Avoiding the Top 10 Lab Design Pitfalls

Clark Nexsen presents Avoiding the Top 10 Lab Design Pitfalls

Join Brian Brader and Chris Bartlett on April 24th at the Lab Design Conference to gather tips and tricks on organizing yourself and the data you gather during the lab programming process to set the foundation for project success.

Avoiding the Top 10 Lab Design Pitfalls
Lab Design Conference 
Raleigh, NC
Monday, April 24, 10:10 - 11:00 am

Lab design is a complex, highly technical process requiring both expertise and collaboration for successful results. From research and development to production, laboratory spaces for all types of industries play a key role in improving the health of the world. Getting these spaces right for the scientists and innovators working in them is critical.

With nearly 50 years of combined experience, Clark Nexsen lab planners Brian Brader and Chris Bartlett are teaming up to present a roadmap to a successful lab design by sharing common struggles they’ve encountered – and how to avoid them! This duo has been part of numerous successful laboratory design projects for clients across the nation, including many top R&D and higher education institutions. Along with their many successes, they have identified the “Top 10 Lab Design Pitfalls” that can lead to an undesirable outcome. Their upcoming presentation at the Lab Design Conference will dive into each pitfall, examine the circumstances that cause it, and most importantly, share how to avoid it and deliver successful lab spaces.
