Ballinger Principal Jonathan Friedan, PE, LEED AP and Associate Principal Stephen M. Bartlett, AIA, LEED AP presented a talk at Tradeline Research Facilities 2015 in St. Petersburg, Florida. The session, titled “Post-Occupancy: Lab Functionality, Flexibility, Energy,” reviewed post-occupancy findings from three high profile science facilities at Johns Hopkins University, the Wistar Institute, and the University of Pittsburgh.

They presented data on modeled-vs-actual building performance, real-world use of interchangeable features, amenities for collaboration and interaction, and operating details. The presenters explained how end-user feedback can inform decisions on next-generation research facilities to maximize return on investment.
