General Session #3: The Next Generation of Complex Research & Clinical Buildings

Tuesday, April 30, 10:10 - 11:00 AM

Speaker(s): Josh Meyer, AIA

Room #: Regency Ballroom Q

Over the last seven years, there has been a dramatic increase in complex buildings that incorporate research (experimental and computational), clinical, education, innovation space and specialty functions (imaging, cyclotrons, vivariums, core labs/technology platforms)—and this is pushing the envelope on traditional research building planning. In this presentation, we will look at trends and issues, developing a universal planning module and looking at specific projects that combine all of these features into a complex building that brings diverse groups and functions together.

Key Takeaways:
•    The complex trends and issues these projects present to clients, planners and end users.
•    The various codes and regulations that govern these buildings.
•    The unique research, clinical and educational flows (researcher, clinician, patient, human test subject, student, material and animal).
•    Prepare the audience for this next generation of highly complex buildings.
