Ballinger participated in the annual Lab Design Conference, held this year in Philadelphia. Ballinger’s Director of Laboratory Planning, Rick Honeywell, participated in an all-new community engagement forum, “Mentoring the Next Generation of Lab Design Professionals.” The panel, made up of experienced lab design professionals and architects, discussed the qualities they look for in new recruits and how to identify employees who would benefit from expert guidance. Ballinger also hosted guided tours of Colket Translational Research Building at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Robert and Penny Fox Tower, a recent addition to the Wistar Institute.
