Looking to the future – The new laboratory

June 25, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


What impact has Covid-19 had on laboratory operation, investment and future design? The webinar looks at the future laboratory environment, greater flexibility, digitalisation, communication and the ongoing requirements for labs such as safety, robustness and cleanliness.

The session will also look at investment into laboratory space for third party occupation and highlight:

  • How we are seeing repurposing of industrial space as a way to cost effectively deliver flexible space
  • How new buildings are being delivered by the private sector
  • How wet lab space has been retrofitted into office space
  • How there is a need for more office space and non-wet lab when these buildings are being considered as technology changes increase the amount of digital work • How smaller suites of space will continue to need funding support where they need to be fully fitted.

Speakers include:

Chair, Ian McFadzen Plymouth Science Park

Kath McKay, Alderley Park

John Sommerville, Creative Places

Richard Walder, BuroHappold Engineering
