Associate Principal Stephen Bartlett, AIA, LEED AP and Associate Principal Bradford Crowley, PE, LEED AP led a session at Tradeline’s 2012 International Conference on Research Facilities. They outlined the strategies for comprehensive renovation of older research facilities, with a focus on space planning and mechanical systems upgrades to improve energy efficiency.
Stephen and Brad drew on current project experience by featuring two case studies, a 200,000 SF biology research building for Johns Hopkins University and a 250,000 SF teaching and research building for the Schools of Pharmacy and Dental Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. Both projects include complete renewal of MEP systems, interior renovations of research lab spaces, and phased implementation strategies made necessary by ongoing partial occupation.
Tradeline is an industry resource that presents high level conferences focused on the latest planning, design, operations and financial thinking for the built environment. This year’s International Conference on Research Facilities was held in Scottsdale, AZ.
