Payette’s Jeff Zynda contributed the first chapter to the new book, Management Principles for Building and Operating Biocontainment Facilities, edited by Daniel Fisher, Kelly Cole and Steve Westfall. This book is a practical, highly focused guide “intended to be an authoritative planning and management reference for anyone associated with capital projects or facility operations involving biocontainment facilities for research on potentially dangerous biological pathogens and toxins.” The book is available online.
Jeff’s chapter, Critical Factors in the Planning and Design of High-Containment Facilities, kicks off the book. We have included a short excerpt below.
Visit Amazon to learn more about the book.
The design of high-containment facilities is a complex task that involves many different disciplines and professions that must be brought together to provide an integrated solution to a state scientific need. The issues raised in this chapter will provide a better understanding of the critical differences in project processes and design for high-containment facilities relative to any other type of research facility project.” Read more.
Jeff is speaking later this month at Tradeline: Biocontainment Facilities about How the “biocontainment factor” is changing capital project processes and outcomes in San Diego, March 18-19.
