If you’re attending the Tradeline’s Research Facilities Conference this year, you can catch Payette Principal Charles Klee, AIA, LEED AP, discuss the necessity of adaptability in the design of research buildings.
Adaptability is the answer: Planning for strategic recruiting and rapidly changing research needs
Charles Klee and Amy Barrett will speak on how with reduced funding for capital projects and fierce competition for strategic hires it’s no longer affordable to onboard researchers triggering costly, customized renovations – facilities must be designed to adapt to changing needs without overinvesting. Charlie and Amy detail adaptability features for Boston University’s Rajen Kilachand Center for Integrated Life Sciences & Engineering which brings together life scientists, engineers, and physicians with shared workspace, flexible labs, and shared core research space. They chart a planning process which identifies programmatically dependent constituents, differentiates between optional and essential relationships and addresses the adaptability challenge from initial concept through project execution.
