Get involved with Laboratory Design
By MaryBeth DiDonna, Editor
Laboratory Design strives to serve the needs of the entire research community involved in the design, construction, and operation of laboratory facili- ties. With that in mind, I’d like to invite members of the design/
build, architecture, engineering, and construction community to contribute editorially to
We are always seeking feature articles and
case studies from industry professionals, and
we heartily welcome your contributions to our
This year we will feature topics such as ventilation and water concerns in engineering,
project management, design planning, adaptive
reuse, vibration control, HVAC, and acoustics
We will also be doing a construction cost
study this summer, and our annual sustainability issue at the end of the year. You can also
follow us on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn for
current content and special announcements.
Our editorial calendar can be accessed here:

973-920-7045 for more information or to propose your own topics of discussion.
As I mentioned in our last issue, our New
Projects online feature is a showcase of laboratory builds in academic, medical, private,
commercial and government laboratories. This
is a great opportunity to feature a project that’s
been completed within the past year, or a project that will be completed within a year’s time.
A brief 200-word description, two hi-res photos, and a checklist of basic information is all
The New Projects section is a good option
for those of you who are short on time but still
want to contribute information about your latest build to our community.
Look for a special article about our Laboratory
of the Year winners, and a wrap-up of the 2016
Laboratory Design Conference.
