12:15 PM A Fully Integrated Approach to Laboratory Design – the New Lakeland Community College Health Technology Building

As clients are pushing their design consultants to design increasingly more energy efficient buildings, the straightest line to this solution is through a fully Integrated Design Method.  In this model all of the project constituents; owner, architect and engineer; are at the table from the start of the project. All three being integral to setting the ground work for project expectations and goals.  The design process fully integrates the architects and engineers from the beginning to create a resultant solution that will deliver to the client a project that strikes a high balance between aesthetics, program and engineering that can exceed expectations.  Using case studies from the new Lakeland Community College Health Technologies Building and preliminary work from the Suffolk Community College Renewable Energy and STEM Building, the Integrated Design Method will be shown to be a valuable tool to execute a project that is both highly energy efficient and architecturally forward looking.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Building Siting and Configuration
  • Building and Building System Design Considerations
  • Design Outcomes
