This webinar discusses the ongoing opportunities and challenges of repurposing existing buildings for lab use.
With the demand for laboratories spaces increasing in cities, the life science and healthcare sectors are under pressure to repurpose existing buildings for lab use which comes with a myriad of challenges. The design process requires integrating complex water and ventilation systems and specialist products that are costly and demand detailed expertise. Across the UK, most existing mixed-use developments have been built for office use over science use, presenting a challenge for businesses and architects alike to repurpose in an affordable and energy efficient way.
 
With the life sciences sector, incubator spaces and innovation districts on the rise, what resources and strategies are available for architects, developers, and businesses in this sector? and how can the built environment come together to challenge these issues and find solutions? 
 
This webinar discusses the ongoing opportunities and challenges of repurposing existing buildings for lab use, bringing together property consultants, science businesses and architects to share knowledge and best practice.
