The new edition of this book addresses the many changes in laboratory design since the previous edition was published in 2001. It focuses on advances in environmental design and green laboratories while bringing up to date all health and safety aspects of lab design. Features include a new section on sustainable design, new chapters on material sciences engineering and nanotechnology, plus major updates in the Animal Research and HVAC chapters. Architects, design and HVAC engineers, industrial hygienists, EHS professionals, and facilities managers will gain an important ally for their work.
