Smart Designs for Science Research Buildings

Science research laboratory buildings often contain noise and vibration sensitive equipment that may be impacted by common vibration and noise sources inside and outside of the building.

This presentation discusses the importance of space planning with noise and vibration control in mind from the beginning. Cost effective methods of noise and vibration control are discussed, as well as general HVAC planning in a laboratory building. Noise and vibration control of special spaces such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and vivarium are also discussed.
