Punit will kick-off the all-day pre-conference training session with Dan Doyle from Grumman/Butkus Associates. The workshop titled, “Sustainable Strategies for Laboratory Planning and Design” introduces strategies for designing and constructions sustainable laboratories, both new and renovated.
He is also presenting twice during the main conference. The first presentation titled, “Verifying High-Performance In the Laboratory of the Future at Novartis Institutes of Biomedical Research Inc., Cambridge, MA” will explore the award-winning project through post-occupancy lessons learned including key performance metrics, building systems design, building performance and evaluation methods.
Punit’s second presentation features a recently completely sustainable academic laboratory building for Webster University. In his presentation, he will discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with implementing sustainable solutions in a comprehensive multidisciplinary teaching and research building at Webster University on a constrained site adjacent to another LEED-certified building.
Gregory is presenting a session titled, “Lab Ventilation Rates – An Informed Discussion” where he will discuss what factors influence lab ventilation and, ultimately, provide attendees the ability to make better-informed decisions when making choices around lab ventilation.
