Lab Repositioning: How Hazardous Materials Drive Design

WBCCLAB, 1 LU|HSW

Understand the hazards that come with laboratory design and specific features of an existing building can help individuals make good decisions for their business and people. Learn how the code can impact not only budgets, schedules, but also the entire building design and explain that while these things may not be top of mind during a lab repositioning project, they should be. This presentation is about the importance of hazardous materials in driving lab design – from the people who have done it.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand why the code applications for laboratory buildings are more complex than for commercial buildings.
  • Describe master planning considerations for hazardous materials.
  • Learn solutions to avoid hidden costs in lab repositioning projects.
  • Learn when laboratory exhaust duct risers need to rated or in rated shafts?
