is to cover the basic programmatic requirements of animal research facilities, provide ideas for meeting those requirements while, hopefully, stimulating the creative process in which designers in consultation with those who work in animal research facilities generate even better ideas. That is how progress has been made and will continue to be made. Facilitates communication between the parties involved in planning and designing animal facilities by providing contemporary information, and stimulating creativity that will help lead to wise decisions and advance the knowledge base for planning, design and constructing animal research facilities
