As many companies today sort out their excess office space or look to take advantage of inexpensive leasable office space, those needing additional laboratories are looking to re-purpose that office space into lab environments — a concept known as adaptive reuse.
However, adapting former workspaces into highly functional, optimized laboratories is not as simple as changing around the layout. What may not be obvious are the unexpected capital expenses that may be lurking within those existing office spaces:
1. Is the building structure or shell able to support things such as larger/additional rooftop equipment, vibration propagation and changing out ceiling heights or enlarging duct shafts?
2. Are the HVAC systems able to handle the environmental requirements for a lab?
3. How will unique laboratory requirements further impact the scope and cost of changing from existing office space into a lab?
In this engaging webinar, our presenters will help you look beyond the basic attractiveness of adaptive reuse of office space. You will learn to recognize whether those existing spaces can be effectively and cost-efficiently converted to labs that will perform optimally for years to come.
Join experts from Hixson, Alex Lee, EI/EIT, Project Engineer; Chris Schaffer, P.E., WELL AP, Senior Project Engineer; and Paul Thamann, R.A., Senior Project Architect, for the live webinar on Thursday, October 14, 2021 at 2pm EDT. Register today!
