To reap the maximum return on new facility investments, engaging with architects in the early planning stages is crucial to map out key considerations on the design and its consequences.

In this session, learn how you can optimise your facility space with designs fit for purpose while flexible enough to adapt to future changes in research demands.

  • Acquiring the perfect space by understanding user requirements
